In the past six years, the number of foreign tourists traveling to Iceland has more than doubled. In fact, the average yearly growth rate of tourism has been 21.6% since 2010. So after seeing four different groups of friends make the trip in a matter of two months, I decided to check it out for myself to see what all the hype was about. And if there’s nothing else you get out of this post, get this: it’s well worth it, and you should go ASAP! To make it even easier for you to plan a trip, below are some of my tips for traveling through the country: Read more
I’m an avid Taylor Swift fan. As in, I’ve thought about her every day for the last eight years. Is she getting her daily serving of fruit? Is she driving safely and under the speed limit? Did she read Yahoo News Digest today? These are the questions that keep me up at night.
Millions of people have trouble waking up in the morning. Personally, if I can get on my feet, I know I’ll be okay, but the struggle to make it that far is beyond difficult! I used to tell myself that I would leave my phone on the other side of the room so I could get up to turn the alarm off, however, I stay up late sending texts and checking out Twitter with my phone right by my side.

Let me tell you why.
I find end-of-year and/or “best of” lists fascinating. They’re a great, digestible way to commemorate the year, and I love that I always learn something new. With that said, there are so (arguably, too) many out there. And they cover a massive range of topics and industries. That’s why I’ve started keeping tabs on my favorite ones! In no particular order, here are my top 10.
Here at Cutline, we like to celebrate holidays. And today is no exception. In fact, today is an especially awesome holiday because it’s a chance to thank the tens of millions of soldiers who have fought, and continue to fight, for our freedom. And in Silicon Valley, many tech companies have also been celebrating Veterans Day by honoring all of the heroes who have served in the military.

Last Thursday was a particularly cool day for me. “Why’s that,” you ask?! Because I had the pleasure of attending the first-ever Pitch SF ‘11 at AT&T Park - an expo event that gave nearly 2,000 attendees up close and personal access to the latest and greatest web and mobile startups. I should mention this all went down on the Club level concourse of the ball park.
