While San Francisco ranked number 1, Tulsa comes in at a respectable #38 on Bloomberg magazine’s America’s 50 Best Cities list. According to the article, greater emphasis was placed on leisure amenities this year. The figures for the ranking came from data company Onboard Informatics and the nonprofit Trust for Public Land.
The post mentions just a few reasons Tulsa ranks so high on the list.
Pro sports teams: 1
Park acres per 1,000 residents: 19
Percent with graduate degree: 6.2

It appears the secret is out about Tulsa. As a native Tulsan who has enjoyed returning home, I’m very happy to see the City of Tulsa getting such recognition.
While I’m regretting the traffic problems that will most likely come from more people moving here, the more the merrier! Come on down.

Testimonials from #SMTulsa Conference 2012 “I learned so much, and met some really great people. The conference didn’t just talk about social media. It provided tools, ideas, and inspiration on how to utilize social media to further you in your life, business, hobbies, and interests. I’m going to pass along what I’ve learned to others.” – Stephen Cale
“For me it was the perfect conference… great sessions, places, and spaces to hang out and connect with old friends or new ones when not attending a session. I enjoyed the flexibility to be as involved (or not) as I wanted.” – Mandy Vavrinak
“For the second year in a row, I’ve learned so many valuable ways to use social media to reach more people for our non profit endeavors. I brought others with me this year – because there is SO much information to soak in – more ears were better than my two. GREAT CONFERENCE!” – Judi Grove
On the Social Media Tulsa Facebook page, I started something called “Tools Tuesday” where I share some of my favorite social media and content creation websites. As I visited Storify this morning, it was easy to see why I enjoy using this site. I love that Mashable started this Storify. I remember I was in Riverside, CA on 9/11/2001. I woke up to unimaginable sites coming from New York. I remember bringing rabbit ears to work so that we could watch on the TV in my office. I remember feeling numb but still going through the motions of sending out emails, and doing “work”. I remember feeling bad for my co-worker whos birthday is September 11. I remember worrying about my cousin who often had to work at the Pentagon, or dozens of our employees preparing for a show in Pennsylvania and could have been on one of those flights. I guess what I’m trying to say is, I remember. Please feel free to share where you were.
