My Favorite Part:
What I love about this site.. victims around the world can easily submit stories to the website using their PCs or mobile phones – to share their moments of courage, strength and endurance before they successfully became survivors. They can do it with their real names or as an anonymous individual. I read one story yesterday that moved me and touched my heart completely.

New Mobile App KOJAMI Improves Social Life

Some like to call me a social butterfly but for anyone who knows me well knows working the DC scene is just that- work. Whether I’m hosting an event or covering it time and information gathering isso valuable. I am a big fan of anything that eases the process of getting somewhere and tracking down all the vitals of the event. That’s why I’m so excited about the launch of a new mobile app called KOJAMI. This app created by Keadworks helps you find any type of event just by using your phone. You can purchase tickets, rsvp, navigate, share pics and video all in one spot. I’m convinced it’s gonna change how DC does the scene.

KOJAMI is the new app out from Keadworks. One of Keadworks’ clients Becky’s Fund has had great success trying out the app. Look for other area businesses like O’Neill Studios, Jamachi Plastic Surgery and Med Spa and personalities like DJ Neekola to be using it more.

On a personal note… I have had great success with Keadworks. They custom made my site exactly how I wanted it and are always available when I have questions or want to make changes. Feel free to call Keadworks with any web,marketing or social media marketing questions. Their free sessions come with refreshments at their new Downtown Silver Spring Office.
