I am Ashley Beal the Social Media intern for the summer of 2014. With it only being my first week (Wednesday and Thursday), I have already been hit with a lot of information. This isn’t in a bad way, but pretty much in a good way. I never knew Bridgeport, Ct had so much history. With it only being the first week, I already know that much more than before. I just want to go out and advertise like Barnum to get the city to understand how important the museum is and how rich our history really is. So far I have found countless amounts of information on Tom Thumb, P.T. Barnum and Jenny Lind, which I will use to write facebook posts about them in the following weeks to come. The themes I have chosen are pretty interesting, so I hope the rest think so as well. I think the only problem I am going to have is keeping myself on track, because I seem to find one thing and then go off on a tangent looking at something else that relates but isn’t as important. I mean who won’t, when there is countless information and the majority of it is quite interesting? The rest of the weeks will be filled with fun as well as informative tasks.
The other project I will enjoy is cataloging the items donated to the museum. It is more of a hands-on type of project and I get to engage with the items and learn more about Bridgeport as well as Tom Thumb, P.T. Barnum and Jenny Lind. Well the first week has been a blast so far, can’t wait for the rest. Stay tuned for the rest of my adventures I will encounter while interning.
