How often are you on Twitter and Facebook?
I’m not really sure. Easily seven times a day.
Kitchen Studio of Naples
How often do you update on Twitter and Facebook? I probably average two to three updates
What are three favorite work-related blogs or websites you read regularly? I love so many.
This is a hard question. I tend to bounce around, but I probably visit Freshome, Inhabit and Remodelista the most. I like browsing Tumblr and Pinterest too. I never know what is going to catch my eye.
Do you like it? If not, what kind of phone would you rather have? I had high hopes for HP but ,
now I’m looking for a phone with great battery life and good call quality. I’m watching the new Droid phone with the Ice Cream Sandwich OS as an iPhone alternative.
Where are you geographically? I’m in Naples in
Where are you professionally? I am a Certied Kitchen Designer (CKD) and the principal designer for Kitchen Studio of Naples, Inc., which I created as a tool for clients to solve the complex array of functional, technological, sustainable and aesthetic considerations that go into building or remodeling.
What do you use your phone for? I use it for
everything: calls, Internet, streaming music, calendar, taking pictures, directions and playing games.
Are there any apps that you can no longer live without? My favorite app is Evernote. Besides
keeping notes and photos on it, I archive my favorite recipes on it. I can access them any time for ingredients while shopping or cooking at a friend’s house.
Are you on Twitter? What is your Twitter handle? Yes, @KitchAnn_Style after my blog.
(Kitchen + Ann = KitchAnn, get it?)
Are you on Facebook? Of course. I have a business page and a personal page. Whom do you follow on Twitter? I follow all
kinds of interesting people, from @GuyKawasaki to @IntDesignerChat to @SweetPaul. Sometimes I read the feeds as they come; other times, I might focus on my speci c lists, such as “Tile and Stone.”

Is there someone you wish would follow you?
My next client.
Do you have a blog? Or do you write for a blog?
I have a blog—KitchAnn Style—and guest blog on a few others.
Do you have an iPad? No. Would you like one? Yes, please. How much time during a week do you spend on social media? Too much. Is this problematic? I will never admit it. I do try
to take the weekends off from tweeting. ■ —Alice LIao
What do you do on Twitter and Facebook?
I often link to posts on my blog (www.KitchAnn. com) or photos I uploaded. I also like to see what my designer friends are doing around the country. When I have the time, I like to participate in online chats. I probably read the tweets from Interior Designer Chat the most.
What are some favorite blogs or websites you read for kicks? It really depends on my mood.
I might go to Post Secret one day and Damn You Auto Correct another.
What kind of phone do you have? I have a
Palm Pre that’s on its last leg.
