I could not easily construct a blog on my website, so I created a number of separate blogs, using free services such as Blogger, WordPress, Yahoo.
I wasn’t sure of my “brand,” so I tried to be everything. It was exhausting. read more >
I have over 6,600 tweets at my Blogging Bistro Twitter account. While Twitter is not the primary social network I use, I do love to share links to stuff I’m learning about social media marketing.
