Living at the Speed of Sound

I can't believe how quickly the days are passing! Is it really back to school time again? My girls go back the day after Labor Day here in Virginia. They're looking forward to getting back into the routine of learning and classes. The house will be quiet during the day again with them away - but I work full time, so I'm not here to appreciate it either.

Last month I went to CHA and got to attend a class taught by the lovely Claudine Hellmuth, artist extraordinaire! Claudine's seminar was not about hot new art techniques, how to expand your artistic talent, or anything like that, but rather on the value and how to of social networking.

Up until this point, I had always thought the email lists I participated in and the message board forums I posted on were all there was. Discovered there was more and it was great! Since then, I've joined Twitter (which I prefer to facebook and myspace) and I've just been having a fun time meeting new folks and getting exposed to a host of new ideas, all in 140 characters or less at a time. Talk about instant info!

I've also committed to weekday blog updates. Wish my life was more interesting so you'd want to read about it, but since it's not, I'll just share the cool stuff I'm finding in my new wider web life.

What's your fav social outlet? Do you actually spend time with "real people" in person?! What a concept! LOL

BTW, sale in the store for Labor Day - 35% off your entire purchase. Time to move some product so I can shop for some new ones! Click the pretty blue ticket and be sure to enter coupon code LABORDAY at check out so the discount calculates for you.
