I just read a post on another website about personal safety, especially on college campuses. It is such an important message.

And, you may know the rest of the story -- the… Continue

Once I figured that out, I had to figure how to make my site say all that in the first 5 seconds. That's what you've got when people hit your site ~ just a few seconds for them to know if they… Continue

Then, as I decided I was going to start a blog…it felt just a bit funny to have anxiety over joining the online community while sharing my life on a blog for all to see.
So, I joined. I added a few people. I added more people. People found me. I found them. I’ve not really figured out the chatting aspect to it…yet.
But, I’ve remained a bit aloof of the whole thing because, I’ve decided, I… Continue
