I've decided, on this new blog, I'm going to do "In the Blogosphere" posts every *other* week instead of *every* week, to allow for some fun -- and frivolity. After all, it is Friday and summer, for writing out loud.
First, I want to give a couple of fist bumps to some awesome people.
|You betta recognize! (Yes, this, sadly is my most badass face -- which is why I covered most of it!)|
- James River Writers.* OK, so that's a slew of folks, but the whole organization is pretty amazing, and everyone I have ever met there has been super fab. Among them:
- Kris Spisak, for working wonders every month, putting together fabulous "Writing Shows" -- and especially for being kind enough to have me sit on this month's panel
- My fellow panelists, Web expert Frank Petroski & online platform and marketing consultant/Twitter guru Dan Blank, from whom I learned a lot last night
- Bill Blume, our fantastic moderator/everyone's favorite Web cartoonist, who always makes Richmond a B-L-A-S-T
FUN (and Dorky)
Last week, I was Tweeting with Frankie Diane Mallis (another fist bump!) about the Spice Girls, which got me thinking of songs that might be embarrassing (or awesome?) to admit I loved (okay, love?) -- songs which need some resurrecting. During my two-hour ride home from Richmond last night, I rocked it out to this little gem, which I almost forgot existed:
Any songs you'd like to resurrect? Even if you're pretty sure others will judge you for it? ;)
*The JRW has just started a new blog to gear up for their October conference -- you should def go check it out.
