It has been quite a while since I posted an update here. I have been focusing on the business blog more over the past couple of months. My current goals for October – December 2008: Update/upgrade the website. I really need to fix the HTML code and give a new look and feel.  This should […]


For me, one blog post can take up to an hour (or longer) to create and submit to social media sites.  Its not so bad now that I post only once or twice a week on both blogs (this one and http://www.greenandchic.com/blog), but once I start posting daily, that time will add up.  Last week, I found […]
