Social Media Saturday: Now Serving with Flavor

by Molly Jo Realy @RealMojo68

Are you serving up your media with flavor?

I know, you’re thinking, “What the heck is that?!”

FIVE THINGS FRIDAY: Finding the Write Gift

The gift giving season is upon us and there’s always that one person who’s difficult to buy for. Am I right? And usually, it’s the write person. (See what I did there?)
