      Dear Sara,
      I am very interested in meeting with other people in the Portland area who can offer a little assistance with WordPress. Unfortunately, I am just not the kind of person who works well with the written support forums they offer. Would I be able to come to the 2nd Thursday meeting in October at Tabor Space?

        Mary,
        So sorry I’m just seeing this! Yes, by all means come and get help in person. We all share ideas and tips. If someone there can’t help you, at least we can point you in the right direction.

    Older profesionals and social media 

    Great little article about social media engagement. I love being quoted but it’s a bit unfortunate that I’m in the demographic of “older professional.” Evidently “older professional” begins at 40! Have a great weekend.

      Sara,

      Thanks for the article link, cheers on being quoted too!

      Ahem, speaking as a 40+ ‘older professional’ at least we can be called:

      S.O.B–A Spunky Old Broad Who Kicks Butt.

      LOL.

      I did understand the fear at first, putting yourself out there etc. Social media is here to stay and not going anywhere. When I advised my recent client to get on the boat or get left behind, it led to a further promotion and management of the international side of things for me. I’m not complaining, I’m quite fortunate that it happened. They just didn’t know where to begin and I had already been doing it for a few clients. Baby steps after all. I applaud the older folks, ahem, 70+ or so getting on the boat and putting themselves out there.

      The part I liked best was ‘Balance Your Time’. This is so important especially since I’m freelance. You do have the luxury of choosing which ‘day’ you work your 80 hours a week…..lol. It’s important not to get burned out too. Since I work ‘Australia’ time too it has given me a new respect for working 24/7 and being mindful to step back, rest, enjoy, collaborate, craft, etc.

      I digress.

      Happy weekend!

    Clearly, I’ve had too much coffee this afternoon or I need a nap! Can you believe all of my typos? You get the idea. Please come.
