Thanks for visiting. I am no longer updating Notes to Self. I hope you'll join me on my current website,

Dream Girls

One of the amazing things about having my dad for a dad was watching him pick up a piece of blank typing paper (or a No. 9 envelope, or a cocktail napkin), pull out his black ballpoint pen, and start scribbling notes. It was amazing, because you knew something was taking shape on that scrap of paper that was going to gather people and energy to it, until it became real: a book, a television show, a concert, a dinner party. My father was one of those people who could dream a thing into being.

My very dear friends at Kirtsy are also those people. Sometime ago, they got the idea to put a book together that would celebrate the way women are telling their stories online. And now we have this:

I'm really proud to be a part of this book. I can't wait to hold it. It's available today, through various outlets, and launches are planned around the country. I hope to get to at least one of them. In the meantime, why don't you go to Laura's blog, and congratulate the ecstatic mamas?

Speaking of Kirtsy, I will be teaching a free 101-level social media seminar for small business, courtesy of Kirtsy and Microsoft Office Live, at the public library in Maumelle, Arkansas this Thursday. If you have a small and/or home-based business in the area, and aren't using social media for business yet, come out, and find out how you can and why you should. There is also a session in Hot Springs on the same date, being led by Susan Payton of Egg PR and Marketing. We'd love to see you at one or the other.
