Friday Link Love

Thanks to everyone who participated in the LinkedIn Secrets & Success Webinar yesterday. It was a fantastic presentation – Susan Johnston walked us through both her presentation slide show and LinkedIn’s pages, giving us strategies all the way.

Yesterday was also a great day in terms of marketing. I had sent out plenty of LOIs all week. One client got in touch yesterday and I’m meeting with them in their local office next week. Another is putting together plans for next year and said the timing of my note was perfect.

When I got up yesterday I was fighting off a horrible headache. I wasn’t sure it wasn’t a migraine because it came with the same symptoms except for the eye glare/movement. A few Advil and several cups of tea later I was feeling okay. By Webinar time I was in good shape.

Today is my man’s birthday (and not a day older is he in my eyes), so I’ll be off wrapping gifts and making a cake. For that reason, I’m going to let you browse through some great blog posts I’ve taken notice of this past week. Plus I’ll toss in one of my own.

Have a great weekend!

    Thanks for the links. Started reading through them and find the posts very helpful.

    And here's my post today, where I talk about writing and luck. It is a bit rambling:-)

    Thanks for the link love, Lori (alliteration this early?) 🙂

    I appreciate being in such great company – and I love you right back, Lori!

    Have a great weekend everyone!

    I'm looking forward to the links. I need to get back on the marketing train. I need to ease back on the teaching and fill in some other gigs after the first of the year. The teaching:writing ratio is out of balance, and I need to readjust.

    So the fresh inspiration will be welcome!

    Happy weekend, everyone!
