Being a Virtual Assistant is great (see photo). I work from home, make my own hours and don’t have to wear pantyhose if I don’t want to. However, it has its drawbacks. As I pointed out in two of my very first blog posts, “Virtual Assistant: A Day In The Life (Parts 1 and 2)”, [...]

Posted on December 17th, 2010 by Kris  |  1 Comment »

[UPDATE] Apparently, Yahoo is just looking to sell Delicious not completely shut it down, but I think it’s still a good idea to export your bookmarks and have them saved. I also think, after using Diigo, that I may just stick with that. Yes, I’m that kind of girl.

I recently read an article called “Avoid Making A Colossal Mistake: Keep Your Social Media In-House” that makes a lot of good points about why you shouldn’t let an outside party take over your social media campaign.
