Friday Favorites

AT BLOG GRAPHICHello, friends! It’s been a whirlwind in my world this about your week? I’m so excited to tell you about Megaphone Summit…an influencer conference I help organize.  If you are a blogger or want to be a blogger, if you work in social media marketing or want to work in social media marketing…this conference is for you! And did I mention…social media expert, Peg Fitzpatrick will be there too? It’s in Fayetteville, AR, Sept 9-11. Would love to hang with you there. Megaphone_Logo_wTag
