Social Media and Finance – Making it Work for You!

Written by on May 1, 2012

It's been a long year. Well, almost a year since I last posted. If any of you were keeping track of that.

I've had an invite for awhile now. Finally have a few spare moments to check it out. I'm very ashamed it's taken this long, but it's been a busy summer. So far it looks great! I haven't read anyone elses reviews on it, but I like it. I've always loved Digg though. What I do not like, is having to verify my own feed the way they want me to, which is to post this verification key: 291a67d7aa5e...
