Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday!  I’m getting ready to head to Austin, Texas for the ReWrite conference later this afternoon!  I will be speaking there about one of my favorite topics–using Pinterest to build your platform! Behind the scenes, my team and I have been busy getting ready for the spring session of Elite Blog Academy.  Doors will be opening April 14th, but you can sign up now to be added to the waiting list.  (Our fall session completely sold out, so be sure to add the date to your calendar!)

In other news, our Secret 13 Essay Contest finalist this week was Amanda. You can read her journey here.  Be sure to check it out–it is definitely thought-provoking!  There is still a little time to submit your own entry for a chance to win an all expenses paid cruise for four on the Carnival Sunshine, so be sure to check out all the details HERE!

    I had the pleasure of being seated next to you and your assistant on my flight back home to Austin this Thursday. I hope you all have a great conference and after chatting with your assistant in flight look forward to reading/ordering your book. Told my wife I was very impressed with y’all’s running approach to the gate to make the flight
