Greetings and Salutations!

My poison ivy has suddenly gotten worse :) Bob gave this to me on last Saturday, after he helped a friend chainsaw down some trees. Now my whole face is affected, one eye is closing, both wrists are swollen, and spots are all over. It's making it hard for me to type, so I'm doing the best I can to catch up on email.

There's always something exciting going on :)

Social Networking
Before the ivy got this bad I was able to add some coding to our social networking admin area. With the update, if something is not quite right with the URL you entered, it should show you a note explaining what should be tweaked before it can go live. A few common issues -

* For the twitter name, don't include the "@" sign. The Twitter code needs just the account name with no "@" sign in it.

* For Facebook, make sure the link is to a fan page. The code to do the promos can't work with personal pages, it can only work with fan pages. If you don't know how to make a fan page, post in the social networking forum and we'll help out! Learning how to make and promote fan pages is a great skill to learn for all your web projects.

Please let me know if you have any questions about your social networking entries!

Let's do a chat next week to talk about reaching goals! Make a list of the goals you'd like to reach by the end of the year, and we'll all brainstorm to help find ways to get you there! Let me know which day or days work better for you, and I'll choose the one that works the best for as many editors as I can.

Have a great day!
