If you're a long time subscriber, you already know about my AskElizabeth Firestarters. 
If you don't know, click here.

This month's Firestarter is Craig B. (not using his last name since I didn't ask him if I could)

I got a call  yesterday from Craig B., (subscriber since 8/6/08) telling me that he has "torn a strip" (my words, not his) off his IT staff because clearly something is wrong with their company's server since he has NOT received my newsletter since January!!!!

I told him not to tell the IT dept but, I haven't sent one since Jan. but THANKS Craig for missing me enough to yell at people! You are a great Firestarter!

I have been re-formatting the newsletter and working on my upcoming presentations...

And Jennings was home on winter break, there was the AAOP meeting, a family reunion for my grandmother's 100th birthday and the US ISPO meeting in the DR and all the preliminary work on the US ISPO PacRim meeting next January in Hawaii.

BTW - Abstracts for Hawaii are now being accepted, click here.

Please let me know ASAP if you like the new format or if you liked the old one better. Email me.

got FMO? (or Why You Don't Need a Website Anymore!)

FMO This (short) post is by the guy (Paul Dunay) who is writing the book called "Facebook Marketing for Dummies"

"...With Facebook Fan pages you can build your own website on the Facebook "Platform". A website that is totally FREE of hosting and server costs, public and indexable on all search engines, with unique URL's for individual landing pages that you can tune based on if they are Fans or Non Fans, where you can host all your video (so long as it is under 10mb) and upload your product catalog with detailed descriptions (and get feedback from Fans)..."

Read it here.
