    Hi Ana,

    I just wanted to drop by and say it’s nice to see you posting again. I also wanted to say that I wasn’t sure you knew this, but your Google plus embed links look terrible on Feedly and on mobile. The page takes ages to load and the formatting is kind of strange and I can never get “read more” to show. I wish you would go back to your old way of posting :(

      Thanks for letting me know, Kelly. Not sure what I am going to do about formatting yet, but will definitely look into it.

  2. Ana,
    I’m a new subscriber, and I am enjoying reviewing your weekly marketing news email.
    I have a very unique online business, as the world’s largest dealer of rare & antique Bibles (Greatsite.com – The Bible Museum, Inc.), and I am always looking for new ways to improve my online marketing and social media presence. Thanks for your informative newsletter.
