June Hands On Sessions!

Have you heard? There are 10 Hands On Social Media sessions being held this month. Woot! I know the news has been flying around twitter, but my travel/work schedule hasn't allowed me to get the word out till now.

I'm super excited about the whole thing. Kirtsy held a handful of these sessions earlier in the year and the response was universally: we want more, please. So we've been working hard to find the right sponsor — and when Office Live heard about Hands On they jumped at the chance to host 10 big sessions this month. FYI: sponsor = free sessions for readers. Nice.

What are Hands On Social Media (HOSM) sessions? Women getting together to learn
social media basics in a very cool, non-stressful way. Like how to Twitter. What to do with Digg/Kirtsy. And when Flickr might come in handy. HOSM is like the new tupperware party — but there's nothing to buy. And they're FREE!

June sessions will be held in Charlotte, Denver, Houston, Salt Lake City and Little Rock. You can find dates, times, registration info and more details at

The first session is in Charlotte tomorrow. It's going to be taught by my kirtsy partner, Laurie, and it is going to be amazing. If you're in the area — and you're a social media newbie — make every effort to be there. Totally worth it, I promise.

This coming weekend, I'll be team-teaching two sessions with the always enthusiastic Gwen Bell:

To any Colorado peeps who might be reading:

I've been jonesing for a get-together since I moved here — I'd love to meet all the wonderful friends that sent kind emails and cool suggestions of places to check out. If you can make it to the Denver or Boulder sessions, I hope you'll come! It's totally free, you'll learn fun stuff and you'll get to hang out in two of the coolest places in Colorado. And mostly, I'd love to meet you!

Off to fix that date...

Any plans for a DC event? I'd be willing to help coordinate. Anything to get one out my way :)
