A Quick Update from Pat—Is it Finals Week?

Wow - it's been a busy, busy week! It sort of feels like I'm studying for finals. You might think I'm crazy, but I actually love this feeling. ;) You see, next week I'm flying to New York to attend Blog World Expo.

Why I Almost Left the Room While Speaking at Blog World Expo

I had attempted to record a dual podcast episode and video slideshow of the presentation I did at Blog World Expo to include in this post, but 5 minutes into the recording my voice went hoarse. I guess I still need a couple of days to recover. I am, however, happy to write a recap [...]
