Happy Thursday Communication FUNdamentals readers! Writing your blog posts ahead of time gives new meaning to the phrase "time flies when you're having fun" cuz here I am on Monday writing as if it's Thursday. I have one toe in the future contemplating my newest gray hair! As if I wasn't getting old fast enough on my own...! ROFL For months I've been telling you that I'm going to be adding some new articles to the Art of Eloquence site. You probably thought this day would never come but here it is! How did this happen you ask? Well, to be perfectly candid, I'm supposed to be writing some new eBooks but I hit a wee bit of writer's block and I'm playing hooky from it for a few minutes. I spruced up some of my old Tuesday Tips articles that were buried under mounds of old blog posts and popped them up on Art of Eloquence. Violin!...I mean, viola! I have a few of them up there for you, but here's one I thought would be very timely. With everyone trying to figure out this Twitter and Facebook thing, I thought I would point out one of my new articles that might help you communicate more effectively on social networking sites that allow limited space: How to Say What You Mean in 140 Characters or Less! Another great and FREE resource is my internet radio show, Grace Talk Soup. Today is the first day of our new format with my new cohost!
