I have made some wonderful friends thanks to social media, and Friend Makin Monday is one of the ways I like to spotlight my friends and share them with you. There are so many great connections that can be made! Today's edition features the always amazing and often hilarious women from The Blogrollers together and separately!
I <3 The Blogrollers!!! Chatterbox and AskWifey are vivacious, beautiful, innovative, multi-talented, adventurous, honest, and genuine women. I met them in person at the Type A Mom Conference I attended last month, and they were easy to spot because they wore their ultra-social-media-geek t-shirts from FollowMeTees with their twitter usernames on the front and "follow me" on the back! They both knew who I was, too, which was pretty awesome :)
Chatterbox and AskWifey come across as being very in the moment and present with you, making you feel so at ease with talking to them. The Blogrollers say of themselves that they "are all about taking the business and pleasure of blogging and social media to the streets in unique and entertaining ways."
The BlogRollers is a social media consulting firm with a corresponding blog that promotes the power of women bloggers and its impact on the economy and on social media. They offer social media advice, promote other blogs in their blogroll, and chronicle their collective adventures in hilarious and multimedia-filled ways. I'm going to enjoy getting to know them both better!
In addition to her work with The Blogrollers, http://askwifey.comChristie AKA Chatterbox is a wife, mother, life enrichment coach, an author, and a public speaker! From The Blogrollers About page: "She has a weekly internet radio talk show on BlogTalk Radio, The ChatterBox,which showcases fabulous bloggers and entrepreneurs as well as allows her to put her gift of gab to good use. She is a published author. Her first book, "Your Big Sister's Guide to Surviving College" debuted the Spring of 2007 and "A Book Is Born" (co-authored) was released in the Fall of that same year." Christie shares her personal journeys, observations, and insights with unmistakable flair, lots of italics and parentheses, and so very much sincerity on her personal blog "My Life - A Work In Progress". Chatterbox can also be found on twitter as @chatterboxcgc.
