I'm not sure why, but all my friends told me I had to, so I joined Facebook. I think it will be a great way to get the word out about what I'm doing - classes, appearances, etc. The only down-fall is that I can only check it out when I'm at a wifi hot spot. (It takes about 10 minutes for the home page to down-load on my dial-up connection.)
I'm also on Ravelry and it is the same situation - unless I'm at a Wifi place - the Town Hall, a cafe, the library - it is too difficult. My user name there is kristinnicholas (no space). I just uploaded the cover to my new book there if you would like to check it out. I also added the first cover that didn't get chosen.
Ah, technology.... Maybe I will figure it all out one day. As for today, out to the garden.
