Social Media Sunday: Hot Picks and Cool Reads


YES…I know its been FOREVER since I’ve done my Social Media Sunday round-ups. The bottom line is that, despite the fact that this feature of Franticmommy has always been a great traffic driver, I have been woefully BEHIND on everything! My business is hella-busy (which is a good thing 🙂 and it’s been all I can do to keep up with client work and magazine assignments.

I’m in heaven, but Franticmommy has been pretty neglected. I’ve showed up whenever possible and even managed to bang out posts that I am truly proud of like this one, but overall I need to clone myself or carve outside time for ME blogging.

SO, luckily all the killer social media information I have discovered this week and inspired me to dust off Social Media Sunday and share this amazing information with all of you. Here’s a few:
