Last week, I invited businesses and groups within our community to reply to my blog with all their special deals, treats and unique services for their customers during this wonderful holiday season. Well, there were so many responses that our computers crashed at Seaside Times. No, seriously, the truth is – we received ONE reply! Oh well, I guess the “blog thing” is still new and uncomfortable to many people. It even took me a while to learn that blogging is one of the most unbelievably powerful tools around to connect with people locally and around the globe. Blogging is one of the best ways to tell the world about your gifts, talents and projects that will transform our community. Blogs are also catalysts for good in this world. Remember Peggy Mahoney and her son? Last May, I wrote about their desperate plight to get community support with the extra expenses resulting from a life-or-death decision.
