Greetings from WordCamp San Francisco, ladies. I’ve had about eight cups of coffee (it was free), and I’m feelin’ WHEE! Has your coffee or tea kicked in yet?
WordCamp is a one-day conference for people who use the software I use for Makeup and Beauty Blog. They talk about plugins, which are little programs that add new features; security; search engine optimization and then load you up on swag like buttons and stickers.
I’ve got my laptop here in the conference room. Weird… I’m actually using WordPress at WordCamp.
How are things with you? The surf patrol reports some nice breaks. Care to catch a few waves with me?

Do you know the words to this song?
Hope your weekend got off to a good start. I just got a text from Tabs… He said to be sure to tell everyone “hi.”
