    Lynette–I am a blogger age 65 who writes (since last July 4, 2010). I am also a published writer whose work has appeared under the name colleen kelly mellor as well as Biddy Bytes. I am contacting you because I am looking for someone in this area (I live in Weaverville) who can help me bring my blog to next level. Specifically, I am looking for someone who can help me add social connection icons (I use WordPress and I know it’s relatively simple, but I don’t know how to do, so I don’t). In addition, I want to connect up all my posts with Twitter and whatever. In other words, I want to Tweet away and do whatever else you younger folks do to get your work or your voice “out there.”

    I volunteer at prison in Rhode Island, teaching women to write; I have done so here at jail in Asheville and may begin program this winter for other women who are at risk. I am wondering if you know WordPress (common blog host–Joy Behar has it among many) and if you’d be interested…

    Let me know if you do this type of thing…I see that you list computer skills, so I am wondering it there’s possibility of our working together.
