After reading my post last September, Free to Promote... 25 (on Net Neutrality), you could imagine my relief when the FCC approved the policy to protect Net Neutrality.  But this win is bittersweet.

Even though I still think that Net Neutrality is a win for small businesses, I have always had a little voice in the back saying "but it's more government control."  Nothing can ever be black and white and I still support the decision but I must keep a watchful eye.

I found two great articles for more information; One is NPR's reporting on the decision and the other actually opposes Net Neutrality with some very good and valid rational.  NPR - FCC Approves Net Neutrality Rules for 'Open Internet'  and Forbes - Am I The Only Techie Against Net Neutrality?

Flashback Thursday; Tropical Travels

Antique Map from Etsy shop:  VintageDecorPrints

While much of the US is snowed in and frozen, tropical travel is on many American's minds.  Can you imagine how it was in the early 1900's when they didn't have snow plows and snow blowers? American's have love to travel ever since the dawn of railroads, airplane and especially car.  Here's to the American tradition of travel:

At the Oscars

OK, so I wasn't "at" the Oscars last night but I stayed up past my bedtime to watch it And I was there last Sunday. Terry (my hubby) and I took a drive to Hollywood and caught all the preparation for the Grammys. Scaffolding and blocked roads may have irritated some but I love being able to share in the excitement of something that millions watch on TV.

We were even approached by someone doing interviews of people for their predictions on the winners. Unfortunately the hubby and I couldn't help him because we watch the Oscars to see what movies we should rent on Netflicks.

We spent the day visiting Madame Tussauds' Wax Museum and taking fun shots with the stars:

Networking 
I know that this is a strange comment coming from an very outgoing person but I find face to face networking a challenge.  I love promoting and marketing but networking is a different bird.

To many networking is just hanging out and visiting with others that have the same interest but that isn't networking.  That actually is friendship.  Networking has a goal and a plan on how you will reach your goal.  You are there to meet people that may be able to help you get to your goal.

Some of the guides that I just read to make networking more successful for you are:
  • Visit many sites, groups, blogs, teams that interest you
    • Pay attention to the vibe there and the type of people that it attracts and whether it is a good fit for you
  • Is your talent in quilting? or acrylics? then be a great and respected resource for information on these topics.
  • Know what you would like help with when you reach out.  Do you need advice on advertising, a good resource for supplies etc?
So while you are visiting and adding your sites; make sure you glance at those who also joined; you never know who you will meet and how they can help you achieve your goals.  There are so many amazing shops, blogs, etc. out there that really have a lot to offer.

Seen Dolphins and Grey Whales Breaching While Whale Watching on Valentine's Day


I hope everyone had a very wonderful Valentine's Day. My hubby surprised with the some beautiful flowers, earrings and Whale Watching at Davies' Locker in Newport Beach.

I am not fast enough with the camera to catch the whales but  we seen 2 grey whales and one of them breached 4 times (first time I have seen that up close.)  We also were able to catch several dolphins which I was able to take pictures of.  They were so close, right under the boat and right in front of us.  I love sharing these special moments with my hubby.  I am so blessed to be married to my best friend!
 
I would love to hear what fun adventure your honey took you on or what amazing gift he/she surprised you with.
