And the winner is…

Welcome to my first blog post! I wanted to make my first post epic, so I delayed starting my blog until I had something worth writing about. Enter the #140 Characters Conference. I had an extra ticket, and was going to sell it, but after a few quick DMs with an awesome guy I met through twitter… Mr. @Chris_Eh_Young – he convinced me to do...
