Don’t want to leave you hanging…
I’ll admit I could have been better prepared for the craziness that was bound to occur with all of these things gong on. And again, I want to apologize for getting behind. I do have some new posts in the works and I am lining up a few guest blogs in the coming weeks. I would like to point you to a few places that may tide you over if you’re missing new posts right now…
Visit the archives: If you’re new to the blog, you may have missed some posts along the way. On this page, you can view look through posts by category, by month, and see a list of the last 50 posts. Also, on the home page, are links to DA’s top (most viewed) posts, and a handy little search box (at the top) to find items by keyword.
A collection of great posts: I read a lot of awesome dance blogs and even if I’m just skimming through my Google Reader, if I find an interesting post, I usually share it. This is a handy little extra that Google Reader provides. All of my shared items can be found on its own little website, right here. (Please excuse the sea creature theme, GR is limited in its choices for design at the moment!) The best part is that you can even subscribe to a feed of these items, using your feed aggregator of choice (click here if you want to know more about the benefits of feed reading, and how to get started).
Follow me on Twitter: Even when I’m not writing much, I usually have a bit of time for Twitter. Why? ‘Cause everything I write must be 140 characters or less! Twitter is called a micro-blogging platform because people write, share, and converse in short bursts. And, when limited to 140 characters, people get to the heart of the matter. Following means that you will be able to see my little updates, write your own, and message me directly. There is a learning curve, but it is a fun way to meet, find, and eavesdrop on lots of people and conversations. You can get top news stories, see what others say about your favorite shows or topics, ask the opinions of others, and even follow a celebrity or two! Still not sure?

Fan DA on Facebook: OK, not quite ready for Twitter? Become a fan at facebook. Since you’re already there, it is an easy way to check up on what’s going on with the me and the blog without having to go to an extra site. I mean, you ARE on facebook, aren’t you? 🙂
