Important May dates

Howa0294FifiSandWhat to tweet…what to blog…what to do…

You won’t lack for inspiration this month!  From the Mother’s Day and the Kentucky Derby, to the anniversaries of LinkedIn and WordPress, the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner and Cannes, content and engagement ideas for Facebook updates, blog posts, and tweets abound.
