    I keep thinking I need to do this. thanks for the reminder. I will get on it.

  • Kerrie, I LOVE Hootsuite! I’m on board with you all the way 🙂 The next great thing about Hootsuite… when you get your rhythm for promoting and curating, you can hand it off to someone else to do – super empowering!
