    1. Thanks for including my LinkedIn post Alli!  I think bloggers can get a lot out of that network, but many don’t think about it.

    2. I appreciate the inclusion, Alli. Good company in this post. :)

      I knew about Lewis Howe.  I am glad to now know about the others.  I’m amazed by what they have to say about linkedin.  Especially what can be done free on the platform.  I’ve learned more about linkedin in the last 2 months than I did for the previous 4 years.
