Sorry about the photoblog this week, everyone, but I've been busier than a beaver building a dam on a lake made of coffee. (Speaking of which, I had a Soy Mocha Ice Storm at the Nordstrom eBar this weekend and it was awesome.)
I had a couple of writing deadlines this week, but more newsworthy is that I started a new job. Well, actually, longtime readers of Girl Friday will be happy to hear that I actually took back an old job: the visual merchandising gig I dropped almost two years ago. This is the job that sent me to at least four Twin Cities area malls every week, thereby allowing me to report regularly on all sorts of deals at retail stores. They made me an offer I couldn't refuse (better hourly wage and fewer stores to visit), plus I really did miss working with fashion trends.
Anyway, in addition to having more shopping related content here again, I'm thinking about also using my Twitter account for the purpose of informing followers about something other than what I'm having for dinner. In the vein of Jahna Peloquin's Style updates via 80108 texts, but more immediate and thrift-oriented.
When I was doing this job before, constantly spotting the best sales at virtually every retail spot, I always used to wish I had an instant way to inform my blog readers about them. But this was back when Twitter didn't exist. Now that it does, I think it's the perfect way for me to use the application.
Once I figure out how to put my Twitter badge on this blog, we'll really be in business.
