There aren’t any food pictures in this post, but it’s chock-full of info about me and what’s been going on with me lately!
Make sure you comment on my post Better than Nutella? Deanocciola Organic Chocolate Hazelnut Creams to win a free jar! I’m accepting comments through this weekend!
Going to BlogHer 2008 Conference in San Francisco, July 18-20? I’ll be there (I’m volunteering!!) so I’d love to meet some readers and I especially hope to meet other bloggers that I’ve been reading for so long. Let me know if I should expect to see you! You can still register at the BlogHer 2008 Conference page and on my site there should be a few ads from BlogHer about winning free registration!
I conducted an impromptu video interview for Intruders TV (on Italy & UK sites) when I interviewed the co-founder of WordPress, Matt Mullenweg. I already know I talked too much (have pity, I’m a newbie), but it was a last-minute thing, so I can only get better. Thanks, Matt for your time!
There are so many blogs written by Expats in Italy, that I’ve made them their own page! Check out all the ones I’ve found (and most of which I’ve read) from all over Italy on the Expat Blogs in Italy page I created. I’m also starting a page called “Businesses by Expats in Italy” which will list some businesses being run by friends and internet friends throughout Italy. Contact me if you know I’m waiting for your info!
I’ve been using Twitter for more than a year, but I’ve noticed a lot of “normal” people opening accounts lately as it’s getting more mainstream! Here’s my Twitter feed: http://www.twitter.com/rosso and a quick page “Me and Twitter” that talks about how I am using Twitter and how I use it.
I recently Tweeted that I was in the May issue of Glamour in Italy – below is the box where I appear (it’s small, but it’s still me!) talking about my beloved e-books. Most of my Italian friends jokingly remark on the absolutely “typical American” gesture that I’m making with my hand. If you know Italian gestures, what does the one that I’m doing mean?
The pictures were taken at the Girl Geek Dinner in Italy at February, which I help organize, and we’ve got another tomorrow! If there aren’t any GGD in your area, why not think about organizing one? Check out GirlGeekDinners.com for more information!
And last but not least, I’ve given notice at my current job. Adventures to ensue, more information later. In the meantime, I welcome your comments, support, and even opportunities!
