Just in case you were wondering…..
…..I’m a talker.
I talk in an outside voice.
I talk when I should be quiet.
I talk with waving hands and giggles and raised eyebrows and extra excitement.
There are times when I try not too talk to much because I know that I’ve used up my talking quota in a conversation and I sit on my hands and bite my lip and try to think about something not too exciting like sweeping snow off the front porch to distract myself…..
…but sometimes despite my best efforts the talking comes out anyway.
And now I want to talk with you. 🙂
Have you ever heard of a forum before?
Remember the one house on the block that had a room over the garage with a pool table and a television with cable and a refrigerator with diet cokes and an entire cabinet full of Cheetos and Oreos…..and after school everyone would hang out there and laugh and talk and stop by whenever they had something to share.
A forum is a lot like that.
Except the Cheetos are now organic fruits and vegetables.
It’s a place where you can ask questions about decorating or blogging or talk about how amazing Shirley Temple was or that Yolanda from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is selling her house for 27.5 million dollars.
Or that her refrigerator has its own Twitter account.
Can you see why we need to talk?
To get started…..just click here.
Then just click the sign in button at the top of the screen.
In the future if you ever want to visit again….I put a button on the side bar.
A button will pop up that looks like this.
To open an account….just click create one at the bottom of the pop-up and create an account.
If you already have an account you can just sign in.
After you have set up your account and read the community guidelines…..
…..stop by and introduce yourself.
Then you can comment on any of the open discussions.
Or share something wonderful.
Or ask a paint question.
Or open a new discussion on something you really want to talk about.
Trish is helping to moderate the forum, too….so be sure and let her know if you have any questions.
About 8:00am CST I’ll grab a cup of coffee and join you over there for some fun.
Janel has set up a couple of tutorials to help you navigate the forum.
You can find them under the discussion section.
I am so excited to get to know all of you a little better….
….and to find out if anyone likes to talk as much as I do. 🙂
I’ll be there with my amazing earrings…..
….and a big opinion on refrigerators with Twitter accounts. 🙂
