The Blogging Community has become so universal these days, with many artists and business consultants choosing this form of communication as a vital marketing tool. The pay-off has far exceeded the initial goal of growing a home-based independent business, to long term friendships in faraway continents. These friendships have blossomed and have boosted the personal day to day lives of the solo blogger behind the computer screen... One of the many new and lovely friends I've met along my short journey thus far is Mitzi Curi of Mitzi's Collectibles in Michigan, who describes herself as "a one-woman enterprise with oodles of ideas and enthusiasm within her world of vintage collectibles and crafty treasures." Every week I am especially thrilled with Mitzi's post on Expanding Your Vintage Vocabulary, and the history surrounding these 'new-to-my-ear' words. It's a delight! I was thrilled when Mitzi agreed to share her tips on the friendships she's made through blogging and Facebook.
