Every four years we get an extra day added to the end of February, and today is that special day. Some say we should do something different with the day since it's an extra gift of time. However, today really is just another Wednesday and we all have schedules to keep to, right?
First thing I did when I sat down at my computer this morning was to visit Facebook and hop on to a dear friend's page to wish her a Happy Birthday. I always remember that Diane was born on leap day and I noticed that many others remembered as well since she had lots of wishes. I celebrated a big birthday myself this week. I am now officially a 5 year old blogger. I wrote my first blog post on Donna's Promo Talk February 27, 2007, and have been at it since. Thanks again to my friend and founder of this blog, Yvonne DiVita, along with her business partner and now husband, Tom Collins, for helping me get started. Lip-sticking is older then my blog, so I guess some of us are now considered old timers in this business.
Part of my birthday celebration tradition is writing about the same brand that I choose to devote my first blog post about which is Dove. They're a great brand that I love and have been following their Real Beauty Campaign over the years and I continue to support them. So after I wished my friend Diane a Happy Leap Day Birthday this morning I then searched for Dove and pulled up their Facebook page. To my surprise I found that it was a great day to visit their page because Dove had just converted to the new Facebook Timeline. I had read that Facebook was planning to slowly roll out Timeline for businesses, but I hadn't see one yet.
