There is so much technology out there the trick is to not get overwhelemed by all if it (I do) and to not get sucked in to thinking you have to use everything that is available and finding what works best for you. I can't do everything, it stresses me out. The tech challenge this month was a great one for sharing ideas though.-Kasey

Technology was part of high school and college for me, so I've grown up with it, yet remember pre-Internet and pre-mobile phone life too.

I'm having a crack at @Jonathan Denwood 's Mail-Right - Facebook Advertising & Keep In Touch services this year, I'm putting in a dedicated 3 months to evaluate the results and de-mystify the whole FaceBook advertising.

I'm also using Facebook Live now successfully, crazy audience numbers on some posts.
