Oops. Finally got around to updating my LinkedIn profile today. Thinking it might help with spreading the word about my photography along with the newest venture - computer training for those who are computerphobic.
The oops part came when I first logged in - I've had a profile for a while now, just never did anything with it. Of course it reflected old information, including my place of employment. After logging in, it led me through sending emails to all contacts in my gmail account. Click happy person that I am, I gave permission (along with my password :O ) and instantly emails went to everyone in my gmail address book asking them to connect with Lynn Welles, Marketing Assistant with Prudential Carolinas Realty. And several people on the list were in the office I used to work in. Hmmmmm. I wonder if everyone did a double take and wondered what was going on.
No worries - my information is now up to date and correct. If you are reading this and received a recent invite from me and wondered what the heck was going on, now you know.
And that's the rest of the story.
