Halo Secretarial’s Home Office Update

Halo Secretarial’s Home Office Update

I ended 2011 by redesigning Halo Secretarial’s website. I think the new look is fresh and a little more visual. Hopefully you like it too!

Finally Friday

Well, I’ve done it! One week down with a post each and every day for Blawger Survivor. And that means I made it even longer than the host of the contest, lol. So far it has been a great reminder of how useful and interesting blogging can be. And I have read some wonderful posts from the other entrants in the contest. A couple of my faves: The Haiku post at Leadership, Women, Lawyers (short and sweet) Orientate Me at No Reins Girl (love...
