The conversation ranged from how to ad links to our twitters, tagging, Facebook, Writing ideas, Blogging tips, Cookbooks and Video Ideas. Laurie Lufkin brought a selection of really wonderful desserts and I am sorry to say I did not get a photo of them. They were delicious, lemon Squares, gingersnaps, and apples squares were super YUM! I apologize for not getting the photo to document the dessert part of the wonderful meal. Everyone said this was the best Gloucester Gitterati meeting we have had yet, food was fabulous, and I for one feel refreshed with new social media ideas and support.

It is so great to have the company and friendship of other foodies and bloggers! Thanks to All
Happy Holidays,
Melissa
