I’m glad you are here to celebrate! Share a link to your blog post below and/or use #celebratelu to share celebrations on Twitter.

I made a promise to post this week and it was broken. Maybe this week’s celebration will explain the failure: Our internet is working again after being out all week!
Sheesh. What is it they say about the best laid plans?

  1. Wow-no internet for a week-sounds great, just different, right? Congratulations on giving the keynote, Ruth. I can't wait to be there, to see you, and now, hear you!

  2. I guess you had an unplugged week. It is sad to think how much of our lives revolves around the Internet. So looking forward to your keynote!

  3. A week without the internet. Yikes!
    So sad I can't make it to AllWrite this year. I'll be checking tweets and blog posts to hear all about it.

  4. No internet must have been strangely freeing in some ways too? I can imagine your keynote address will be amazing. Maybe you will share some of it here? After the Institute of course 🙂

  5. No Internet. Ick. I just had that this weekend sort of. There was free wi-fi in the lobby of my hotel, but not in rooms. There were not enough elevators for an Anime convention so getting to the lobby & back just for Internet wasn't quick or easy. I had blog posts to write, but I spent more time reading instead which was nice.i didn't get my post linked up though until today though. 😉
