(Video) DE-Fi: What I've been working on while I've not been writing on THIS blog.

I've been very absent lately. I do apologize for that. I've had a lot of family things going on, as well as re-evaluating what I want to be doing with THIS space. I hope that you'll understand the lack of content and will stay with me - because good things ARE happening.

Let me give you an example.

DE-FI: Dayton Emerging Fashion Incubator
Last year I got involved with the fashion community here in Dayton. Yes, there is one. There's a lot of talent, desire, drive here but it is not necessarily being nurtured in a way that would get that talent ready for the big world. Caressa Brown, who is very passionate about helping people reach their goals in the fashion community, decided to start a new thing here in Dayton: An Incubator. 

What does that mean? We're going to be putting designers, models, makeup artists, photographers, writers etc. who want to get involved in the fashion industry by nurturing them through the process from beginning to end! You wouldn't believe the amount of support and talent we have helping this happen. It has the potential to be huge (and I think it will be).

You can check out this wonderful article on Dayton Most Metro by Caressa describing the new organization.

We've also had our first casting call - would you like to see a hint? Here it is!

My role for DE-FI is Director of Social Media, along with general volunteer. In that above video, though you do not see me, I was the one recording measurements (incorrectly - but we live and we learn).

So yes, I'll be handling a new blog, new Facebook page, new twitter, coordinating other bloggers and other contributors. I'm looking to make this whole thing as lightweight as possible (and Caressa wants me to continue Pretty in Dayton blog). Please understand if during this set-up process posts come slowing from me.

This is in addition to the million other hobbies I have.
