Did you get the message? SOUTHWEST AIRLINES Passengers can send FREE INSTANT MESSAGES via iMessage and WhatsApp as long as they download the apps before the flight. (Delta, Alaska, and United Airlines already have some form of free messaging option.) More

As a Social Media Manager or Small Business Owner, what is one of YOUR biggest pain points? Could it be the blogging process? You KNOW you need blogs for improved SEO on Google, but researching, writing, revising to include keywords, and then editing are very time-consuming tasks. Especially if it takes you THREE HOURS to write the first paragraph!

On the other hand, I can write three paragraphs just getting out of bed. Make better use of your time and tap into my over 40 years of experience as a reporter, editor, and free-lance community writer to generate your creative content. – Anthony Scialis, Managing Editor, SoMe Slice
