What happened to ageout.org?

First of all I want to provide an update on ageout.org, the nonprofit organization that I wrote a business plan for last year. I really thought it was such a great idea; it was hard to believe that no one else had thought of it! Well, they had. I found that a non-profit organization in Oregon was already performing this service and doing a great job of it. www.fosterclub.com - A great cause, helping teens who age out of foster care, find internships, education assistance and support.

Please support them if you are so inclined.This is a social network for teens who are aging out of foster care with a directory of opportunities for them and a network of supportive adults.

Be sure and follow the link to find out the incredible journey this awesome teen is on: Meet me half way

Reiki in Michigan

According to Google Analytics, Fridays are my best days for visitors although Wednesdays are a close runner up. Most people have me saved as a favorite or set up for an RSS feed and come directly to the site. They also come from blogger.com, Google and Bing searches, Transition Michigan, Wayne State University, Yahoo, Face book and LinkedIn! Yikes!

Most searches that bring people to this site are related to Reiki and I’m finding that Reiki is growing in popularity in the local area as well. Increased awareness is great, and isn’t that one of the greatest gifts we receive from all this Internet stuff? I’m sorry the newspapers had to die out as a consequence, but newspapers had to be so limited in their coverage even though they were frequently the only source of information to the general population. With the Internet we are unlimited in scope and depth.

I guess I better get going on this scope and depth of Reiki … I don’t know what to say, I wasn’t expecting this to be so popular, but I’m loving it.
