Catch the Muse...

I stopped by Donna McDine's blog to leave a comment and I'm glad I did. Her recent post reminded me that the deadline is fast approaching for anyone wanting to attend the 2008 Muse Online Conference.

I've already registered, but I don't want you to miss out! If you plan on attending the free online Muse conference, you MUST register BEFORE September 1, 2008.

Lea Schizas was very clear in her announcement regarding registration: "In the past I've been lenient and accepted late registrations. This year the deadline will be kept..."

So if you're planning to attend, get to the website ASAP and register before September 1st!

See ya there.
