First Blog Post Evah! Connecting With Our Inner Blogger

After years of procrastinating, we will attempt this blog thing.  I will try to post regularly, to entertain you with my rapier wit, and to do whatever else may be necessary to blogify Sense of Wonder.   Within reason.  Yes, it is about time we joined the blog club.  Hopefully, this will keep you updated about cool new stuff we have in our stores,  special events, gift-buying tips, and probably more information about us than you really want to know.  I’m told blogging is like keeping a business diary.  For the whole world potentially to read.  With pictures.  Yikes. So much for the lock and key and the hiding place under my bed.  It will not surprise you to learn that, for the most part, the “I” blogger here is Jean Smith a/k/a “Mrs. Wonder.”  The chances of Mr. Wonder blogging? Slim to none.  So, must I promise to behave?

    It *is* a little long for a business card, but it sure is accurate! Congrats on all the updates, the new store, everything. Can’t wait to drag you out for coffee (if you need caffeine) or wine (if you need to chill)!

    I’m looking forward to having you back in Reading. Given my office is upstairs from your new location, my husband isn’t quite as excited. See you soon. Judy
