Welcome to Friday.

This morning, I must give a huge shout out to two of our subscribers, Kristal and Danica, for showing #ThePLUG some love on Twitter yesterday. We enjoy getting feedback from our readers and meeting new faces. Sherrell and I had a wonderful coffee date in Uptown as we discussed better ways to serve you with dynamic content and upcoming events.

I’m looking forward to meeting many of you next week at  #BLKTECHCLT. There’s still time to purchase tickets to next week’s event. Click here to reserve your spot.

UnPLUG this weekend.
