Now on to the Flashback!!!

Here are my two favorite posts from last week's Flashback Friday Link up.

Twitter Tips for Business - An Oldie offers good easy to follow tips on how to use Twitter.  is a great story of how Janeane met her husband.  I love hearing how people meet :-)

My flashback this week is Running Towards Joy... Slowly :-( .  It is about the challenges I felt when training for my first 5k.  Check it out and share your thoughts and experiences on running.

Now it is time for you to link up.  Here is how it works.  Pick out your link for Flashback Friday and add it below.  Link to any post you like of any theme you want.  Then post a link to your Flashback post on the Chasing Joy Facebook Page so more Joy Chasers can read it.  Use the hashtag #FlashbackFriday or #FBF on twitter to promote your Flashback posts. Then, make sure you check out AT LEAST TWO other flashback posts.  I suggest the two links before your post to make it easy.  If you link up early be sure to come back and checkout those who join the linky after you.   Please leave a comment below saying why you selected your Flashback post and what you thought about the other Flashback posts.

Give your old post new live via the power of the linky!!!
