Meet the Carnies

Thank you to everyone who has followed my adventures this summer. The Carnie Chronicles have generated substantial interest. It was a pleasure and honor to work alongside these great and fascinating people, all of whom I consider friends. I’ve been gone only two days and already I miss them dearly. I hope they find these words I’ve written about them a faithful and accurate snapshot of their summer 2010.

Who’d have thunk that I’d love being a carnie?

Life is a carnival, indeed.

    Hi Kari,I’m really just learning how to use social media. I have a fan page on Facebook, as well as a Twitter feed. I’ve found the fan page more useful at this point, but I think that’s because I haven’t committed myself to Twitter yet. As such, very little referral traffic comes from it. I’ll be learning more in the coming months and will pass any tips along your way. What are you using?

    Wow. You have a way with people. These photos are great. You have a great eye for catching people in their natural state. I’m going to sign up for your feed. 🙂
