I think my story is a little unique since I fell into completely by accident. I had no desire really to do anything with it for international education and was actually taking a teaching with technology course; however, I wasn't teaching at the time but, I had plenty of study abroad students I could put to good use. I started with blogs and they were so successful that this progressed to Facebook and Twitter and it has literally exploded from there.
This wasn't even something I was planning on making a side business out of to be quite honest but as I keep trying out more and more things (I am more of a hands-on type of person) the more people came to me with questions. That has resulted in what is now Mandy's Mashups.
More posts coming soon. I have a whole series of exciting guest posts coming your way!! Stay Tuned!!
