Put your contest entries on FB

To ease your entry in our contest 15 Weeks to Step Up Your Speaking, you can now post your entry video on the Eloquent Woman Facebook page -- we have more than 300 fans there, and Facebook makes it easy to upload video. Don't forget, we need your entry video and short entry statement no later than midnight, July 31, 2009. Got a question? Send them to me at info[at]dontgetcaught[dot]biz or post them here or on Facebook. I'm looking forward to seeing your top 3 priorities for stepping up your speaking skills!

Amazon Kindles: new lower price

Amazon's Kindle e-book reader just lowered its price to $299. I use the Kindle for speaking engagements where I don't want to be shuffling paper, or for times when I'm giving lots of prepared speeches, since it can store documents I send to the device. With features like adjustable type size and now even a read-out-loud function so you can hear what your speech sounds like, it may make the difference in your next speech, whether you use it to prepare or in your actual delivery. Check out my previous reviews below--and let me know in the comments if you've tried a Kindle as a speaking tool.
