Hello from NYChar!

Yes, I did it! I started a blog!

NYColor is Life has taken on new life, starting as a Google Group, on to a Google Site, and now a Google blog. Anything else I'm missing, Google?

I've been trying to find the best way to share events and freebies with people, and I think having this blog along with the website will make it easier and more efficient. Upcoming events, freebies, and deals will still come your way, no change! This will help us remember these great times later, too: ).

Thanks for coming along for the adventure!

Here's a quick photo recap of the past events since NYColor first started:
