#AskAngel is back!
Ask Angelique Anything!
New day! Two chats!

Two years ago I founded the #AskAngel Twitter chat. Once a week at mid-day people asked me questions about anything and everything! After a hiatus during the summer of 2014, #AskAngel is back, and now we’re in the evening, too!

Our new day: Monday!
Our new times: Noon Eastern and 10pm Eastern

Here are some of the topics we discuss:

Social Media
Graphic Design
Chemical-free Living
Gluten-free Cooking and Dining
Our Personal Hobbies and Interests


(Note: I do not guarantee the veracity of “anything else” answers! ;)

We can be serious; we can be silly. Whatever mood you’re in, join us!

If you’d like email or text reminders for the the chats, email me at If you’d like text reminders (US only) please tell me the name of your cell service provider.
