This month marks one year—wow time goes by fast– since I started and sometime yesterday (May 6), I had my 50,000th visit.

This blog marks my 77th article on here. And I just wanted to take a second and thank every one who subscribes or regularly reads my blog and also thank those who just visit once. SO – THANK YOU. I have greatly enjoyed all of your comments along the way and look forward to your continued comments and suggestions. Starting this blog has proved more amazing than I ever thought possible. If you don’t have a blog, I encourage you to start one. You’ll always have plenty of ideas to blog about, and the opportunities that will come your way and the people you meet, will make it more than worth it.
