I am trying so hard to keep up with various blogs. There are many good ones, but I think I would spend my entire time at the PC if I did so. I have a list of bookmarks already and do not know when I will get to them...but then when I found you I was so who know what other gems are out there.

Good job, Hilary, and a wonderful service you're continuing. It allows us to meet new folks and continue to improve our perspectives. Brava.

Jo said...

There are so many wonderful blogs out there, and the one of best ones is

and people have not discovered it yet.

I'm finding that blogging has become a social network and that seems to detract a bit from the essence of blogging.

I will be interested to see what some of your future choices will be. You are very astute. Your blog should be included in your POTW. :-)

Congrats to everyone.
