  1. I just want to say, this is such a great idea. I thought about joining in, but just had too many commitments.

    Part Time Monster is my sibling and social media partner – I found you because she liked this enough to write a post for it.

    This is an admin account for a blog I edit; you can find my personal gravatar at, my writing blog.
