        1. At one time I had a blog referral along side, too. But so many quit blogging or not keeping their site up to date that i omitted it. If you collect a link page, it’s very helpful for us all.😂

            1. That sounds ahhhmazing! My philosophy is do what you think at the time you believe you should.
              So, when you are ready, and not a moment before, do it. The universe will receive it with open arms 😉
