MORE LESSONS LEARNED (by a slow learner)


One post I read, ( which talked about the blogging awards, made a lot of sense to me.  See if it clicks with you.

If I nominate 15 blogs, and each of those nominate 15 more, and so on, here is the progression:

Another item I have not dared try is “the new posting experience.”  Does anyone else use that feature?
