Blogging Workshops Are Here!

Today I'm posting At the Well and I'd love to have you join me! Twenty years of marriage and it's Sweeter and Stronger --even though I fail many times.

There's also two book giveaways going on! One here at Patterings for Christa Allan's debut novel Walking on Broken Glass, and the other at Adding Zest for Sheila Wray Gregoire's book Honey, I Don't Have a Headache Tonight.

Also in the news today is Clearing the Blog Fog! Two workshops are now available to sign up for. Here's a quick run down:
