    I can’t wait to be a part of my first Blog the Change…..the challenge for me is to narrow down my list of ideas to one, and then put it in motion (or give it a little kick in the ass to get it moving again!!)

    But Jenks & I definitely have a bigger idea in the works for launching on the next #BtC date (Jan. 15th)….

    Thanks for all you do!

    I’m in, but does it have to be Friday? I don’t post on Fridays. (Thursdays and Saturdays)

      Hi Jana! Absolutely you can post on Thursday or Saturday to keep to your normal blogging schedule. If you post on Thursday, just remember to come over here on Friday to include it in the Linky list. If you decide to run the post on Saturday, just include it in the Linky when it goes live.

      Thanks for participating!
