So, my challenge is to give all of you a little face time. I'm going to try and vlog or video blog once a week for 9 weeks. The challenge to you though is coming up with things you want me to talk about! Leave me a comment, send me an email, or just let me know when you see me! If I don't get any suggestions, then I'll have to come up with things all on my own and you may very well end up with me reading children's books, which might not be such a bad idea after all! My first one will be some time next week, so get your ideas in to me soon!
