On a more technical note, related to blogging: as a reader, I have been using Bloglovin for a while. You just create profile, add the blogs you follow, and then you’ll get notifications (depending on your settings: instant, daily, etc.) when there’s a new post being published on of those blogs. Pretty nifty.
Edit: Gosh, I am so sorry for all the updates, I am just trying to claim this one on Bloglovin’. Not really working out, and I don’t know why – I think something’s trying to tell me to go do something else for a while …
