    Sounds like a plan!

  • Thank you all so much for these wonderful weeks! While I got a little behind due to sickness, I’m trying to catch up. You all inspire me! Hard to believe it’s already been a month. The lessons are awesome!

  • Last week?!??!?! WOW…it has gone by fast! So much amazing information and support…I cannot thank you all enough!!

    I’ve been trying to focus more time and attention on my blog. I’ve seen my stats begin to grow without trying to make an effort (nothing huge, but a bit of a jump…). Because of that I’ve been encouraged. I’d like to focus more attention on gaining subscribers and comments. I’m sure my SITS Girls can help me out with all of the wonderful tips and tricks they offer. I wish I would have started from the beginning, but I’m sure I can get the just of everything. Thanks. 😉

    I’m looking forward to reading this week! I especially appreciate the reminder about sending out a call to action. This is what I want when I read – so I should make sure to give it to my readers as well!

    I just happened upon this and I’m so excited to join the fun. I’m just getting back to blogging after being away for most of a year (pregnancy and first baby got in the way ;). I’ll have to go back and work through all of the weeks. Thanks so much for this resource.

    Wednesday sounds interesting. There are way too many social media sites right now! Focusing on just one might make a big difference. Thanks for the challenges and tips! At some point, I’ll have to come back and jump in. 🙂
