I hope you check out Janean's showcase of friends and leave her your comments and input. See you in the Rain!
I love this Contest and I am having fun with it. I always start out a bit slow and build as the Contest comes to an end. The 2012 Big Jump Start Back to Basics Blog Challenge has been a big boost to my learning on a new level here in the RAIN. Yeah Learning! So one of the tasks for the Contest is to write about Inviting People which I have written one post on the only person that is somewhat active and so since there are not any others, I am choosing to put that ActiveRain Spotlight on a Group of Bloggers here in the RAIN.
They are a regular featured event for me as I visit and learn new things on their blogs. So join me in celebrating some great blogs and truly sweet and gracious people that make the RAIN a special place. If you do not subscribe to their blogs, you will want to do so. What a rich place we have here and how fortunate are we to have great marketing and branding by these fine bloggers to learn by.
