    It would take me a day to re-read all of these, but I estimate I probably did read80% of the original postings.

    Love your thoughts, ideas and insights

    Thank you Sally for such a complete list. I’ve bookmarked to read as time and preference allow. Happy New Year!

    Love this run-down of your best articles. Skimming the list I realize I need to check out and re-read several of them. Happy 2012 – hope it’s a great year for you and all your ventures. – Katy

    My two yearold daughter is reading the blogs right now with me, and on your photo she wanted to know who this lady is, and to tell her that all the colors are pretty. So here you go! Out of the mouth of babes

      What a sweetie! Thank you for keeping me on your reading list, and please hug your daughter for me. 😉

    Wow, you’ve given us a lot to think about – what great resources! Thank you and Happy New Year!

    So impressive when you see it all listed like that! So many people think Blogs are fluff but just the list makes it clear how hardworking you are. And that’s just a list! Without reading all the articles!
    So, when are you turning this into a book? Many others have done so with a lot less content. I’d buy it. For me and for others.

    Wow, I can’t remember when I started reading your blog (I read it daily now that I am ‘hooked”) but since some of these topics don’t sound familiar I am thinking I started some time during 2011. I am definitely going to read or re-read those that sound so interesting. So many to read and so little time!! Thanks Sally and happy new year!
