Blog Index, January 27- February 17

I’m just testing this idea out. I’m never sure what to report out, and tend to blog a lot. I know you can all look at my various blogs on your own, but I know I don’t have time to look at everyone’s blogs as much as I’d like to. I’m going to just try sharing my blogposts of the week in a Friday email. I’ll try to do this for a few weeks, and see how it goes. I think I’ll do two weeks of posts this first time, since I haven’t done it before.
