Week two of my blog and I am very much appreciating all the support and comments that have come my way. I will be closing the writing block poll today and be writing a post about it soon, though the number of votes doesn’t give me a huge amount of information to consider. Once again I’ve compiled a list of links to my posts and to posts I’ve read during the week that I thought were really helpful, really interest, really fun or a bit of all three. Feel free to recommed other posts that should be included.
