For the last 14 weeks, I’ve been running a series on blogging. I’ve enjoyed interacting with everyone who’s commented: it’s been fun. I hope you’ve picked up some good ideas to make your blog better. I know I’ve reminded myself of a few things I need to work on.

I am honored; thank you!
Also, it was just confirmed that I will be speaking on this topic at the 2014 Breathe Conference this fall!
Peter, this has been an interesting series of posts. Each with ONE really valid point 🙂 Thank you. Small bites are definitely easier to digest than too much at once. I find myself breaking posts into part 2,3, however needed to cover a topic so I don’t overwhelm.
I appreciate your feedback and encouragement. I was concerned the series dragged on too long.
