Week in Review – Stretch Assignments, Book Review, Interesting Websites
I am repeating Sarah Arrow’s 30-Day Blogging Challenge. I am on Day 26, so I can see the finish line. The thing is this, if you never get in the game, how can you win? The game can mean anything that you want it to be, it doesn’t have to be about blogging. The game could be reading more books, then applying what you learn. If you want to read more, I would love it if you joined my Read the World Challenge.
