Say thank you.
Saying thank you takes 1 second but it makes a huge difference in someone's day and in their opinion on you.
For today I am going to thank EVERYONE who made this blog possible.
In all honestly I didn't think I was going to make it, I didn't think I was going to follow through. But people kept coming up to me and saying they read the blog, it makes their day or they did something nice for someone.
So here is your chance to see your name (first names only) on the internet on a quasi important blog and you can say "Hey that's me." Hopeful it will make your day too.
This is in a sort of order and if I forget you, I'm very sorry.
