  The day before Thanksgiving, I found via a Facebook shout out, a blog post by Jennifer P. Williams, whom I had never heard of before. 100 Things I Love.

Bloggers Who Need to Blog Again

  Why is it the ones who blog every week (or sometimes three times per week) aren't the ones you really want to blog in the first place?
