Fabulous resource guide! Thanks for sharing it. Do you mind if I share it on my blog also? Thanks a ton for your continued support. Hope to hug you in person someday.

Kimberly, you're welcome to share anything on the blog - I also just discovered that Blogger now has a button that makes it easy for viewers to share. I just added it (its at the end of each post) so try it out or just cut and paste.

Kimberly, I also just discovered that there is now a "Share" link in the blog NavBar - that's the toolbar at the top of the blog where you can "Search" or "Go to the next blog".
