We challenged you to join us on a challenge to blog BETTER. To try HARDER. To aim for growth and strengthening and not settling for “just enough.” We want more than enough for ourselves and we have a pretty good idea that you guys do, too. Read the original post about the challenge here: reaching above & beyond, striving to be someone who STANDS OUT in such an awesome community of bloggers tackling the same subject from various points of view. Test your POV: is it unique? is it presented in a creative way? are you proving you are a blogstar? PROVE IT.
Anyone out there have a green thumb? We're looking for guest posters to share their summer gardening tips on our blog. Let us know!
