Well, only Three Months to go! The campaign has been long and hard but I know you will agree with me that it was/is worth it! There have been so many great ideas and thoughts that have come out of the ME Blogger folks over the last 9 months that it would be almost impossible to write them down…but we did and for all the world to read and see!!! :)
Any ME Blogger (or any serious blogger) will tell you that the act of actively blogging has changed their thought process, made them better at what they do, and has expanded their communicational sphere (Think Global here… and don’t forget local as well :) ).
