Finally BlogHer and NaBloPoMo have a monthly topic I think I can really get into. The topic for August is “Know”. There is a month’s worth of prompts having to do with what you know, what you don’t know, what you wish you knew. I am excited to get started and have already started working on my first post. Look out for what you need to KNOW, starting Monday!

I want to move here…
