Day 6 of the March SOLSC! #SOL15

Write, Share, Give
Write, Share, Give


It is day six of our 31-day writing challenge. Try as I might, I have not gotten around to everyone’s blogs yet.  I had high hopes of reading and commenting on everyone Slicer’s blog by the end of day five. Unfortunately, neuropathy set in and I had to scale back to just 15 comments yesterday.  (For those of you who are new Slicers, this isn’t a new problem. I’ve had issues with my arms and hands for the past year or so. The issue is exacerbated whenever I spend long periods of time at the computer.)  So far, I’ve commented on 153/362 registered participants. For those of you I haven’t reached yet, please accept my apologies! I hope to reach you soon.

Speaking of numbers, we have 168 NEW SLICERS registered for this year’s Challenge.  WHOA!  Many thanks to Robin Sheldon who is coordinating our Welcome Wagon.  A BIG THANK YOU to the members of the Welcome Wagon who have committed to welcoming new Slicers daily this month.  The members of the Welcome Wagon are: Bev Baird, Ramona Behnke, Carrie Cahill, LeAnn Carpenter (Elsie), Katy Collins, Elisabeth Ellington, Anita Ferreri, Maureen Ingram, Erin Johnson, Julie Johnson, Bonnie Kaplan, Kim Koehler, Kristi Lonheim, Jone MacCulloch, Kimberley Moran, Mindi Rench, Jennifer Sniadecki, Angela Stockman, Jessica Touhy, Melissa Vervinck, Amanda Villagomez, Adrienne Wiley, Carol Wilcox, and Rissa Zimmerman.

    • Debbussewitz, I tried to comment on your writing– I loved it. I’m having trouble getting anything to post to blogger sites. If you enable the option for someone to post with their name and website, I have been able to post to those blogs. Just a thought….
