Blogging Seinfeld Style - 05/11/07 04:22 PM
So as I work on trying to find "my voice" I read loads of blog entries on Active Rain and other sites. I keep working on posting information that I think the public should consider as in Zillow the Debate Continues and sometimes just because I care about it i.e. What I'm Passoniate About. However I'm wondering what is the point of the blogs that are just a list of links that take someone back to a person's website? The website also doesn't seem to contain any information about what the link title is either. Since we are a public site (unless marked Members Only) how does the consumer (3 comments)

Did you know that in 1984 President Reagan proclaimed the Friday before Mother's Day of each year to be Military Spouse Appreciation Day? The purpose of this special day is to thank military spouses for the support they give to their family and other military families, to honor their contributions to the communities where they live and to acknowledge the sacrifices they make every day in support of their military member and our country. Since the day doesn't have a rack of Hallmark cards it may be overlooked by many of you as a day to honor the sacrifices that military (3 comments)
