"Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."
-Carol Williams   

Does getting Featured here in The Rain sometimes feel like a roll of the dice? Not anymore. I'm always open to member suggestions on posts that should be Featured but somehow got missed. 

Giving deserving posts more exposure is what Second Chance Saturday is all about.  As you read blog posts during the week, be sure to TAG ME in the comment section of any post you wish to nominate as Feature-worthy.  Then watch for it in the next edition of Second Chance Saturday.

These posts that feature those that do not get featured by the powers that be at ActiveRain are wonderful, especially for people like me that never get featured by ActiveRain, haha.

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS 
Ironic you say that because I mentioned to Anna above that I've come to believe the week's go by faster when you write a weekly series. Maybe time would slow a bit if I quit writing the SCS series.  LOL
