"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.

Hello Carol - Happy Saturday!  It's interesting how we know Saturdays are a part of every week but some seem to appear quite by "accident" while others "deliberately" take place.

Hi Michael Jacobs 
All I know is since I started the Second Chance Saturday series over 4 years ago, Saturdays seem to roll around faster than ever. I guess deadlines do that.  LOL
