A little help...

Hi everyone. Over the past year it has been a lot of fun putting this blog together. For the past few months, it has been my goal to post at least once a day, and for the most part, I have done it. This blog is 100% free, and it will always be free, but I could use some help. Although I am not taking donations, I have inserted some images on the right side of the blog that, when clicked, provide me some income. Currently I have added three such images, and will add more in the future. If you could click on each of the images, it would help. I am also planning on linking some Revver videos as well.

Again, thank you for all of the wonderful comments and positive feedback about the blog. I think you'll like what I have planned for this year.
