This week’s reading list is a little smaller than normal. Several bloggers I regularly read have been somewhat quiet the last seven days. It could be spring break time for many or perhaps a sign of busy writers. I’ve been keeping my mind—and fingers—busy with several projects this week, including website copy, an email campaign and several bios. Although this year didn’t start out the way I wanted, it’s definitely picking up. I still have high hopes for 2010.
On with the reading!
