  1. Thank You for sharin. g this. I have always wondered what it took. My husband keep telling me that as much as I coupon and follow bloggers and share stuff with family, old friends and all the new ones I make daily, That I should start a blog! I am a bit of a social butterfly. I have scared my self away from it because I am really great to a point on the computer. I am afraid I will not list stuff or be able to make heads or tales when starting a blog. You have really opened my eyes to further look into this! I want to thank you for that!
