    Hi Nancy,

    Wow I think you have become my new hero. Every time I open twitter, I see a post from you and I wondered how you do it. I am a new Blogger, I launched in April this year and since, I have been learning about social media. One thing you have taught me is that regular posting keeps you on top.

    Thank you so much, I think you Rock
