    The slideshow came out great! It’s nice to see everybody’s ideas together like this. Thanks for asking us to participate!

    Oh Liz, I love it! You’re the bestest slideshow maker ever. What a big job, being the most creative 25-word-putter-togetherer on the planet. And you DO make it look very breezelike (even though I know first-hand how much time and thought these kind of projects take, and breezelike isn’t the first word that comes to mind). But I’ve gotta say, you really did make this a connectifying project, because I feel more connected to these folks now (even the few I didn’t know before), being glued together in the lizaverse slideshow with them and all. :-) But, um, what happened to all of YOURS??

    Hi Amy,
    I made two new ones for this slideshow, just as I did for the last one. I don’t think I should muck up a beautiful project with too much “me” stuff. Folks can find plenty of that my blog. :)

    Thanks for the kudos. :)

    Finding your words very interesting. While spending a few mornings wandering around checking out the various blogs while sipping my fair trade coffee – it would appear we certainly have sparked an interest and volume of folks to get start making a difference..
