    In true fashion, my favorite of the list is the first (Copyblogger)! What I find interesting about this article is that:

    (1) he confirms what I preach that blogging cannot be cookie-cutter
    (2) he doesn’t necessarily give an answer, rather engages his audience to dialogue with him about it (how Liz of him!).
    (3) the comments are priceless!

    Great picks, Liz- I’ll take extra cheese on my nachos plxthx. :)

    Hey Lani!
    Feel free to help yourself to even more cheese if that’s not enough. Though I get pretty cheesy according to what I’ve heard. :)
