And that’s our Ten for Thursday listing, have a great day…


There’s twenty blogs referenced in this post?

Hold on, let me count.  One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, taking off my shoes and socks, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, eighteen, nineteen, twenty – well what do you know about that.

Yep, there’s twenty.

So why is it a “Twenty for Thursday” blog post?

Well, this week there were so many really great blog posts by the TU’s independent bloggers, that I couldn’t limit myself to selecting ten.  And even this week, I felt like I still left off a couple of really excellent pieces.

See, this is what happens.  I don’t want to leave anybody out, and I don’t want anybody to think that I’m not giving the TU’s community bloggers their due.

Next week we’ll be back to ten blog posts.

Unless we have a great week of blogging, where I feel that there’s room to expand the Thursday recap.

So have a great day, everybody!
