BLOGGING CHALLENGE ENTRIES FROM THE PREVIOUS WEEK: David and I are both eligible for the FAIL blog as we both failed to accomplish the challenge. The bar was set pretty high but this week, the bar is even higher. (Be sure to thank David for that!)

BLOGGING CHALLENGE – Might be difficult with the way things are currently, but good bloggers are like great debaters. They should be able to take any side of an issue and see things from all angles. So this week, I’d like to see people post, in a positive way, about the economy making sure to integrate it into your normal topic.

The blogging challenge is provided as a means of challenging yourself with a specific duty each week. David and I will be participating in each challenge and will be highlighting various entries from the previous challenge. To have your entry viewed by David and I, leave a comment with a link to your entry on this blog post. You may be the entry we review on the next episode.
