I'm so in love with this Bright Ideas Linky I can hardly stand it! It motivates me to come up with extra, EXTRA meaningful content so that I can be "chin up" around my sooooooo amazing blogging peers.

I am planning to do more videos like this...if there's a topic you'd like me to demo in a future post, I'd LOVE to hear it!
