Thank you, in advance, for SHARING the article (s) with your outlets. Our writers do not get paid for their submissions, so being able to reach as many readers as possible, helps each writer to build an audience.

We are also socially available and on the site, you will find links to OUR social media presences. Pinterest, You Tube, Twitter and Facebook, so let’s be friends there and stay in the loops.
