  1. Is Le Mot Juste available now and how do we get copies?


  2. This design is steller! You definitely know how to keep a
    reader entertained. Between your wit and your
    videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Wonderful job.
    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.
    Too cool!

  3. Hi there! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make
    your site mobile friendly? My website looks weird when viewing
    from my iphone. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be abloe to fix this problem.
    If you have any recommendations,please share.
    Thank you!
