Many asked how I love to read and why I love to read them. Here ya go!
Blue Cereal Education- This dude. He was one of the first to actually believe in the power of this blog. He likes to keep everyone informed, and he does it with a lot of snark. Plus he gave me an #11FF mug.
But wait there's more....check out his legit page.
