  2. Hi Kelly,
    I’ve just read this post, “Money for nothing…” and you are so right. We need to just keep our eye on our own work, and our own prize, and not worry what others are doing, or not.
    Thank you for following my blog, With Humour and Hope. I’ve been doing a lot of other writing lately and haven’t had the energy to keep up with the blog. That will change. I feel the “fires” burning.
    Cheers,
    Christine
