    1. Yes, I am going to leave myself a reminder to do so. I did, however, clean up my boards and got rid of the too many that I had with only a few pins in them.

      Hope you are enjoying the weekend.

  1. Never knew about the social sharing site promo Republic. I render on Amazon Alexa United States traffic rank and are doing very well in search engines and getting steady streams of organic traffic. Perhaps I’ll do a little bit more research on the company momentarily and put something on the website about them. Thank you for mentioning them. 🙂

    1. Woohooo…congratulations on the Google ranking! I started using Promo Republic because it provides a lot of content which is always helpful when my brain won’t work!
