        You’re welcome. But it’s OK not to thank me each time. I know you appreciate re-blog’s. I am grateful for all the information you post for writers. Re-blogging your challenges, contests, and opportunities is my way of thanking you. I know of at least two readers of my blog who contributed to your challenges from my re-blog’s, and I am delighted that I have been a vehicle to connect them to your site. Thank you for your inspiration and sharing of information!
