Blogdom June 2014- Vacation

BlogdomOh boy, do I have loads to share from my Blogdom (my personal realm of the Blogosphere)!

You may want to bookmark this and come back to it a few times. Good stuff here

****

So, this is a bit out of the ordinary considering that it’s not a Wednesday. I left my regular blog posting schedule behind to enjoy a much needed vacation, but then suddenly remembered that I’d forgotten about a bunch links I’d wanted to share. This list is a bit short and not exactly up to date, but I thought it was still worth sharing. I hope you enjoy it.
