Penny Thots started on April 1, 2012 with the idea that multiple voices and authors from a wide range of backgrounds could provide a much broader experience and allow readers to find information that would be applicable to their particular situation and therefore be of benefit to them.
It also started as a unique partnership between myself, primarily functioning as an editor, and the authors. I think the partnership has worked well and been beneficial to all involved. I know that I have learned quite a bit from reading each and every article. I hope you have as well. I also hope that you have been able to identify an author or two that you especially enjoy and been able to follow their blog in addition to this one.
So on this last day of 2012, I would like to review….
