Blogosphere Roundup, 3/11

Hey, y’all.

Can I just say how glad I am this week is over? It started with taking my kid to the ER for breathing trouble Sunday night…all to find out he has a virus. A virus that won’t go away and he’s still sitting here at home with me. And next week is Spring Break. Help me.

But, sick kiddos didn’t stop me from finding some more fun stuff to share this week. And remember, if you write a great post on blogging tips or any other aspect of blogging that would be of interest to B2B readers, feel free to submit it to me for possible inclusion here in the Roundup!
