Looking for Volunteers

| June 12, 2013

I want to tell you right off the bat that this request for volunteers has nothing to do with writing. I actually need a few folks who are willing to track up to 7 days worth of food choices over a period of 2 weeks. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I’m back in […]

The last two weeks have been very busy for me and I haven’t been sending out my daily queries. Ideally, I’d like to have several queries in the hopper so when I get a rejection, I know I still have other queries in the system. Rejection Reminder After receiving a rejection for the one query […]
