But strangely, I don't want to not post something here. I think part of it is that I've been watching Russ Beattie's Blog and it's been a bit disheartening. Russ is a...

I don't, on refelction, have a problem with that. What I do have a problem with is how they are charging. They're giving limits to the number of authors and blogs you...
