Today I have the honor to host the wonderful… the amazing… the spectacular Best of the ‘Betes Blogs! I’m very grateful that Sara decided to bring me in because I had a lot of fun reading the different blog posts that were nominated. I have to be honest here… I really don’t read that many blogs these days, but this was a reminder of what I’m missing. Blame it on Google that’s taking their reader away today. 😛 Without further ado, here is the Best of the ‘Betes.
