Not all blogs have to be about politics. But again, have a good balance of work and play.

Hey Mr. Palo,

I figured out that my blog URL is http://brigittesweblog.blogspot.com/ and I posted my Two-Column Web Journal there so that it wouldn't be late because I'm uber sick today.

Does that count as a blog post? :D
