RULES for VOTING: Anyone can vote as long as you’ve read ALL the stories for this week by 10 PM PDT, SUNDAY. Vote for your TOP 3 favorites. Winner announced on Monday! (With as many great stories as get submitted, I think we all need just a little more time to read them and vote!)

    1. Sadly, that does happen on occassion! What I try to do if I haven’t seen posts come through for people is at the end of the day I visit their blogs and twitters to see if I can find a post for the week! I try really hard not to miss any, but sadly, sometimes they fall through the cracks! I’m so glad you said something. I’ll add it right now. 🙂
