      Thanks Miss T. I have a pretty good system in place (If you ask me. 🙂 ) If you know of anyone who is interested in hiring someone to submit to carnivals, you can send them my way.

      Of course! It’s a great giveaway. I love the idea of charity giving. Once I get a steady income from my blog, I will seriously consider this angle.
