It’s been a busy time here. Just getting around to some more updates. As I go through my lists I will be updating the blog pages (March, April, May, etc) as well as posting compilations.
If you are new to this blog, or newish, each post is an email blast that will go out to subscribers, but also be posted to facebook and twitter. In addition it is added to the pages that are listed by the month or under ongoing if it is an opportunity with a repeat or rolling deadline.
best of luck,
