Thought we'd start doing some blog-abouts, things you may have missed and might want to blog about. We're going to try and find articles and news that are brand new or not getting a lot of attention. We'll be doing them on the Read My Lipstick Network blog and the Completely Conservative Network blog. We won't double post, so there will be different topics on Completely Conservative. Let us know if you find our blogabouts helpful. Send us a blog post where you've used one of our blogabout topics and we'll highlight your blog on here with credit, links, etc., etc.

Here are today's:
