    Admiring the time and energy you put into your blog and detailed information you present. It’s nice to come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same unwanted rehashed information. Wonderful read! I’ve saved your site and I’m adding your RSS feeds to my Google account.

    Could it be okay to publish part of this on my website basically post a hyperlink back to this webpage?

    • Jodi Friedman, MCP Actions on May 4, 2011 at 9:44 am

      You are welcome to explain about textures and link to the post, but you may not publish large portions of the post on another blog. Thank you for asking.
