The T-21 Blog Hop - May 2014 - Advocacy Rewind

I'm not sure what's happened to May, but here we are at the 21st again.

This month, I'm going to try something a little different.  I know a lot of bloggers that consistently put out some great advocacy pieces, but there seems to always be that ONE article.  There is always that one piece that you were particularly proud of, that maybe nailed your point or defined what your blog was all about. Or maybe you felt it was a little better written than some of the others.

For May, I want to see that one (or two, or three) advocacy post(s) that you are fond of for one reason or another.  We all do some really good work... I think it's time we stood back and took stock of just how good some of it is.

Add your post(s) to the linky below by clicking the link and following the instructions.  If you need further instruction for adding a reciprocal link to your blog post, follow this link.

Set the wayback machine and let's go!
