Leaving the Blog open...

I'm glad to see that you guys like the idea of continuing with the blog! I know that in the settings we can add a list of email addresses that get emailed anytime there is a new post. I'll see what the other options are as well.

I'll leave the blog open and all of you listed as authors for now, and if anyone wants to be added as an administrator, that's easy to do as well!

I would like to let you guys know that I love to learn from you and I love to share whatever I know and I feel to you. Therefore, I am for KEEPING ON GOING!!

However, where shall we move next?? Any genius got any idea? Shall we have a new blog only belonging to us?? Anyway, I am looking forward to our new world together spiritually. Haha....

Concerning my previous post

I'm glad so many of you are interested in keeping in touch and keeping this going! Does anyone know how to get blogger to send you emails when someone posts or comments on a post? It would be nice to have reminders sent to our inboxes.
