On the Eve of Blog Blast

Posted: Thursday, November 03, 2011 by Travis Cody in

I did it last year, and I've done it again this year.  I'll do it again next year and that makes it a tradition and part of Blog Blast.  So yeah, I made a graphic for it.

I've been counting down the days to this year's Blog Blast for Peace with peace quotes.  Here is a recap of the quotes I chose.

I hope to see all of your fantastic Peace Globes and read your thoughtful words about Peace.
