Welcome to the first AREAVOICES DIGEST!
Every week in the digest, I’ll be telling you about the newest additions to the Areavoices community. I’ll tell you more about their blogs and where to find them. I’ll also be giving you updates on some of our most popular blogs and uncover some hidden gems on areavoices – blogs that you might have never seen, but warrant your attention. So in no particular order here are today’s digest features:
