Weekend OD #1

This was an exciting week filled with firsts. One of those firsts is this post right here. The “Weekend OD” will provide you with a summary of all the posts I completed in the past week. It’s a great way for those of you who want, to quickly scan what was new from the past week. I had a lot of fun putting all this together for you guys and as always I welcome any feedback you might have. Did you really enjoy a particular post? Is there something I should stop doing? I would love to here what you think so I can keep giving you what you want. Leave a comment below or find me on Twitter.
