  1. Thanks for the shout out, Robin! LOVE this idea … now to get reading! 😉

    Good morning Robin,

    Congratulations on the roundup series. I know how it is to read so much great content throughout the month and then you want to make sure your readers have read a good bit of it too. You just don’t want them to miss anything that you feel could really help them in some areas so why not share it more than just a tweet or a shout out on the social media platforms. That’s what I love about roundup posts.

    You have a great lineup here too and I certainly do appreciate the mention here. Happy to hear you included one of mine and I do hope that your audience will find it helpful if they haven’t read it already.

    Thank you for that and looks like I have plenty more reading to do.

    Enjoy your day and the rest of your week, thanks again.


    • Hi Adrienne,
      Thank you! I’m so glad to hear that you like this golden roundup. It is my absolute pleasure including your article! I know our audience is going to find it helpful.

      I hope that you had a fantastic weekend and start to your week!

      ~ Robin
