We always know that we can count on Yvonne at Welcome to My World of Poetry for promotion and she's done it again with another poetic plug.

So let's give these bloggers another round of applause for their dedication. Anyone participating in the Challenge can always feel free to do their own Thank You posts--I'm sure won't hear any complaints from any of us if you do.
Has anybody else tried to submit press releases or talk to someone from the press? If so, what were your results? Does anyone know how many countries are represented in the Challenge so far? Did anyone notice that I didn't edit my post yesterday before posting it? I did go back and fix several errors at about 10 AM PST, but before that it was pretty bad.
Have a great weekend!
