Thanks for these reminders. I try to be more engaged and interact with my followers and others I follow. I’m pretty happy with where I’m at right now since I only have limited time. I am at work from 7:15am until 4:00pm Monday through Friday and try to work around that schedule. It’s not so easy but doable. :)
