  8. I am not interested in these books, but your links here and at Bloggy Giveaways to the Deborah Tannen Book are going to my dashboard. I am not sure why that is happening but I would appreciate it if you could fix it.


    Comment by Barbara H. | January 28, 2008

  9. Barbara,

    I checked all four of my blogs and the html code in each and they all point to “”

    I checked the link at the bloggy giveaway and it points to “” which is a different address.

    I don’t have access to your dashboard and had no knowledge of your blog when I posted these. I don’t know what is happening to you, but it appears to be out of my control.

    Is this happening to anyone else?

  20. I guess I will go for this, and if I win, I will take that as a sign from God that I need to get serious about it, lol. How’s that for motivation? Leave it to God!
