Don’t Miss Out On This

First of all, I want to thank you so much for your support. If you are reading this, then that means you not only read my blog, but you have subscribed to it to make sure you never miss a post. That really means a lot to me and I appreciate each one of you.

About a week and a half ago, I changed my site and in the process, I lost out on all of my followers. I know many of you have found the new site, but in case you haven’t, I’m still at www.allinstrides.com. I’m still posting twice a week, and if you’ve been waiting for an email of my latest post, this change is why you haven’t received one.

If you are interested in still following my blog, please head on over to www.allinstrides.com and drop your email in the sidebar where it says “Never Miss a Post”.

Thank you again for all of your support and I look forward to connecting with you more on the new site 🙂
