    I’d like #1 (spring salad) and # 71 (top 10 changes to make at home for better health(.

    Questions:
    1. Are we limited to 2 blogs a month? O can I submit more?
    2. I submitted 2 blogs in February, I got a response/confirmation for one of them but not for the second, I sent an enquiry email and still didn’t get a response. Is there a way I can check if and when it will be published?
    Thank you, Rachel

  2. Janette Stuart

    Hi Anna,
    I’d like to submit a blog series on Joy, using some excerpts from my book series “On a Path of Joy”. This would flow nicely into my class on Joy to be held on May 3.
