Okay, well maybe the first one is a little self-related.
In case you didn't know, I'm a proud member of JASNA (Jane Austen Society of North America...duh.) and the regional chapter in Louisville. Our region is hosting an awesome Jane Austen Festival in July and Margaret Sullivan will be speaking, author of AustenBlog and The Jane Austen Handbook. Ms. Sullivan posted about us last week and you should check it out and come to the festival because it is awesome.
Also, one of my favorite blogs is This Young House. They are in a Better Homes and Garden 48-Hour Makeover Challenge and they need your vote. Everyday. (Okay I forget to do it everyday but at least try for most days.) If you don't like their makeover the best and don't want to vote for them, then please don't vote at all. Need additional incentives to vote?
1. Don't you want to learn about the projects they'll do with the prize money?
2. If this visual doesn't inspire you, then I don't know what will.
