    Hey Alex,
    This is a wonderful article sharing other people and your work! I am in the process of starting my own blog (first post, woo!) and I think the hardest part of the process is going to be opening myself enough to let people see the person behind the words and thoughts. The lessons I read in this post could not have come to my eyes at a better time. One thing i really enjoy is the stay positive message throughout your blog!
