I am not going to be adding the BLOG BUZZ headline for now as I am continuing to adjust my time spent on this blog while trying to keep the content quality as high as you have become accustomed to. But the general flow will continue: Start with general hobby links, then travel links, then some weird and/or news worthy far out links, a personal finance piece and then up to three links with amazing images. Then followed by Blog Buzz stuff as in advanced hobby links, some blog buzzy news and always ending with a funny pic/gif.
