Well, we might not have Neil with us in the Blogging 101 classroom like the fans above had him at the game with them, but that’s okay, I think we can pull this off. And you never know … maybe in this world-wide blogosphere we’re in, maybe he is with us? Anyway, with or without Neil, let’s make the follow buttons shake, the like keys rattle, and the comment boxes roll with a very loud collective singing of BAH-BAH-BAH to celebrate our time together in The Commons.
Thank you all for being a part of my journey and for sharing your travels with me. I learned lots, had fun, and made new friends. I hope to see you again along the side of the road one day, either virtually here on my blog or who knows, maybe even in the “real world” – whatever that is anymore! Happy trails everyone … Marianne

Stolen Words are my compilations of lyrics used to make a new piece of prose of sorts. The lyrics are “stolen” from the songs I hear while surfing my favourite channels on SiriusXM and Rdio.com. I hope you enjoy them – I have a blast writing them!
Bah-Bah-Bah was written for my classmates over in The Commons, the gathering place of questions, ideas, and pats on the back for those taking WordPress’ Blogging 101 Course: Zero To Hero, July 2015.
