  1. Every blogging person should make one of these. It is an amazing read and I thank you for sharing it. I was also pretty blown away by some of them, to be honest. Youngest of eight, eh? I’m the eldest of eight (not the same eight, but you get my drift).

  2. Wow. Thanks for posting this. How did you go about making your list? Did you do it all at once? You should write a book.
