WOW!!! 100,000 PAGEVIEWS

I never thought when I opened this blog in 2009 that I would have 100,000 pageviews on it! I started it to share my creations & tutorials in the big world of psp.  While I have reinvented myself and moved on, this blog is kept up & open. It's special as it is first one, where I started. I hope people can still use everything I have posted here. Thank you to everyone who has stopped by over the years. 
I'll continue to have the blog for anyone who needs it. I know there are many of us who are 
experienced taggers, but the community continues to grow and gain new taggers.
