I star a lot of posts that I read on blogs through Google Reader - intending to go back and use the resources or follow up on the ideas or share elsewhere. I have failed miserably to do that since September 2009, so there will follow a series of posts of links to blog posts I have liked/starred so that I can find the links and remind myself why I kept them in the first place!
Here I'll post youthwork related posts and links and I'll do other personal, parenting and scrapbooking ones over on the family blog at www.funkydoofamily.blogspot.com so join me there, or on twitter @funkydoofamily...
