Drop It Like It’s Hot

Hello readers, thanks again for another week of great conversations.  I know that we had a few controversial posts this week but this is exactly what causes us to either perfect our arguments or consider a different path.  The point of WM is to have the difficult conversations. At this time, I would also like to remind everyone about the open guest posting policy.  If you have an original or a cross post you would like to see here, don’t be shy about sending me an e-mail.

I am still having problems getting Intense Debate to obey.  For some reason it is still sending far too many comments to moderation.  I am trying to approve them as quickly as possible but if you don’t see your comment appear, please send me an e-mail and I will hunt it down for you.

I have added a few new features to the comments.  I have made it a little easier for you to share a post via social media.  There are now smiley faces etc that you can add to reflect an emotion.  You can put a youtube video in and my personal fav, you can also create a poll on any issue in the comments.  I hope that we can all have some fun with these new features.

Below you will find a list of some great posts that I found this week.  Please show these bloggers some love and check them out.  When you are through, don’t forget to drop it like it’s hot and leave your link behind in the comment section.
