I recently went back through my comments to check on my fellow Quick Start Challenge (QSC) folks to see how they were doing. When I started this blog, I was part of a much bigger community that was starting our online businesses together. There seems to be comfort in crowds. You can read about the QSC in my post A Challenge May Be The Start You’re Looking For.
