    great blog! just wanted to let you know that I uploaded a post of yours to
    http://sustain.newsladder.net/ (like Digg but centered around
    sustainability). It’s a great resource and I’m trying to spread the word
    about it. Please check it out and upload your posts there if you can!

  2. I am soooooo glad you wrote about this. When I find things that i want to post about on my blog, I have to print them out. I am a very visual person and I need to organize accordingly. But I find when I print it out there are so many blank pages and other crud that I feel like I am ruining an entire forest. I can’t wait to try this!!!!!
