    Hi,

    I thought you’d like to know there is a spelling error on your site in the Submissions area. It is the sub-point under the fifth main bullet point. It currently says “Please review or columns for ideas.” It should read “Please review our columns for ideas.”

    Have a great day!

      Maureen, Thank you for your editing eye. We will change it. Have a blessed day.
