Open Mic Monday Update
Thank you again to everyone who participated in our Open Mic Monday last week! We have gathered all the questions (there were a lot of them, and they were all great!) and divvied them up, and Jane posted the first one (with answer!) on Wednesday. We had originally expected to answer them all over the next month or so, but we got more than we anticipated, so we'll be answering questions for the next couple of months at least. Keep an eye out for your answer!
