Time to Spread the Love-I’d like to thank each one of you for being part of the Blind Pig. During the month of June you went along with me as I suckered tomatoes, bemoaned cuts in education funding, tried to figure out why I feel safer in the mountains, sat under the weeping willow tree and bragged about my squash.

I’ve always assumed everyone knew why I link back to folks who comment during the month-until someone asked me-“Why do you go to all that trouble of linking to each person who comments?” So I thought I would share the answer with you in case anyone else was wondering. The answer-each time someone links to your blog/website-it raises your Google ranking-which makes it easier for folks to find your site-and hopefully leads to an increase in traffic. As a way of saying thank you for supporting the Blind Pig & The Acorn-I link to your sites to show support for them too.
The prize for June-is the world renown book-Our Southern Highlanders by Horace Kephart. I love reading about the history of Appalachia and it’s great people-but I especially enjoy Kephart’s book as he lived less than a 100 miles from me when he wrote it.
The Spread the Love winner for June is…David Templeton.
Hope you all keep visiting the Blind Pig-and please click on one of those commenters-and go for a visit- I know you’ll be glad you did.
