GAGs - GeniAus' Gems - 13 March 2015

Most weeks I can't remember what posts I have stashed in my Evernote GAGs folder for consideration for the week's selection but this week I have one that is clearly Top of my Pops. I will put Carmel's post as my number 1 this week. The remainder of the posts will be in random order.


Top of my Pops this week is a courageous post from Carmel, a Generous Genie.

5. I usually avoid sharing posts from commercial organisations but this one written by Denise (whose ideas I like) is an exception.

6. And while I'm being nice to organisations...I'm a Telstra basher (they deserve it) but I applaud them for this fun initiative.

7. Sharn is another member of the Generous Genie Brigade and her research skills are pretty good too.

Thanks for the links Jill...some good ones in there. I'm not 100% in agreement with Carmel, which is fine, but her post was certainly thought provoking (especially as a Congress speaker).

How boring it would be if we all agreed on everything. Let's dare to differ.
