  1. BrainTalk has enabled blogging!

    Truthfully this should have been done long ago. I wasn't a big fan of the built in blog feature and was looking for a third party add on that would be better. Then after awhile I forgot all about blogging. So now blogs are on and people will (hopefully) use them a lot or at least some of the time
