6 Months of Articles at Get In the Hot Spot

I started to get serious about writing this blog in April 2009 so there are six months of articles here now.

This is a round up of the most popular articles to give new readers a chance to see what I write about and old readers a chance to catch up with anything they’ve missed.

Many thanks to my lovely readers and to everyone who’s emailed me or left a comment. You’ve spurred me on to write better and more confidently. I appreciate it.
