Wow, I didn't even know I was spotlighted until someone else (shadowchronicle) pointed it out to me. Thanks for recognizing my blog, Jody! First an E3 spotlight and now this...I may have to start blogging a lot more now. Too bad there's no "Member Spotlight" emblem. lol Oh, and I literally just got an iPhone yesterday, so I'll have to go check that out! PS. Congrats to everyone mentioned. Keep up the great work!
