Blog Authors Needed

I am needing one or two more people to add on to this blog as "authors". I will be having my third baby in a few weeks and want other people to be able to post events and such on here as well. I love doing this service, but feel if there were even more "eyes and ears" out there looking for things to do, it would be more beneficial to all. Please email me at nateandaudrey@yahoo.com if you would be interested in this. Thanks!!
