  1. What an interesting project, Lenio! I love it! You've done a wonderful job here, the blog design, the colorful background, gadgets, images, podcasts, instructions, etc. Congratulations!!! What I don't see is the promo podcast inviting your readers to visit your blog and follow your project. :-( Will you include it? It would be great to listen to it. :-)
