Log of Recent Changes to Educational Material Related to Personal Growth
As of June 2008, development of my educational material through ongoing conversations with other people, had reached the point where I could no longer remember who has read what, and when.
Therefore, I instituted this "blog", really more of an editor's major-change log, so that readers can keep up to date on what has been changed, added or improved. It is in reverse chronological order (recentmost first) so you can check it like a blog. Contact me with suggestions and other feedback.
