  2. If I won I'd user it as a substitute that I use everything in sugar in, obviously. Our family consumes a lot of sugar and it is very unhealthy. I've been wanting to make the switch to Splenda but I've been hesitant until now. I'd use it for recipes, tea, sprinkling on frozen strawberries, the possibilities are endless.

    Now if I won this prize, I would totally change the way I cook using sugar. I enjoy sweet tea, would use it in that, as well as trying the coffee flavors. There are so many things I would change about how I make sweets for my kids! This is a great way to help people get away from all the processed sugars we take in every day!

  23. Hi! I'm glad I stopped by. I saw your problem with comments, and wanted to see if it was fixed. I had the same problem, then I couldn't post unless it was from facebook or Scribe Fire, an extension on Chromium. I'm coming to the conclusion that if you give them a reason why it's essential, they fix each blog individually. I told them I was up for an advocacy position (no money and extra work, but it's a good cause and very personal to me and many friends (Pain). It's been working now for a few days, for all issues. If you have time, can you tell me how NetWorked blogs is working for you? I noticed you said you had a new blog, and I need to converse with a lot of people, so either I would create a new blog (as long as they work) and I just signed up for NetWorked blogs. Didn't intend on asking, but since your comments are working--that's the only reason I came. So you are under no obligation to respond. Will be a fan on Facebook. Good luck.

  24. The only way the comments got fixed was by me removing the moderation on them. I never heard from blogger or anyone else on the forums. :(

    I don't have a new blog; this one has been going for a while now. I do use networked blogs on facebook, if that's what you're talking about. It works fine.
