    Congrats for making it to the top 6. I see you often ask for your readers’ opinions. I would love to get your opinion on my post, dated Jan. 5, on the use of zebra pattern. Do you think the trend has gone overboard? I think my growing readership would love to know what you think of the post. You can find my blog at

    Good luck with the rest of the contest.
