LeaveTheGate.com has been around for almost a year now. We’ve had some great interactions, hosted some beautiful guest posters, and had visitors from almost 70 nations.

Thanks for your interest in LTG.

I hope you enjoy these links to a few posts from this past year.

Sometimes we want things really really badly. But wanting things “really really badly” is no way to guarantee you’ll get them.
