MISCELLANEOUS LINKS
 
RECIPROCAL - THANK YOU - NEWSLETTER ITEMS - ETC
 
     
 

Among the miscellaneous links listed here you will find reciprocal links for sites having a wsharing.com link, or a special thank you, when someone went out of their way to be helpful, nice, or generous.  In some cases, the listing is simply because I found a site exceptional, or it had something I felt should be shared, but it did not fit any of my other categories. The links related to my various newsletter articles are located here too.  I also transferred the links from "additional products" here when I discontinued that page in February 2015. 

While most of the sites on this page contain interesting or informative materials, they may, or may not, represent similar philosophies with my wsharing site.  In fact, some contain totally unrelated subject matter.  As with any links from my site, should you find any display of blatantly offensive or hateful materials, or endorsement of violence by visual means or through information, please inform (email) me, so I may discontinue the link. 

Those links which resulted from a newsletter article, will have the issue number, or other designation, in parenthesis directly following the name.  If you are looking for something from one of the older newsletters, and it does not appear here, it may have become outdated or non-functioning, and I removed it from the list.  If you find any of these links no longer work, please let me know.  Thank you. 

I have placed an asterisk* by each place I have personally visited, and each entry I have personal experience with. I visited every website at the time they were added to this page, but often not beyond that.
