Please welcome Jane White (The Taming of Corky) who moderates our PDB Polka Dot Banter blog. Drop us an email if you have something you want to contribute. Jane says,

"Polka Dot Banter is a new, special addition to the Polka Dot Banner.  We'd like to see your thoughtful submissions to share with each other, pieces to motivate, inspire, or instruct readers and writers.  An occasional amusing piece would be welcome, too.  After all, "banter" does mean speaking or writing in a witty manner, and I challenge you to use your wits to make us think, consider, and grow together.  I await your contributions!"

Jane will also be moderating other aspects of the site, which she is so good at anyway, as she has been a solid contributor to the PDB almost from the start.
