The #FridayFlash Report – Vol 3 Number 33

This is my farewell Friday Flash Report, brought to you by technical magic of Tim VanSant. We have been working behind the scenes to get the entire Collector/Report process more user friendly and automated. Actually, Tim has been working behind the scenes,  and the time has come to take the wraps off the new and improved Collector. We think you will like it.

I am also taking this opportunity to bow out of the Report. Tim is going to be taking over this slot. After nearly three years of doing the Report I am ready for a change. I’ll still be involved in FFDO, just not on this page anymore.

Well, enough of that already, what about the stories? We had 39 stories this week with 3 debuts. Please welcome Karla Locke, Jose, and Steven Montano to the Friday Flash Community. And please welcome your new Friday Flash Report Editor, Tim VanSant.

If your story is not in the listing below please visit the new Friday Flash Collector and enter the details. As always, keep on writing. ~jon

    Thanks guys. It has been a pleasure working with and getting to know you all. I’ll still be around, but Tim will be running the Report starting next week. He has been involved all along behind the scenes and is one of the many people I depend on to keep this ship afloat. I know I am leaving this job in very capable hands.

  4. For he’s a jolly good fellow, for he’s a jolly good fellow …..

    Both of you are! Congratulations on your new journeys and thank you for all your hard work!
