The Biography Posts

Even though I'm done writing the biography posts, people aren't quite done reading them.

That's why most people end up on my blog. I don't mean that most people in the world come to my blog. What I mean is that most people who DO come to my blog, do so for the biography posts. They're more popular than my other posts.

I've decided it might be helpful to have one post with a link to all the biography posts. Then it will be easier for people to find stuff.

So.....

Here we go.
