This week’s writer has some very unique articles on his favorite subject, survival, and he will capture your attention. I am speaking of Brian Schultz, who I noticed just changed his photo – he looks a tad like Tim McGraw don’t you think? He has been publishing on AC since mid-January of this year. If you haven’t read any of Brian’s articles, check out his source page here.
After checking with some of my previous Writer’s Corner picks, I am finding out that their fan base has increased as well as page view counts. They all earned it!
