Congratulations to Rachel Rogers! When she clicked “follow” on SideDish’s Twitter page, she became our 2,500th follower. Here is a little about Rachael: She lives in Waco and her profile says she is a junior in college.
Why do we already love her? She says, “According to a fortune cookie, I will become an accomplished writer.” Rachel, write something for SideDish. The rest of you get busy. @DSideDish. Opportunities abound.
