They have each thrived in non-list format as well. In the coming weekends at PJ Lifestyle I’ll begin unveiling some of the greatest hits collections and themed article compilations of these and PJ’s other all-star writers. My hope is that these future collections can showcase clearly what I believe sincerely: the team of writers that I’m blessed to work with every day is the most talented, innovative, and exciting online. I want to see my friends succeed and more people all around the world come to recognize the extraordinary insights their articles provide.

So please check back with us at PJ Lifestyle on the weekends for more surprises…
