Inspirational cancer blogger Miles Levine dies at age 18.

"Cancer claimed another young life on Sunday, August 19, when Miles Levin passed away after a two-year battle with alveolar rhabdomyosarcoma."

Category and blogroll name changes

Couple of things for discussion: - In categories, I added "& Web" behind "Technology" and add a category called "Website" too.

Yet, if WE don't do it, some people might not sign up and we'll lose the work we did with the existing BlogHerRoll. ...more

Users without admin controls will have access to edit only their own nodes, so creating the ... more
