Blogs

For any new social media website to come to market will include a blog site for example: MySpace, Facebook, Twitter and even LinkedIn.…

At this time, you couldn’t even find lined paper at my desk let alone a pen to write with. Everything is on my hard drive, or back up disk drive, USB, and shared drives.…
