Technical Difficulties

I typically use the app to do all my blogging. Anytime that I log in before, I would click on comments. It would show me comments to approve or deny. This feature always worked. I have been checking them daily on the app, but it keeps saying that I do Read more

“Home Again” by Kristin Hannah

This book was so predictable but also good. Kristin Hannah still was able to spin a great story regardless of me being able to predict every chapter. I read this book rather quickly.
