Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by to read some more shoutout! I have a request for everyone. Please turn on your private messages in Twitter! I find it easiest to contact everyone on Twitter and if you don’t turn on messages, I have to tag you in public. It looks like spam if I do it more than once! Thanks!
Maybe you’re wondering how often I post these Shoutouts.As of now, I post them whenever I don’t have a post scheduled for the day. Once I get time to write reviews, I’ll do this weekly, depending if people reply with answers.
This is a suggestion for everyone. I’m going to go through my own social media and do the same. If you have a social media link, our in a means of contact and a bio. Without contact, it’s pointless because no one will be able to let you know they saw it. They can’t interract with you. Without a bio, you don’t give anyone a reason to want to contact you. Something to think about!
Here we go with the third installment!
