... I didn’t bring you on this journey of the last ten years of my life to give all the gloom and doom. No, sir! Because you see in the last few years of this decade there has been a turnaround in my situation (and my friend’s). She met a nice young man at work [...]
In September 2018 William Jackson and I, along with several students, attended FlBlogCon, created by the lovely Bess Auer. Sponsored by Ford and hosted at Full Sail University, the conference was well attended by bloggers from all over the state of Florida and beyond.
