Libertine YouTube Community

Sometimes when making something new, it is me that feels like the baby duckling. Someone (who I consider to be generally rather clever) has suggested I make a YouTube channel to go along with the blog. Being a child of dial-up internet days, I've used YouTube rather a lot as a viewer, but not as… Continue reading Libertine YouTube Community

‘Hi, I followed you from Tinder. Want to meet?’ -does flirting on Instagram work?

I recently made an Instagram account for this blog, as part of my incredibly gradual takeover of social media (I doubt Zuckerberg and the Kardashians are worried).
