Favorite Internet Challenges

Favorite Internet Challenges

Question of the day: Do you get caught up in Internet challenges? Okay, if your response was, “What is an Internet challenge?” I feel like you probably don’t dive into them (at least not regularly). I do. In fact, I get very excited about them … for about three minutes. Well, it might be more than three minutes. I might […]
