When I started my GIFD project, it was met with warm reception. However, as I posted my mini-updates, the traction died down in visitor count and the original post still held more views. Therefore, I’ve created this post! Keep up to date with my progress by coming back to this page which will mostly just… Read more »
Taking a metaphorical deep breath for this one. Oh, and some F-bombs are dropped. So, kids, don’t tell your parents.
