Social Media Blackout

So yesterday, Facebook, Instagram and Whatsapp broke for a lot of us in Europe and I’m embarrassed to say that it freaked me out a little bit. 

Sure, it was a great moment to focus on building my upcoming printing class (if you’re a student of me you can already see a little preview of where I’m at with my planning in your classroom). But it got me thinking. What if it broke completely next time? Or what if they will just call it quits in a couple of years? You may think I’m silly but it has happened before. Just look at Google Plus or Hyves if you are a fellow Dutchie. I still remember the outrage and sadness when they announced it. Personally I didn’t like Hyves all that much because of all the glitter options and hysterical animated gifs, but I get it. It took you years to connect with a lot of amazing people and then all of a sudden, your social platform is no more. 

That’s why I’m so happy that a lot of you have trusted me with your e-mail address so I can keep in touch with you. I love coming up with my quickie tutorials and I love seeing what you all are doing with them. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! ❤️
