My Apologies…bad blogger!


No Moss Brands Mean Shorty FaceMy apologies to those of you on mobile platforms, because when you click on the blog of choice below you will not see the Digg Digg Sharing Buttons. Evidently they do not have a mobile version. That explains why when I’m on my iPad and iPhone I can’t see those buttons on your blogs.

Again, please accept my apologies, as I look for another option!
