    Hey, Social Media Collective, I’ve looked around your site here and I can’t find where/how to follow you on Facebook or Twitter. Also, I don’t quite understand this “Leave a Reply” form.. it’s just a box and form element on a page, I don’t see how to figure out what person(s) it might go to or what role they have or expectation I might have of them. Confused here, okthxbi.

      Hi Tim!

      We don’t have a FB or Twitter page, so that’s easy to answer🙂

      The “Leave a Reply” is just a standard comment box. Hope this helps & let me know if you have other questions.

    I was just going through some technology related sites and came across your site ( too. I really found it interesting and informative. I am working and associated techskool.orgith many technology related sites as a content writer and I write articles on various topics of technology, mobile broadband, Internet and gadgets. I really liked the way you have presented your site. I have found a guest post submission option in your site. I would love to do a “Guest Post” for your site like I did for other sites without charging you a penny.🙂
    It would be great to be a part of reputed site like yours.
    I guarantee you that the article will be 100% copyscape protected and will be of around 500 words.
    Please let me know if this sounds good to you, so that we can start working on your article.
    Contact me at .Looking forward for a positive reply.🙂
    Thanks and regards,
