  • 4 min read

When you get published in one of them your articles will automatically be curated.

Besides being a full-time software developer and online course instructor, my husband is also an indie developer.

He loves to create video games and play them.

I‘m a huge fan of ‘The Affair’ and binge-watched the popular HBO series.

I even hopped on a plane to New York City and visited Montauk on New Island where ‘The Affair’ takes place.

My answer:

YES!

Let’s start with…
