Wadadli Pen – What’s Trending

Time for an update re what’s trending on Wadadli Pen YouTube and blog – the last one was in January. The goal with these trending posts (I do it on my Jhohadli blog as well) is to boost engagement (comments, shares, likes, subscriptions or follows) toward building support. If nothing else, it’s an opportunity to catch up with what you missed. So let’s go.
