LABSN Editor’s Note: Three very good writers are sharing their ideas about a writing genre they all produce. I thought I’d share one of the posts, leading you to their blog site.

LABSN Editor’s Note: Nick and Lins, a Belgian naturists couple, have a wonderful blog, Naked Wanderings, of their travels to naturists venues around the world. This post tackles some social media issues I’ve been thinking about also.
