Every morning while I have my power breakfast, I log on to YouTube to watch a newly released video made by a popular Ukrainian blogger. And there’s always a new video waiting for me each morning. Sometimes a video lasts several minutes, other times it can last up to twenty minutes. Regardless of the length, every video is an […]
