It’s always good to look back over a month of #WASO and reflect on which posts you enjoyed, touched you, enraged you or for some reason just stuck with you long after reading. We have no formula for selecting and we are always very appreciative of everyone who joins in #WASO but hey a little competition is healthy right! Here they are June’s TOP 3.
