- Freaks Do Not Get Followed – Andy Murdoch and I were two of many people who participated in ProBlogger’s Social Media Love-In. The Love-In was used as a way for people to meet others to interact with online via services such as Twitter. Whereas Andy and I both discovered that there are a number of unusual people out there, Andy actually had the courage to write about it. This article is meant to be taken lightly.
- The Complete Flake’s Guide to Getting Things Done – Are you super organized and productive or more scattered? If you are the latter, then this article is definitely for you.
- ‘Walk This Way’ Week: How Pedestrian-Friendly is Your Town? – This article asks you to consider how friendly your community is for walking in light of increasing energy costs.
- Are You Throwing Away Your Best Content Ideas? – Copy Blogger recommends that you use your best ideas immediately rather than waiting for a better time, such as when you have more site visitors or you think the article could make the front page of Digg. I look at it as life is short and you never know what is going to happen so it is best to seize the moment.
