[Blog] The Me, Myself and I Challenge
In some top tier blogs, you can count 30, 40, even 50% of the ten visible posts beginning with the word I. And that provoked the thought, “What would happen to a blog if the blogger couldn’t use the words me, myself or I for a month?. So from Thanksgiving until Christmas, look for me to take the Me, Myself and I challenge on this blog. To discuss the whole meme of nihilism in social media would be pointless. It’s been beaten to death. Bloggers are by their very nature self centered creatures. How annoying would that be?

[Blog] Pushing Through Barriers to Strike Gold
People who, like me, saw the opportunity in blogging to build something significant – but who at the first sign of clay abandoned their blogs. Then there were others who abandoned their work because of the exciting ‘rumors’ from up creek… bloggers who stopped blogging to MySpace… to tweet… to Tumblr… to Facebook… to G+… The blogosphere is littered with abandoned blogs and I sometimes wonder what might have happened if some of those bloggers had kept digging through the clay.

[Blog] Infographic: Is it Time to Consider SEO Automation?
If you use a CRM to track your sales or contact lists, a few automation tools can even automatically correlate specific keywords to leads coming in from your blog contact form and eventual revenue. That kind of information makes it possible for you to make smart choices about what niche topics to blog about. For example, if you’re a tech blogger, and you find that every time you blog about 3D TVs you get above average numbers of page views, and many more leads from advertisers, then that might have a strong impact on your content strategy.

When she opened the site and saw that his profile was private, she asked him for his password. Bassett refused and withdrew his application, stating that he didn’t want to work for a company that would ask for such personal information. Apparently this is all too common.
