    His labour of love is WordPress Mods ; a blog which focuses on WordPress Themes, Plugins, Tutorials, News, Modifications. Originally at: Blog Tips at ProBlogger. This guest post is by Kevin Muldoon of WordPress Mods. Google AdSense has been in the news a lot over the last month, for all the wrong reasons. Many top AdSense publishers such as Zac Johnson and Spencer Haws have had their accounts banned and their last month of earnings withheld. And Google won’t give a specific reason as to why any particular account—including either of these—has been banned. The ad overlay.

    [Blog] Quick updates: DPiP and a new me…
    originally started TheWayoftheWeb as a personal blog while I was first employed as a journalist and then as a marketing manager. As a result, I’ve questioned how this site needs to evolve, and what content belongs on it as a business, rather than a personal blog. As a result, I’ve finally taken the time to set up a new blog at danthornton.net. DanThornton.net will be a more personal blog, and include anything and everything that I want to put online, whether it’s related to work, leisure, music, videogames etc. Buffer

    [Blog] Finding Your Creative Confidence
    promise. I''m going to smile a lot more in the office, when I write these blog posts, when I speak on stage and in everything that I do. I used to play the bass. Not the fish. The musical instrument. The electric bass, to be exact. It wasn''t just a hobby, either. took it quite seriously. When I was much younger (around 14 years of age), I decided to forgo a summer vacation with my high school class to work in a warehouse packing make-up, just so I could afford my first electric bass (a new one. as I was already tinkering with a used one). and I haven''t changed the strings in forever.

Why should you bother using tools like Vine and Instagram , and the like? That question was asked to me by Pam Vitaz , and she asked it somewhat in this context (my words not hers): Vine’s interesting, but you basically just shot a funny video. Why do that? Here’s the video she meant: Can’t see the video? Click Here. Can’t hear sound? Hover over it and click the little sound thingy.
