Blaugust tip: schedule your posts

I know, it’s tough. You’ve just punched out your latest and greatest blog post. It’s just sitting there, staring back at you. You can hardly wait to send your new baby out into the world and see what kind of reactions it garners. That publish button looms large.

Someone Stole my BLOG: A cautionary tale

Oh, the vanity domain. Why can’t we resist your ego-boosting charm? I mean, it’s right in the name – VANITY. And yet, most bloggers (including myself) just can’t resist the thought of staking out our very own section of cyberspace.
