5 Daily Sources of Blog Inspiration

At the heart of blogging is writing. For many bloggers, writing is their creative outlet. Even if their blog evolves into a business, it usually started out “just for fun.”. At least, it did for me. I love to write and it's still an outlet for me even if much of my


Bye-Bye GFC

Here we are, less than 24 hours away from the removal of Google Friend Connect (GFC) from non-blogspot blogs. I suspect it will leave blogspot blogs at some point in the near future too. We worked hard to reach 5100+ followers in the past year and now it is being taken away..
