The update this week is going to be quite short as I have only begun to scratch the surface of my reader – marking all read really helps sometimes, especially when you have 1000+ unread in one folder alone. I still have a couple hundred unread articles as it is though.
Posts I liked –
- Mr. Brown (of the Mr. Brown show) has a couple of excellent Thai commercials posted on his site – Cheers Beer – which is a lighter commercial; and Thai Insurance – which are very touching ads.
- There’s finally a PageRank update going on! Andy has some details, and so does Meg. Personally, I got a 4, and I am very happy with that – it’s an improvement over what my old rank was. 🙂
- Tay had a great article recently about advertising on your blog; I hadn’t linked to it yet, but since I’m kind of short on things to link to, here ya go 😉 – Start making more money and sell your own ads. I think as long as you do it with nofollow on, you’re ok with Google.
New blogs this week in the US Blogs community at BumpZEE –
- Principled Discovery – URL Change
- Healthy Food
- It’s not so hot on my yacht
- Henson’s Hell
- kick someone out of a group skype chat – you can’t, unfortunately. You’ll have to start a new chat with just the folks you want in that case
- how to dress like a doctor – Um, buy a stethoscope and put it around your neck? A white lab coat won’t hurt either. 😉
- 747-400b – I’d love to ride in one of these one day. Either that or an A380 🙂
- chasers where the bloody hell are you – Why aren’t their spoof ads airing yet?
- sephyroth google blogger robots.txt – You do know I have a site search here, right? It’s not the greatest, but surely it’s better than google, hehe 😉
In the Tuesday Think Tank, the topic was Skype. Snos showed you how you can save tons of money by using Skype – All About Skype – Tech Tuesday, and I filled everyone in on the basics of installing, signing up and finding folks with Skype – A Phenomenal Tool for Communication.
Coming up this week. Well, I have no clue, I haven’t planned out my blog for the rest of the week; anyone have any ideas of what I could write about? I’ve got a list of things here; I’ll have to dig that out and see what I haven’t done yet… 😉 However, NaBloPoMo starts on Thursday, and I’m in it officially this time.
