I know that I’m suffering from the mid-week blahs. It’s during this time of the week that I think I’m in the best groove for freelance writing, but at the same time, it’s very easy to fall into a slump and get incredibly bored with myself. That’s why now is the perfect time to take another tour of the blogosphere, peeking at what other bloggers have to say.
Bob Buskirk, like me, doesn’t really have a real boss and there’s no need to actually commute to any sort of office. As such, it can be pretty easy to get unmotivated to work, because there’s really no one there that will force you to trudge on through your work. That’s why logging your hours is such an important thing for dot com moguls, freelance writers, and entrepreneurs in general to do. I started logging my hours a couple months back and it helps to keep me on track. It provides a quantitative measure of how much work I actually got done that day, that week, or that month.
Derrich was lucky enough to take the all-new 2008 Infiniti G37 Coupe out for a test drive. This car is so new that the dealership didn’t even have any for sale yet; they only had the demo car and a “sample” spec sheet (with no pricing). Derrich provides a fairly extensive overview of the features and the thrill of blipping the redline. I’m sure the extra 0.2L of displacement over the G35 made a world of difference. ð
Courtney Tuttle outlines 6 major blogging mistakes we all make. Given that I try to publish at least one new post each and every day (often putting two per day during the week), it’s understandable that there are going to be mistakes here and there, but Courtney isn’t talking about spelling and grammar. From misconceptions to stupid habits, he’s got it all covered.
Kumiko Suzuki, although she seems to be removing her name from the Cash Quests website, is still offering all sorts of useful tips for the everyday blogger, especially the everyday blogger who wants to make money online. In one of her most recent posts, she describes how you can take a full screenshot of your site. All you need is a free extension for Firefox and you’ll be able to capture an image of your entire page; it scrolls on its own.
Last, but certainly not least, is Alvaro Fernandez from SharpBrains.com. He put up a guest post on The Thinking Blog, providing all of us with instructions to shrink your brain in 8 easy steps. Everyone else is talking about how you can get smarter, faster, stronger… Alvaro — with his tongue in his cheek — wants you to get slower, dumber, and more useless. Kinda like Homer.
And that’s what’s up on… er… what day is it again? Maybe I shouldn’t have shrunk my brain.
