A Rant and a Demonstration of WP Video Commando

I ranted about this "mediocrity band of suck" quite some time ago, but the lesson still stands today. But that's not really the point of this post. Rather, it's to try out Ali G.'s new plugin for video, called "WP Video Commando." It looks pretty cool. By the way, this video is hosted at YouTube. Judge for yourself.

Build Your Online Skill Set or Be "Under-Employed"

(This is not meant to be a political post. Please do not misunderstand my intention.) Let's face facts: The median income of the American family peaked in 1999.

[caption id="attachment_6083" align="alignleft" width="265"] Image courtesy of imagerymajestic | FreeDigitalPhotos.net[/caption] I'm a slow learner. It's taken me YEARS to figure out one very simple thing and I'm here to tell you today to please learn from my mistake(s). Here it is: I have tried to do too much. Every time I had a "good idea," I bought a domain and built a site. I have hundreds of sites. Problem is, most of them are incomplete, lack focus, and are very ineffective in

Think Article Directories Are Dead?

Think again! Article directories are far from dead. Read on. I just went over to Alexa, and while nobody's web statistics are 100 percent accurate (how could they be?), I found this:   [caption id="attachment_6041" align="aligncenter" width="562"] Alexa ranking for Ezinearticles.com[/caption] Alexa is a great way to compare the relative traffic of one site over another.
