UPDATE (5/2/09): The script originally referenced in this post is no longer available (the author, LinkyMe, mysteriously disappeared – along with his site).

Update on Making Money with a WordPress eBay RSS Blog

Why I Don’t Read Your Blog

June 6th, 2007 · 5 Comments

How many blogs exist? There are about 70 million blogs. A total guess here: I’ve probably heard of or seen links to maybe 1000 of those in all my browsing of the web. Out of those, I might have clicked on 100. So do I read 100 blogs? Do I subscribe to 100 feeds? Nope, […]

From the BBS to the Blog: How WordPress is Like WWIV

June 5th, 2007 · 5 Comments

If you’ve been online long enough, you might remember when there was no such thing as MySpace, there was nothing remotely similar to eBay, and you actually personally knew many of the people you chatted with online.

6 Blogging / WordPress Articles Actually Worth Reading

May 12th, 2007 · 3 Comments

Dontcha hate having to learn stuff by trial-and-error? It’s best to learn things by other people’s experience: it takes less time and is much safer. (Which I guess I could appreciate more if I worked with power saws, for example.) Even in the world of blogging, there are things that can go wrong and it’s […]
