A long time ago I stopped displaying Adsense ads on several of my blogs, including this one, because of the types of ads which were showing. On a health-related blog I did not want to advertise drugs and weight-loss fads, and on this blog I did not want to advertise scams or get-rich quick schemes.
If you are anything like me, you might have a hard drive full of unstudied information – most of which you want to study and recognize as being valuable and useful. The trick is, finding time to study valuable information which you can use in projects, while still having time to work on the projects themselves.
It doesn’t hurt to get credit where credit is due. You could be losing some valid backlinks, if you use a service such as Feedburner to manage your RSS feeds. But that’s easy to fix.

I just ordered something and I’m actually kind of excited about it. Okay to start off, I have to admit, I was bribed. The product owner is giving away free coaching MP3s for anyone who can pay shipping and handling of around $9.97. But instead of just giving away the MP3 files, or a CD, he is giving away the MP3 player as well. Not only that but his product looks USEFUL!
