Should I try to post on weekends?

I tend not to post on weekends because (1) I’m often traveling to Seoul on weekends, which makes blogging hard and (2) I feel like I need time to build up post ideas so I have something to do during the week. But recently, I’ve been wondering if posting on the weekend would increase the [Read More...]

Advice on setting up Facebook timeline?

I’ve decided I finally have to set mine up. Any advice? I’m going to go post an ad on ELance, looking for someone who can design a cover for me, and redesign my blog banner while I’m at it. What else? [Read more...]

Until then, a couple things. [Read more...]

A picture’s worth a thousand words

I wasn’t totally happy with my original profile pic for this site. Then I changed it, and I’m still not totally happy. Then I had a brilliant idea (by which I mean “an idea I need feedback on”): [Read more...]

No really?

I just checked the comments, and saw one that was obviously spam, and marked it as such before even looking at the “author’s” name. Then WordPress gave me this message: Comment by long porn videos marked as spam. Really? You think? [Read more...]
