FlexSqueeze Latest Update Absolutely Rocks

I've been waiting for this update for quite awhile now so you can imagine how exited I was to receive an email saying it was available to download. Man, I doubt that anyone has ever seen me move so fast :laugh_tb: Yes, this blog is now running on the latest FlexSqueeze and I must say that the improvements Ryan's made has made it even easier to customize than before. He's even added a few things that were missing in the last version, mainly drop down menus and you now can have multiple squeeze pages on the same blog, one of the suggestions that I think I may have made on his forum. Seeing as how there are so many changes, more than I could possibly include in this post without boring the crap out of you, I thought I would put together a little video using my Total Screen Recorder Gold. The video will highlight some of the main changes and will also show you how easy it is to customize your blog. I have to admit that after installing the latest update I found that the color picker wasn't working. I immediately went onto Ryan's forum, yes he does give support, and after giving him access to my admin area he found out it was conflicting with one of my plugins, Digiprove, which I spoke about in the post telling you how all my posts were copyright protected. Once he tracked down the problem he had a solution for me that…

In Life And In Blogging Observation Is Important

Have you ever noticed how some people make a fool of themselves because they they lack certain observation skills. This usually occurs from sheer laziness and is shown by many commentators when they leave stupid comments. Stupid because everyone who's read the post can tell that they didn't. Even if the blogger does not delete the comment and they still get a link back to their site everyone who reads the comment can see them for what they really are and will more likely than not give their blog a miss. I got this email today which highlighted how important it is to observe what is going on around us, and I thought I would post it here forĀ  you all so that it may hopefully open your eyes to what is happening around you. The Lone Ranger and Tonto went camping in the desert. After they got their Tent all set up, both men fell sound asleep. Some hours later, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger and says, 'Kemo Sabe, look Towards sky, what you see? ' 'The Lone Ranger replies, 'I see millions of stars.'

The Importance Of Honesty In Blogging

Some time ago I did a post Defending A Blogger's Right To Review A Product where I gave an example of a well renowned blogger who got it completely wrong when dealing with some negative feedback from a fellow blogger, his customer, who bought a reviewed one of his products. That posts showed my reasoning as to why his reactions were totally wrong and how he should of reacted. This post will be dealing with another important subject for bloggers whether they are blogging for money or for the pure enjoyment of it all, something that is also true in the real world, that subject being honesty. Most people already know how important it is to be absolutely honest when writing a post, especially when promoting an affiliate or a product. You don't want to be telling people how good something is when you know it's really crap, no matter how much commission it's earning you. This is because once you are found out your credibility is shot all to hell and once people find out you will find that your online career will be short lived. Image via Wikipedia Now, while most people tend to behave when on their own blogs they tend to forget themselves, as in the above example, when commenting on other blogs. These are those brown nosing commentators who leave you lies just so do not delete their comment or to win some misconstrued brownie points. You're probably wondering what the heck I'm talking about so I'll…
