Another Cool Plugin – DataFeedr Random Ad

One of the things I love about WordPress is if you can imagine it, you can have it. A couple of days ago Kristine’s comment got me to thinking. Her comment was in response to my post about the 3% increase in revenue as a result of making a few changes to my Google AdSense [...]

Another Blogging Plugin-LinkWithin

Now that I’m not on a breakneck writing pace, I’ve got time to goof off a lot more. I noticed on Prerna and Kidgas’ blogs they had a neat little linking tool that linked to other posts within their blogs.  I didn’t notice it at first, but as I continued to visit their blogs, I [...]
