Tips Tuesday and See Your Site on Multiple Devices

Tips TuesdayHello Happy Site Owners! I’ve got some great tips to share with you this week from all over the Blogosphere, but first I want to tell you about a new offering on BlogAid. The Video Tutorial classes are here and my one-on-one training clients have been enjoying them for a couple of weeks.

Soon I’ll be making a special offer to BlogAid News subscribers for a 30 day trial for just $1.00. That’s over 100 minutes of fantastic WordPress training for just a buck! And, I’ll let you in on another little tidbit. One-on-one training clients now also receive free access to the videos for three months. So, the price for the individual training classes will be going up at the end of September. If you want to book your class before the increase, better contact me quick to get on the schedule.

Social Media Tips

On Small Business Trends, Lisa Barone reports that Google gets rid of third party reviews in Google Places. I’m not sure I agree with her assessment as to why, citing that G+ will take over the world. What do you think?

Authors on Facebook, you gotta see this. Check out the landing page of Before I Go to Sleep. It’s actually a tab to read the chapter of the book.

    Once again, chock full of useful information and advice. I’m checking into Jing. There’s another one called, Picnik (the free one) that can be useful for graphics too.

      Happy to share the good stuff, Dee. And I really need to be more active with StumbleUpon too. I have a review of Kristi Hine’s latest book coming out soon, and she credits StumbleUpon as one of the reasons her site is popular.
