Dofollow Social Networks
This week I have been doing some updates to the dofollow social media networks page, removing some networks that are no longer dofollow (like all of the Ning networks and LinkedIn) and adding several new networks to the mix. More additions will be coming soon, so keep it on your watch list!
Week in Review
This week, I discussed how I took posts from Kikolani and branched them out into new blogs. Instead of moving everything to a new site, I moved selected posts from one WordPress to the next, quite easily.
So now all of my poetry has a new home at Fragile Poetry, and some of my personal discovery articles have moved to Artistic Gemini, which will also cover a mix of astrology, personality, psychology and more.
Who Says Tennis Can’t Be Funny?
These are outtakes of a commercial for the new Head tennis racquets featuring Novak Djokovic. Quite amusing!
