    As usual, great content to read. I stopped at first with the 103 Ways to Improve Your Blog. Read it and may need to go back for reference later.

    The post on Google+ on Search Engine land was an interesting read. I already knew what he was talking about but was too timid to ever really proclaim it. It is obvious your searches change per whether or not you are logged into Google.

    Great reads!
