Had this happen to me this week, Rohan. This person had written over 100 guest posts in 90 days, and I quickly found out how he did it. He had a handful of posts that he reworded and submitted as new original content to another blog. All it took was a quick Google search on key word phrases along with his name and "guest post." Excellent advice in this post, Rohan. I wish more people would follow it.

Interesting service, Alvin. I could see how this could be useful for businesses that require a high degree of sensitivity.

I know I'm probably a little naive when it comes to my openness on the web, but I'm just not that concerned with people finding out about my browsing habits. I like the idea of targeted marketing that's specific to my likes and browsing history.

Anyone bored enough to spy on my activity will really have to prove their boredom with my online activity. ;)

Sounds like an interesting tool, Leo. Balancing the line between automating your Twitter feed while still being able to have it feel personable is hard to do. At the same time, what's the point in sending out personable tweets at times when your target audience isn't listening?

Scheduling all those tweets can be a real chore, and letting someone else handle that for you is very attractive. Making sure all those tweets don't come flooding your follower's streams at once is a nice feature.

I think we've got to a point where we're used to getting all these tools for free, and when the Twitter interface is much better than it's ever been. I'm not sure the pain is enough to convince many to open their wallets for this small convenience.

Thanks for sharing information about the tool with us.

I think you're right, Bojan. Passion will take you so far, but it has to be supported with a habit of writing.

I'm particularly prone to routines myself, and this has been my greatest area of struggle as a blogger. I like the idea of forcing yourself to write for a prolonged period of time to develop that habit.

It's something I just committed to in my crazy insane 90 day blog promotion challenge. It's either going to kill me or make me a much better blogger.

Here, in Texas, it's just as likely to be sunny and 80 degrees as it is to be overcast and 30 degrees. Sometimes, that happens in the same week. What we can do down here is stay more active. It's something I need to do much more of since I am in front of this computer so often.

Hmm... I'm a big proponent that everyone is called to the work they do. Unfortunately, only a few ever follow that calling and end up in "jobs." Wouldn't it be wonderful if the title was Why Blogging is as Great as Your Everyday Job? You highlighted the benefits of blogging for a living well though. :)

You've really got me thinking about your first point. I don't think I would ever notice this. If I did, I'm not sure I would make this connection. It makes perfect sense now that you've pointed it out, and it will be something I pay much closer attention to in the future.

I've never used a matchmaking site. I was hitched long before they were available. I'm not sure that I would have used them even if they were though, but not because of any stigma that may be associated with them. I'm intrigued by how deep their compatibility matrices are. It's likely to be more thought than the average person puts into the decision to date someone though. I just preferred to know someone in person a while before I ever started dating them.

Matchmaking has been around for quite some time. Every time I see one of these commercials, I hear "matchmaker, matchmaker make me a match" from Fiddler on the Roof go off in my head. One of these companies claims that 1 on 5 relationships start through online matchmaking now. That seems high, but what do I know? When it comes time for my son to start dating and find a mate, it's hard for me to get excited about him searching online for the right girl. If that's how God leads her to him though, so be it.

I'm not sure why people miss the point that Biblical principles for relationships work similar to the laws of nature. Gravity doesn't cease it's hold on us as we enter the doors of the choice, so why should the Biblical example of Christ training His disciples not also be applicable to how a leader train their team? Maybe they are just objecting to the titles?

Anyway, I left my real comment on Rod's site. It just bothers me to see these same type comments left on multiple posts. I thought I would stick up for you. ;)

There really isn't a comeback for “Being Christians ourselves and being convinced by your proposal, we don’t believe we will be around to publish your book!” is there? It does seem odd that being a Christian publisher you would include the first two items on your list.

I assume this is meant to distinguish the crackpots from the sincere people who believe God has led them to write a book or to contact you. I can imagine that you receive quite a few proposals from people that expect you to act unquestionably when told they were sent by God.
