The ability to write 60-100 blog articles a month has required that I come with a very specific blogging process. Not only should my blogging habits allow me to be effective with my time on that one post, but also continue to turn out great content repeatedly. No tips in this episode, but several announcements that you need to check out.

Sucked Into Tech
Last week I was trying to rock my beautiful baby girl to sleep. Poor little one was over tired, so it was talking a little bit longer than normal. Finally, she calmed down but wouldn’t close her eyes! That’s when I started to get bored. I got a weird feeling in the pit of my stomach and I wanted to wake my wife up just to pass me my phone (I didn’t, by the way). I imagine that is what it is like for a smoker to be itching for a cigarette. Just needed to check my notifications, messages, and email. After all, you never know who needs to talk at 1am!
That’s when it hit me: Am I really thinking this? Feeling this way? I’m holding my brand new baby girl, and wishing I had my phone to keep me company? Surely this isn’t me! But the more I thought about it, the more I came to realize that I’ve been sucked into technology and the wonders it offered me.
Have you ever felt this way?
In this generation of electronics and software, the concept of updating your software to ensure that security holes are fixed and the latest and greatest functions are being used, it would seem that this policy should be done to your WordPress platform as well, right? The problem is that WordPress is a VERY public web application that contains much of your brand on it and numerous WordPress plugins have too many conflicting actions that can takedown your website temporarily or completely corrupt your database, ultimately making you lose everything.
In my opinion, WordPress should NOT be automatically updated. If you are of the same mind as me, we have details below on how to fix this.
Monthly 5 Free Fonts – November 2013
Whether you are a regular blogger who wants to come up with great typography for your featured images, a youth worker that needs new fonts for your next flyers, or the worship designer for your slides to push up on the screen, you need to have the right fonts. The hope is that with these better fonts, you will have better displays to create better experiences and designs. Yet, if I preach to use good photo habits, I should help you find them. Thus, once a month we will try to get you some great free fonts to use.
If you have uploaded YouTube videos at all recently, you know that there are four options for the status of the video that you can select: Private, Public, Scheduled, and Unlisted. The first three options are probably pretty explanatory, but how would a blogger, church, or other video producer use this option? Who would want to upload a video that is able to be viewed, but does not come up on your homepage or search results? We have a couple of options that are perfect for you this video status.
