I’m back from our few days away. Thanks to everyone for your well wishes for our little break. It was a nice time away although we had some pretty below average weather and I’ve come back with the flu unfortunately.
I hope you enjoyed the mini-archives series that I ran – was it something people found helpful? Your honest feedback is always appreciated.
Now I’m home I’ll get back into some ‘normal’ blogging here at ProBlogger over the coming few days. To start with – here are a few links from the past few days – I’m sure there will be more that I need to catch up on but here’s something to start with):
- WordPress.com now allows domain registration and mapping (so now you can use WP.com as a platform on your own domain for $10 per year or $25 if you need a new domain) – very very cool – watch out TypePad!
- Fast Company writes How to Launch a Career With Your Blog

- Paul Stamatiou has a quickie tutorial on how to embed a Flickr Slideshow on your blog

- Do you want to add a job board to your blog (like mine)? You might like to check out the free JobCoin service that will help you do it.
- Adrian wrote a post on how he’s culled his RSS News Reader list by 40. It’s interesting to get an insight into how people decide who to subscribe to (and unsubscribe) – how do you make those sorts of decisions?
