Work From Home? You’re On This List

There are a number of significant benefits to working from home, and similar traits that each entrepreneur share. Everything from never setting an alarm clock, to hardly driving your car enough to justify getting an oil change. Although, it’s every three months, whether you drive it or not. Michael Kwan put together a list of things you do (or don’t do) when you start working from home. Fortunately, I could relate to all of them. Going to the zoo in the middle of afternoon for me, is just like going grocery shopping. The only people in the store are mothers with small children.

Top 5 Firefox Addons for Bloggers

Most bloggers swear by using either Safari or Chrome, but a fair number of them still use Firefox. One of the great things about this browser is the ability to implement addons to better your surfing experience. The top 5 Firefox addons for bloggers has recommended a couple tools I hadn’t heard of before and will have to give a shot. Previously, I only had the Live Page Rank addon installed, which tells you the Google Page Rank of each page you visit. It’s not on the list, but the Alexa addon is a good one too. It’s self-explanatory and tells you the Alex rank of each site you visit (download).

6 Reasons Why E-mail Lists are Making a Comeback

E-mail lists have always been big for an online business, whether you’re a professional blogger, or an Internet marketer. Communicating with your audience/customers via e-mail is the most accessible way to get your message across. However, in light of the recent trends involving RSS, Twitter and Facebook, many bloggers have put e-mail lists on the backburner (including myself). A few months ago I put my Aweber account on hold, because I was utilizing social media more than I was sending out e-mails. The good thing about Aweber is that they retained all of my account information, lists, subscribers etc., and only charge me $4.99/month as opposed to the regular fee. The only downside is that you can’t accept new subscribers during this time. ProBlogger.net touches on this issue more in depth.

    Work from home and after waking up go straight to the computer and have your first shower just before lunch is usually my routine 😉 Nice post! I also love using aweber!

    I love Chrome, but hate that more sites don’t consider users other then FF or (gasp) IE. Chrome is very convenient and well laid out, but needs to be more accepted in the mainstream!
