Quick Bits

iFlicks software works like iTunes for your video collection on your Mac according to this post on

Blog figures from this report at Pew that I found at this post on Church of the Customer:

  • 8 million American adults say they have created blogs
  • Blog readership jumped 58% in 2004 and now stands at 27% of internet users
  • 5% of internet users say they use RSS aggregators or XML readers to get the news and other information delivered from blogs and content-rich Web sites as it is posted online

BlogKits will match your blog with an advertiser that is looking to advertise to readers of your particular topic.  From the BlogKits blog:

It seems silly to me to think that we can't find other ways to deliver a marketing message in a way that fits directly into each blog's individual niche delivery, while still keeping an ethical line between paid advertisement and blog commentary. After all, in essence, a blog IS content, and good content is powerful, especially if it's niche specific. So as long as the content is on target and provides quality information, there's no reason a blogger shouldn't be able to mix in a marketing message or two, assuming they want to.

Greetings Ross, you have a pretty cool blog here. I was searching for work from home moms. I just started my home business and you can see it at this link - work from home moms. Your post title caught my eye - Quick Bits. I'm just looking for tips on how to be a better mentor. I know that’s not what you’re going on about in this post but I am trying to expand my vocabulary phrases so I can talk to many different personalities. I mean I have to talk to a lot of people and I need to be able to connect with everyone.

Anyways Ross, this helped. Keep it up, I'll be back.
