Crowdbooster Killing Freemium, Gives Free Alternatives
Crowdbooster??is killing there freemium model, according to Ricky Yean??this is because we started falling behind on our promise to give you the highest quality service and we hated it.??Naturally they don’t want to leave their free customers – who may be unlikely to ever pay – hanging. So they made a list of services where they can get their analytics fix without bogging down the system.https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AiA_xls996Kw…

Changes coming to Crowdbooster: replacing freemium with paid-only subscriptions – Crowdbooster Blog

We have recently made the very difficult decision to discontinue Crowdbooster’s free service and replace it with a paid subscription at $9 a month starting on March 1, 2013. We understand that this is…

Find All Your Stuff

Find All Your Stuff
I’m really missing a gadget which dials home when it’s out of rang of you.
Mike Elgan
Tired of losing stuff? Now you don’t have to.We all lose stuff around the house. Keys. Wallet. And, of course, the TV remote. It is frustrating, time consuming and always seems to happen when we’re running late.Fortunately, low-cost gadgets can eliminate the panicky ransacking process and simply reveal the location of whatever it is you’re looking for. They use wireless technology and in some cases even smart phones. Here are three available now or in the near future.http://www.houzz.com/ideabooks…

People are telling me they are cleaning out their drafts and publishing them after reading this. Blogging is like anything else, you get better the more you do it!
Done is better than Perfect when it comes to blogging

I’m enjoying reading Ekaterina Walter’s new book Think Like Zuck, which is about the five keys to business success that you can learn from Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. In the book, Ek…

Google+ URL Shortening pro-tip

leave a comment »

Jesse Wojdylo
Goo.gl URL Shortener – An Amazing ToolI know most people on here probably have Google Analytics installed on their websites and they miss the opportunity to use this tool with their Google+ page and posts. ??I would suggest using the Goo.gl URL shortener as you can keep up with the clicks to a specific post or page. ??

One feature I would love to add to Goo.gl would be to save a specific link so it does not get buried. ??For those who have never used the service you simply place a URL into the convertor…

Create Documents from GMail Conversations #blogging

leave a comment »

Using GMail daily I hadn’t noticed the item Create a document in the menu before yesterday, I decided to try it out and I really like it. The function allow you to turn an entire conversation into a document which is stored into Google Docs with the push of a button.

GMail menu

The quoted text contains all the included markup, altough it doesn’t include the sender details, it removes all the quoted text it recognizes. What it doesn’t do is truncate the text below the “sig dashes” (“signature cut line”, “sig-marker”, or “sig separator”), which is what I expected.

I create many post based on conversations I see on mailing lists, or other place. This feature makes it easier to collect all the text of the conversation, as the sender is not included it is necessary to through source text to attribute the quotes to the correct person.

Nice feature!

Proof of Concept: Google Docs Mail Merge Form with Text and HTML #wordpress

with one comment

I needed a way to be able to shamelessly plug the posts I recently bundled into the booklet “Write Something” again.In a similar way to the last time I did it in Proof of Concept: Google Docs Mail Merge Form

As I explained before I have set up a system to automatically mail somebody when the enter their address in the form, my issue was that I wanted to add a unique blogpost which they would only be able to get by signing up. Naturally I wanted to style it in the same way the posts are styled in this blog. Again I turned to the documentation, specifically the Class MailApp which I was using to send the mail. Using this documentation I had a starting point. I wanted three changes to the current script:

  1. keep the plain text
  2. add HTML message
  3. add inline images
