Thank you so much for sharing your story, +Jason Darrell ! This is impressive!
 
The painful journey of a wannabe writer
- in (quite) graphic detail

At the beginning of the year, I answered a +MyBlogU interview. The title was: 
If you work from home because of medical problems or physical challenges that make it hard for you to work outside the home, I want to hear your story.

Boy, am I qualified to answer that?! So I did.

The result is a great post by +Erica Martin on her blog, here: http://workathometipsonline.blogspot.co.uk/2015/02/how-to-work-at-home-when-you-have.html

This photo album is a summary of the less graphic shots my better half and I have taken over the last 3½ years. I'll not go into the details here. They're all on Erica's post.

The content is something I've wanted to share for such a long time, but hosting it on my own web properties was too maudlin even for me.

I'd just like to thank Erica, +Ann Smarty and the #MyBlogU  team. If it wasn't for their collaborative environment, this chapter of my life might never have seen digital ink. It's a weight off my shoulders that someone else has, well, shouldered the responsibility.

If I disappear for days on end, which I'm prone to every now and again, one of these conditions is more than likely the reason.

Thanks again.

p.s. Erica, if you'd like to use any of the images from the album to flesh out your post, feel free. But, yeah - I'd fully understand why not if you don't. ;)

"Because he’ll never be #1 for those short tail phrases again." Speak for yourselves. Ive done that with Penguin sodomized sites in the past and ill do it again. Feel free to contact me if you want to find out how it is done. I have proof. Its not hard and doesn't involve "Content Marketing".

Tools to create tweetable quotes: Smarter twitter marketing!

#twitter #wordpressplugins #socialmediamarketing  
I share almost everything I like and read on Twitter. I think Twitter is the link-friendliest network. I can share only 2-3 links on Facebook (not to be too annoying and linky) but Twitter is never tired of links. But tweeting an article title is boring: More often, when reading, I feel like tweeting what it’s said in the body. Tweeted quotes stand out, they always trigger an active discussion...

Looking for G+ active users to participate in the expert round-up! There are two questions. If you want to be featured, please contribute your answers here: http://myblogu.com/interviews-gallery?id_interview=212

[Please share with those who may be interested in contributing!]

After it was announced that Google was going to split Google Plus into two products (photos and streams), there have been a never-ending stream of assumptions. Rumor has it, Google is going to close G+ eventually. Looking at past Google experiments, this rumor has the right to exist! So what's your prediction? What's going to happen to the social network?

Yep just persistent rumor, nothing more! But after they've closed Google Reader, I'll believe in anything :)
