How many requests do you get each month from potential guest authors? Don't you wish there was a easy way to check out what they are writing on other blogs!?
Well, with +BuzzSumo you can easily find their other guest posts and keep track of new ones as they are published. 
In my latest course I show you exactly how it's done. Head over to the new training site and sign up for the course: http://ileanesmith.com/buzzsumo

A Portable Washing Machine That Doesn't Need a Drop of Electricity! I want this now but looks like I will need to wait until next year to get my hands (I mean foot) on one...

If camping seems like fun but you’d prefer if roughing it wasn’t so rough, the Drumi from Yirego is a compact portable washing machine that can clean around six or seven garments without the need for a power outlet, a generator, or even a sunny day to feed a solar panel.

I always watch the weekly updates from +Barry Schwartz and just realized that I never shared them with you before, so let's fix that! Barry does a great job of covering the search engine news for the week and his roundup is very helpful. 
This week he shared the news that Bing is now working on a Mobile Friendly Algorithm and much more!
