Have you heard of (or seen) hypotext on websites before? This is an interesting read on a new way to present web content. Of course, as a professional web copywriter, I know most people don't bother to read pages in full, that's why I always get to the point quickly and present the content in short paragraphs with meaningful subheadings. But this "hypotext" functionality is new to me. I wonder if it'll take off. What do you reckon?
Our research shows that only one in five people read web content word for word. Majority scan, skip and only read key items of interest.

Looking for suggestions for handy browser plugins.

What are your favourite plugins/extensions (for Chrome or Firefox) and what do you use them for? 

I'm setting up my new laptop and think there are probably more good browser extensions beside the 4 or 5 I currently have.

Thanks in advance for sharing your favourites.

Thanks for those +Anna Butler. The ones I've already got are:
- Buffer
- Awesome Screenshot
- Hola (to bypass geo-restrictions on websites)
- Mozbar (for quick SEO info for the site you're on)

Niagara Falls
View of the American Falls and the Canadian Horseshoe Falls from Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada.

Photos don't do the falls justice. Video's a bit better. But there's nothing like being there and experiencing it yourself. LOVED IT!

Hi +Mark Davidson Davidson, this video was taken from the Canadian side. I agree it's much better than the American side. I read mixed reviews about that revolving restaurant so we decided not to go, but I'm sure the views from there are great.

Bonjour! We've made it to Quebec City (from Toronto via Ottawa and Montreal). La vieille ville est très, très belle!

Haha. Someone just found my website by searching for "the website that writes for you". My site must have disappointed. It doesn't do that.

Google Alerts - does it work properly?

Who uses Google Alerts? Does it work well for you? One of the alerts I have is for my own name. I hardly ever get an alert, but I got one now. Google told me about my own Google+ update yesterday. Sure, that has my name on it, but why would Google suddenly decide to alert me about my own Google+ updates? It wasn't a particularly popular update or anything. Mistake? Or is Google suddenly indexing Google+ updates better? Any thoughts?

SEO tools worth using

This new +Search Engine Land post has all the classic SEO tools you're probably already using (or should be!), but also some that you may not have heard of. The Soovle and Ubersuggest keyword tools are new to me, and I'll make sure to check those out.

I just check out Soovle. That's a pretty cool little gadget.

What are your favourite browser plugins (Chrome/Firefox) that you use regularly - and what do you use them for?

I'm setting up my new laptop and I'm sure there are more plugins that I'd find handy, besides the 4 or 5 I currently have.

Looking forward to your suggestions. Thanks!

I've worn my Fitbit Flex every day for over a year, have never shared any stats (who cares), but I was amazed to find out I walked 108 km this past week (averaging 17 km per day!).

My average number of steps was 23,000 a day, while usually I manage to just hit my 10,000 goal most days.

I'm travelling and we're walking around a lot each day, that's why. :-)

I love exploring new places on foot. And getting/staying fit at the same time!

It's basic. But it's clear, fresh and modern. And I like it. What to you think?
 
Finally: A fresh new look for my 7-year-old website. 
WordPress, new colours, and of course: mobile-friendly.
