Hey everyone. Thought I'd ask here as I know G+ loves a good old puzzle. I published this post on Monday the 7th of December (this week) and it's showing up in Google with the 19th of September. I've never seen this before - anyone have any ideas why?

Steve Jobs didn't want us communicating face to face?

I found this paragraph in an article by Richard Brody in today's New Yorker really interesting. Do you agree?

I think he succeeded greatly. Just look at a group of teenagers hanging out in a group.

The fog this morning made golf pretty eerie. Lots of fun avoiding other players!

This is why I love South Australia. With a 5 minute drive and a 20 minute walk I can be at a place like this. It's 20 minutes from the city and 40 from the best beaches in the world. Very grateful.

This is something I've really been noticing lately: a lot of bloggers don't realise plugins can be a huge issue. 
I absolutely love WordPress plugins. Let's be honest – it's the plugins that make WordPress as powerful, popular and flexible as it is. Want some more security? There's a plugin for that. Want a floating box that captures email subscribers? Plugin for that. Want to rank better on Google?

+Darren Jansen I think you're half right...I think people want to socialise around topics they are interested in. G+ is an excellent medium for that.

+Ryan Saplan Is it useful? For me personally, the answer is YES!, but like any social platform, it comes down to how you use it. Some social platforms don't work for me, because I don't like the way they work. But that doesn't mean they aren't useful for others.

This website sold for $15,000... would you buy it?

Sometimes I go over to Flippa and have a look at what is selling and how much people are willing to pay for certain blogs and websites.

Recently a website called EcocentricMom sold for $15,000 despite making a net loss in February of this year.

When you sell a website you have to post a pretty complete and honest listing of all the financials, traffic details and the story of the website. As such it's a good way to learn about what people are doing and what makes a website valuable.

Head over and have a look at the listing using the link below and then leave a comment letting me know whether you'd buy it (if you had money to spend on buying websites).

Really curious to know what your process is.

Introduction
When I was in college I sold a blog for 5-figures. That was when I first realized how powerful a medium blogging could be.

I now work full-time from home using blogging and internet marketing and share my strategies and experiments on BlogTyrant.com.

Blog Tyrant has a wonderful community (known as the Tyrant Troops) which are a huge source of information and advice - often better than the articles themselves! Hope to see you there.

Delicious vegan food that even non-vegans will love. The cold brew is an amazing coffee. Highly recommend if you're down that end of Perth.

Shino has an incredible skill for making you feel relaxed and welcome. Her massage style is quite unique and she has an obvious skill for finding your problem areas and working on them. I always sleep incredibly after having a massage! Highly recommend.

One of my favourite new places to come and sit with the laptop for hours. Big warehouse space, not too busy, and the perfect creamy coffee you only get from the best coffee makers.

I recently saw Triton from Active Bodies Physiotherapy to get help with a persistent forearm injury, possibly caused by my life as a professional laptop athlete. Small disclaimer: I've been friends with Triton for a few years but he was highly recommended by my housemate and fiancee who have both seen him as well. Given that we had a prior friendship I sort of assumed the appointment would be fairly casual and low key. In reality I received the most professional and competent physiotherapy appointment I've ever had (and I've had a LOT) - the initial assessment, treatment and education blew me away. He also sends an exercise program to your iPhone afterwards using his own MyPhysio App. The best thing is that Triton is an athlete as well and understands the issues you get with training and the fact that you don't want to wait around for months to get back into it. Highly recommend.

I first met Mark (the owner) when he was working as a travel agent at a different company. But when he left to start his own agency with his wife I, and a lot of his other customers, followed him over without hesitation. It's been awesome to watch RoundAbout Travel flourish over the years (10 staff as of 2014!) and they've never forgotten what made them so good in the first place: incredible knowledge and customer service. Mark and his team have booked me and my family tickets to India, China, Borneo and around Europe. They always fight to get you the best route and, most importantly, are ultra-responsive if you ever run into problems overseas. Can't recommend them enough.

I first used James Field on recommendation from a family friend. Since then he has been my go-to photographer for around a dozen commercial projects over the past five years - both photos and videos. Each time James has been professional, funny and extremely attentive to whatever situation we have been in (some more corporate than others). The end result is always stunning photography or video delivered ahead of schedule. I have and will continue to recommend James to anyone looking for a wedding or commercial photographer around Australia.

Stopped in here by chance looking for a place to work and have a good coffee. Incredible sandwiches and (surprise) panini-thingys filled with expensive looking ingredients. All tasted good, all friendly staff.
