"The Firefly Maiden", a haunting, elegant tale of old Japan written by author +Lesley Smith is now available for you to read - for free!

No email sign ups, no conditions, no downloads, just a good story. Give it a look.

Personally, I'd like to see more promotions like this -- unlike a book trailer, longform content gives me a chance to experience the writer's style, see if I like it.
No one else could see the ghostly maiden surrounded by fireflies.

I <3 the guys at WPMU! The only thing I would do is clarify that the plugins and themes traditionally are held in the wp-content folder and images are in uploads, so it is IMPORTANT to have those backed up frequently. If you have nothing else, having that folder and the database will get you migrated with very little loss. 

Also, in the wp-config file that they mentioned, also make sure that the $table_prefix = 'wp_'; entry has a prefix that matches the prefix of the database (you are usually advised to change this from the default 'wp_' you see above).

Interesting graphic to get you started with self publishing.  However, I disagree with the recommendation to buy blog posts, also with buying spots on Bookbub or similar services.  You should never pay for a blog post (or a review).  And, paid newsletter promotions are very effective -- but work best for established authors who have reviews on their books.  Better to spend the time (and money!) on building your reader base and developing your email list.

Fascinating study on how to change strongly held opinions: Ask for an explanation
Are most people's political opinions based on information or illusion? Commentator Tania Lombrozo discusses recent research on confronting our own lack of understanding when it comes to questions of complex public policy.
