+CoSchedule Powerful #contentmarketingstrategy in The 26 Surprising Rules Of Great Content Creation

#13 Blame no one. You wrote a blog post that bombed, started a flame war, was grossly inaccurate, was hilariously bad, caused people to unsubscribe from your email list, or was pistol-whipped by search engines? Your fault. You wrote it. Not a big deal. Move on and keep writing.

Good tweetable stuff!

No, not so crazy +Mitch Mitchell - I'll confess that I don't get out as much as I used to with respect to shopping, unless I'm hanging out with my daughters and the grandkids. Those guys like to shop ... even the hubbys! I'm content to do the bulk of it online (except for shoes and clothes).  

One thing I'm keenly interested in is using mobile point of sale iPads for service businesses, esp. consulting, artists, handyman ... carrying around the ability to get paid wherever the service is delivered.
