WordPress people! I'm looking for a good, nay, a great option to publish WordPress articles from Markdown, while still retaining the HTML composer (to edit old articles). Suggestions, please?

Building a bunch of micro-niche sites: bad idea, or terrible idea?

"How much time do you honestly spend looking at analytics, seo posts, how much time do you spend chasing trends and have you no idea that if you spent that time on your actual website, you website would probably rock and be amazing???"
Work on your voice, not every one else's ears

It is extraordinarily dumb the way most SEO people pay so much attention to things other than their actual website.
If it were back in the Clinton days the slogan for this would be...

"it's your website, stupid"

I heartily recommend you step away from the analytics, and look at your website and just figure out how it could be better.

How much time do you honestly spend looking at analytics, seo posts, how much time do you spend chasing trends and have you no idea that if you spent that time on your actual website, you website would probably rock and be amazing???

I would start by making sure your webpage follows the Google webmaster guidelines, I would next say you probably should evaluate if you are saying things that hundreds of other people are saying and if you are then you might want to consider saying something else.

I see people advising others to look in their analytics to see what they should write about, or use this resource or that resource to find out what to write about. That is absolutely crazy. If you don't know what you are going to write about, then why the hell write it?

You will succeed if you write about what you want to write about. You will fail if you are looking at other stuff to determine what to write about.

Don't look at analytics for a week and just look at your website. See how it could be better. Think about what you are doing and why you are doing it.  Figure that bit out first before you start exploring other stuff.

Do your website first, do other stuff later.

"I feel badly that they thought investing in domain names was a great way to make easy money and that some of these people spent money before fully learning about domain investing"

A smart, courageous post by +Elliot Silver.

I'm curious: how many of you have tried developing an iOS app before? Have you had trouble getting it accepted into the App Store?
