1. Namecheap Coupon Code for April 2009
First, I deeply apologize for the huge delay in conveying this information to you. To be honest, I was so much swamped that I forgot to broadcast it at the beginning of April. But as the saying goes, "better late than never". Hopefully, you would still be able to make good use of it. You can get the coupon here!
Again I deeply apologize for the delay. I would see to it that this doesn’t happen again in future!
2. I Discovered 2 Cool WordPress Plugins
Here are they:
I) Pretty link
An URL-shortening plugin for WordPress users. You can even say that it is a plugin for creating short links similar to those generated by services such as TinyURL, except that the links are hosted on YOUR server instead of a third party server! You can use it as an ad tracker or a URL shortener. Personally I haven’t used it yet, but I thought that since many affiliates use WordPress for publishing content, this plugin would come handy. Two advantages of using this plugin, as it seems to me, are:
a) It saves you money (that you would have invested in an ad tracking software/service)
b) It is more reliable than Tinyurl. Since the links are hosted on your own server, you have full control over them. As such, you don’t need to worry about your links becoming dysfunctional in future (something that is not uncommon with services like Tinyurl), assuming of course that your web host is reliable! ;)
With the help of this plugin, you can limit the length of comments to a certain number of words. People whose comments go over this word-limit would have their comments trimmed down to size. There could be three uses for this plugin:
a) While every one of us welcome comments, discussion and conversations on our blogs, nobody wants any comment to overshadow the article that triggered it. Say that your article length is about 600 words. Guess what would happen if someone posts a 1,000-word comment on your blog? An average visitor might mistake the comment for the article. :P
b) Another reason you may want to limit the length of comments is to discourage spammers. From my experience, I have found that spammers usually post extremely long comments (although a few spammers are smarter creatures) and more often than not, their comments are full of nothing except junk links and keywords! :(
c) Yet another reason you would want to put a word-limit on comments is to discourage unnecessary and mindless rambling. When people know they have only so many words to express themselves, they would focus on writing useful and precise comments instead of wasting words. It is a good way to tell the commenters that you don’t appreciate your real estate being wasted on trivial, useless rambling and ranting.
I hope you would find both these plugins useful!
3. A Tiny Guide for Subscribers of Angela's Backlink Membership
Read this only IF you are subscribed to Angela's backlink builder membership. Sometime back, under the influence of a certain ebook, I learned to think out of the box. Such out of the box thinking led me to view each thing in a different way than others would. I have been a subscriber of Angela's membership ever since October 2008 and over the months I have discovered a cool way to gain even more mileage from the 30 high PR backlink sites you are delivered each month.
I have written a tiny guide explaining it in details, and I am sure it would benefit you. I can guarantee that right now you are leaving a lot of $$$ on the table by using only half the resources available to you. This is something you can avoid by reading this 6-page guide. Download it here!
Until next time… oh, and please don’t forget to leave a nice comment on my blog. It encourages me to keep writing such awfully long emails! :D
