Blog From Evernote With Postach.io

For those of you really know me should not that I'm a serious advocate of Evernote. It's my one-stop shop for doing just about everything. Now I'm not going to sit here and outline of list of the many different uses for Evernote (I'd be here all day and I ain't got time for that). One of the uses I take advantage of DAILY in Evernote is draft blog posts other articles. I include formatting, images, links, and all the other intricacies related to your typical blog post, then break down...

Closing Out 2013 Black Enterprise’s Black Blogger Month Acknowledgements

Getting My Speak On

Probably one of my self-inflicted pet peeves is self-promotion. I need to do it more. Somebody somewhere said "You are your biggest cheerleader." That sounds pretty lame, so I prefer the quote "Nobody is going to take care of you better than you." So I just wanted to drop a quick line and let you all know that I don't just run a tech site - I also get my speak on as well (now THAT sounded pretty lame)...

Keep It Short – Mobile Blogging Tips & Tricks

Probably the number one reason why I don't blog more than I already do is that I'm lazy long-winded - I feel the need to tell you everything you need to know instead of presenting the basics to get you started. One of the ways I plan to combat that is by using other blog formats and blogging more from a tablet and smartphone. In order to do that, there have to be some changes in my thought process and methodology, as well as adding gadgets, and apps/services into the...
