Have you cleaned your Facebook apps?

Facebook apps are very easy to add to your profile. Your friends invite you to some. Marketers want you to like them and get specials. Maybe you saw an ad and thought that's cool, I will sign up.

Well, I was shocked at how many apps I had activated in my account. Most of them I recognized, but some I didn't. Others I had a vague recollection of using many years ago.

Do You Overdeliver?

The 3rd Earn 1k a Day seminar just ended, and I have to say that as always the event over delivered. If you have a chance to go next year (and if they have the event again), it would be the best money you spent all year. I don't promote many affiliate products, but when I know the people involved, and I mean personally, I will. I have been a member of Earn 1k a Day for a while, and recommend it highly. In fact more than highly. Check the links at the bottom of this post to get an idea of what is there, and take action.

Using irFanView to batch edit images

I recently decided to repurpose a product and turn it into a book and Kindle version. The Kindle version had no real issues with images since they get down sampled anyway, but the printed book needed to have the images at at least 300 dpi (dots per inch). If not the images would almost certainly be grainy, and I don’t want that. Most screen capture software saves the images at 96 dpi or sometimes 72 dpi. I started using Photoshop and taking each image and making it 384 dpi by using the bicubic sampling functions. It was a pain.

Using BackWPup for WordPress backups

Many of you are looking for a free way to do back ups on WordPress, and even though I've got some scripts to back up whole directories and that on my website, it's really nice to be able to split each WordPress instance or website into its own backup, just in case one goes bad or you need to move it. I've been using BackWPup. I think that's how they pronounce it, but it's WordPress back up plug-in for a year or so now, and it's only gotten better. You can look for it. Just type in BackWPup.
