Op Shop Directory Rant

Op Shop Directory Rant

I was almost going to write this on the actual Op Shop Directory blog page, but thought against it.  The website has the most traffic out of all the sites I have or help run. It comes up well in google searches and the rebuild of the site helped out and the numbers...
The Chris and Sam Podcast Website Update

The Chris and Sam Podcast Website Update

It appears pre-programming a bunch of tweets every time a Chris and Sam Podcast comes out is paying off, well not in money terms but in people checking out the podcast. When this podcast started it was the first one I had done and I learnt a lot on how things work...
