Life Hack Blogs Year in Review

One of my favourite things about the end of the year is the lengthy roundups that people create of the top blog posts over the course of the year. Some lists are short, only having a few links to their most prized articles, while others are laundry lists of nearly every post each month. Either way, these lists can be great tools to find some of the best life hack and productivity tips.

Here are some lists from a few life hack blogs:

Best of Awake@TheWheel 2009
Get Rich Slowly’s Greatest Hits (2009 Edition)
Best of Art of Manliness 2009
The 90 Best Lifehacks of 2009: The Year in Review
The Essential Zen Habits of 2009
Mental_floss: Our Top 5 Stories of 2009

If you are wondering where the LifeSnips year in review is, I’ll remind you that we’ve only been around for four months now, but here are some stats from our first quarter in existence and, hopefully, some insight on what you can expect form LifeSnips in 2010.

Thanks to the great writing staff here, we’ve had 170,000 unique visitors, and 211,000 page views. Over fifty people have found us from searching for our name in search engines. We’ve had as many as 217 RSS subscribers following our feed, and we’ve published over 50 posts. LifeSnips is one of the only blogs in the Life Hack niche to track the stats and rankings of the other blogs in its own niche, a helpful, value-added script that gets a fair bit of traffic, and hopefully gives those other sites some new readers as well.

I am looking forward to an amazing 2010, and I hope you’ll all stick around. If you have come across a productivity, lifestyle tips, life hack blog with its own 2009 roundup, please let us know in the comments below.

How To Publish Your Book With Createspace

Many people are using the power of the internet to write and publish their own books. This cuts out the middle man of using an agent and a publisher and allows authors to receive higher royalty payments. However, self publishing can be daunting and knowing the ins and outs of publishing can be hit or miss.

I have found a company, owned by Amazon, that has a great reputation and can get your book published, with a proof ready within 1 week of you submitting it for review. I have learned over the last few weeks: writing the book, designing a cover, preparing a manuscript, proofing etc.

In this article I will show you what I have learned and hopefully you can be one step ahead of the game when you publish your own book.

There are 5 components to getting a book published using Createspace.com: [Read more...]
