What I’ve Seen On Online Since I Started Blocking Javascript On My Browser

Years ago, when I wrote my post about blocking newsletter popups, I was feeling pretty smug because I was finally getting back at all those sites that throw popups at you before you ever get to see the content. In the years since, I’ve noticed some things that I thought I’d talk about as a follow up to that original post.

Happy Mitch

First, I’m still a very happy guy. Those of you who visit here know that my ultimate pet peeve when it comes to visiting blogs are annoying popups. Turns out turning off javascript blocks a lot of other nasty bits from other types of sites beyond just blogs; I’m not mad in the least!

How To Gain Access To Your C: Drive On Windows 10

The last time I talked about Windows 10, it was after an update wiped out my operating system. Because I never thought about going to the Microsoft Store in town, I ended up loading Windows 7 instead and I moved on from there.

How we view our hard drives

Recently I read where all updates to Windows 7 were ending, and I decided it was time to go back to Windows 10. However, I also didn’t want automatic updates anymore, so I bought Windows 10 Professional. I got it at a discount; y’all know I wasn’t about paying $199 for it after all these years! 🙂

LinkedIn Posts Experiment; What I Learned…

In my last post talking about the invalidation of the 80/20 rule in promoting one’s content on social media, I mentioned seeing a few people on LinkedIn not only violating stated marketing principles of how often one should post but saw them crushing it in the numbers of responses and activity they were getting.

Not one to sit by idly and wonder how they’re doing it, I decided it was time for a little experiment. I’m going to tell you what I decided to do and the reaction I got to all of it. I’ve kind of figured it out, but the results aren’t up to anything I do or what anyone else actually does. I hope that piques your interest. 🙂

Let’s Talk About That 80/20 Social Sharing Rule

By now most people have heard of the Pareto Principle. In essence, it’s the belief that 80% of consequences comes from 20% of causes. The origin came from Pareto’s recognition that 80% of Italy’s wealth belonged to 20% of the population. He came up with this in 1896, and for over 120 years people have equated it with everything from investing to business and customers to fitness and health.

Over the last few years I’ve seen it being recommended by a lot of bloggers and marketers when it comes to the concept of social sharing. The premise is that if one is trying to market themselves via social media, they’ll get the most benefit by sharing other people’s content 80% and their own around 20%.
