How To Start Your Blog With A Bang I receive questions often from people who have just started their first blog and are looking for tips.

While recently at a friendly gathering of young hooligans, I found myself engaged in a lighthearted debate on how the advent of the internet is affecting the brains of the youth.

How social video is changing online advertising Social media is changing the way brands use online advertising.
