Monika is looking to do a little travel and wanted some airfare deals.
AirFareWatchDog.com – One of the rare travel sites that tracks Southwest’s deals. A site I highly recommend!
TravelGrove.com – When you combine this website with AirFareWatchDog.com you create quite the comprehensive travel search.
Farecast.com – This site is an airfare prediction website. Farecast uses a statistical method to see if you should buy now or wait?
Yapta.com – In case Farecast doesn’t work for you Yapta will track your airfare prices even after you buy a ticket. Did you know you could get a refund or travel credit when prices drop after you’ve bought a ticket? The airlines offer this policy only if you buy on the airline website (and they want you to have the confidence to buy early). Yapta alerts people when prices drop so they can get these refunds and credits from the airlines.
Blah, blah, blah, everyone is doing it. The web is littered with unoriginality. Find what makes you unique and stay with it. Vow to be unique. Example:3 Doors Down—A True SEO Music Video Ü
2. Blog imperfectly
Give yourself a time limit when writing a post and then publish it when you hit the deadline. Published imperfection is progress. Unpublished perfection is worthless. Vow to have flaws. Example: My Imperfect Plan
3. Blog the future
Anyone can tear apart the past. Look into the future and take a chance on what might not be. Not only does it help you look for possible opportunities, but it also gives your blog unique perspective. Vow to guess the future. Example: The Day Search Engines Died!
