Usually green is the color that represents money, at least in the U.S.

Today, for just a few minutes, orange represents money – because your time is quite often has more value than you might place on it.

This video explains in simple terms why you see so many sites with that little orange button and how it can save you a pile of time.

The RSS feed button. Explained in plain English.

CommentLuv dishes out the link love

You may notice a new addition to the comment form – “CommentLuv” (No, I didn’t name it).

It’s a little carrot to encourage you to share your thoughts here in the blog.

When you add a comment to the Business is Personal blog, CommentLuv looks at the URL you provide and tries to find a blog feed. If it does, it’ll include a link to your last blog post. IE: a little bit of link love.

FYI, I refuse to use REL=NoFollow (the WordPress default setting for links), which tells Google “ignore the fact that this is an inbound link when calculating the PageRank of the site that the link goes to”. I don’t think it’s a very nice way to treat someone who comments on your blog, so I’ve turned it off.

Look what the Easter Bunny brought: a ping list for your blog

Happy Easter, everyone.

Below, the ping list I’m using with this blog. If you know what a ping list is, maybe there’s a link or 2 in there you aren’t using. If you’re using one (or more) that I don’t have, please make note of that in the comments.

If you don’t know what a ping list is…keep your eyes on this blog,
