What Can You Do With a Password Protected Blog Post?
I often use password protected blog posts to host PowerPoint slide shows for trainings. Now I challenge you to allow your imagination to expand. Think about a contest, or something else that your readers can enjoy.
When I first started blogging I saw mentions about Blog Carnivals and wanted to host or attend one. What I did not know was how powerful these Blog Carnivals were for networking and learning. You visit the blogs on the host blog and read the posts. Then you comment.
Now I don’t have to tell you how powerful blog comments are on your blog and the links that connect with tblog carnivals, he bloggers blog. That will produce some good link action. Plus you can read about the powerfully insightful and diverse bloggers You can also study how their blogs are designed and how they monetize their sites.
So here is my challenge to you. I am going to post a link to a current Blog Carnival. Please consider doing the following:
I came across this blog post this morning because of my Google Alert on baby boomers. (Hope you set up your alerts also) I clicked on the link and read it with particular interest. But rather than share my insights thought it would be helpful to hear from you.

I came across an excellent post warning about the practice of “vishing”. It is a serious scam. As bloggers we can get almost too comfortable online. We may think we have a lot of awareness and never ever get caught in a scam. That is not true.
Yet, if you are a non-baby boomer blogger or even know someone who is still afriad to do more than play solitary online, this is just the kind of information used as the meat for that statement, “See I told you to keep off that computer”
I just want to add that I found the article that informed me about “vishing” on a blog! Ha So here are a few definitions direct from good old Google definitions. And after the definitions you will see a link to the blog post on “vishing”. Please print it out and share with those who ONLY do emailing.
Definitions of Vishing on the Web:
Vishing is the criminal practice of using social engineering over the telephone system, most often using features facilitated by Voice over IP … en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vishing
