Halloween was just recently, and in the spirit of entrepreneurship (and in Halloween, I suppose), I decided to carve a pumpkin in memory of Steve Jobs. I’m sure by now you’re aware that Steve Jobs had recently passed away, and while reflecting back on technology and seeing how far advanced we have come with all the gadgets we have these days, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to show my appreciation, and my artistic abilities.
My first ever pumpkin carving, as shown on the right, lit up. Seriously, my first ever.
That was one of the highlights of October for me. I had a lot of fun doing it and enjoyed getting a little messy. The end result was totally worth it. Unfortunately, it didn’t last forever. They never do.
Looking back on last month’s blog posts, while they may not be as epic as my pumpkin carving, I’m sure you you’ll agree that they’re worth reading. At least I hope so. 😉
Let’s take a look at them.

Here are some blog posts I’ve found from other bloggers I follow that I hope you will find helpful. I encourage you to take some time to read these as well.
Every month, Deneil Merritt posts an income report, similar to the ones you’ll find here. What’s different about his income reports is that they include 30 other blog income reports as well, which includes mine each month. Definitely worth checking out and seeing how other blogs are doing in the industry.
Daniel Scocco points out some important no-no’s when emailing a blog owner to pitch a guest post. I find it quite comical as I every now and then get something similar to the one he mentions in the post. If you ever want to get accepted as a guest blogger, you definitely want to read Daniel’s post and take some notes.
If you’ve been following any of the Occupy Wall Street protest (I haven’t) or at least know what it’s about (I do), David over at SEO-Writer has a pretty funny Occupy parody called Occupy Google. It’s a video interview (sound only) and worth checking out if you want a good laugh, or if Google is treating you unfairly and you demand that your website is ranking in the top 10! Ha!
That’s all for now, folks.
