Five for Friday

Super is right. The perfect combo.

I'm addicted.

You know what’s cool about social media? Posting a question on Twitter to the guru of all things Google Analytics — Mr. Avinash Kaushik of Occam’s Razor — and having him respond by DM immediately, followed by a personalized and thorough email. Avinash gave me some great tips on understanding analytics even more, especially when it comes to your questions about feed readers, keywords and different plugins (see “Analytics Part II: Who, What, When, Where“).

I’ll be posting Part III in the coming weeks, so stay tuned, and please let me know what other questions I can help answer — that’s what my “Ask Me” page is for!

Five For Friday time!

    I’m so torn over the “two space rule” in writing. I was taught many years ago that two spaces were required. It’s so ingrained that I do it without thinking. I’m interested in exploring this one further. I’ve heard people say one is the rule, but then I hear others saying increased white space increases readability.

    Thanks for sharing these! Just what I needed to get me through the last hours of work on Friday.

    I especially found the article about the two space rule interesting, I mean I have never even heard about this controversy. (OK maybe a bit too strong a word…)

    I wonder if this is something that has not carried over to Europe? It could of course be that I am just really bad at taking notice of things…

    The two space rule thing is really buzzing lately. I learned when we first learned typing in 6th grade but by college we were already being told not to use it anymore. It amuses me to see how much controversy it has created.
