  • You learn to repeat yourself in creative ways
  • WordPress and SEO become obsessions
  • You steal ideas like a professional cat burglar
  • Trolls begin to stalk you… in your dreams
  • Traffic has a completely different meaning than commuter congestion
  • Did I mention stealing repurposing?
  • Deadlines become Kind-Of-But-Not-Really-Deadlines
  • You carry excuses around in a burlap sack
  • Repeat when necessary
  • Did you know that quotations can become entire blog posts?
  • When all else fails: repeat yourself
  • Guest bloggers are like angels of mercy from heaven
  • Sometimes you just need to cry
  • You get used to people calling you an idiot
