Hope everyone had a good and safe weekend. Found some interesting and useful articles the past few days and now sharing it with you in this week’s edition of Weekend Roundup. Enjoy!
- Have you decided to ditch your old PC and get a new one? Pinoy Tech Guy’s latest article talks about the things you need to consider when upgrading your PC.
- Blogging Mix has 11 blogging tips on writing for non native English speakers. Good read for bloggers who don’t have English as their native tongue or for anyone who are having difficulties with writing in English.
- PinoyMoneyTalk warns PayPal users about a new type of PayPal email scam. It’s always good to be cautious when it comes to these things. If you get an email from someone you don’t know and you’re not sure about it, then just ignore it. Better safe than sorry!
- Recently lost PageRank because of paid links? Jam shares this WordPress plugin she recently found that automatically puts a “rel=nofollow” attribute to all paid links. Before you install this plugin, you’ll have to make sure you won’t be violating any TOS with your affiliate programs.
