New financial services can keep you secure, or put you at risk
We tech bloggers love to dream about the days when wallets will be a thing of the past—all your credit cards, IDs, business cards, and photos, will be stored on your smartphone. While this can make identity theft more likely if you’re not careful, it can actually be a safer way to do business with the right precautions—after all, you can’t password-protect your wallet. Here are a few ways you can turn your phone into a secure, convenient place to organize your finances.
Password-protect your phone
If this seems like an obvious step, you’ve got the right idea. More and more, smartphones are becoming the main access point for personal and financial information, and setting a PIN is the least you can do to protect yours. It won’t interfere with your ability to accept incoming calls (unless you want it to), and it can be an effective way to keep your credit card information and social networks secure. The odds of guessing a 4-digit PIN are 1 in 10,000, which will at least give you time to shut down your phone if it’s lost or stolen. (Just don’t use your birthday, your bank PIN, or digits from your Social Security number.)
Use long, mnemonic passwords
Unfortunately, most of what you’ve been told about “strong” passwords is inaccurate. While ...

Every month it’s important to take a few steps back and look at your blog from the outside. Sometimes you work on something for so long and it becomes a part of you. This is great, but it can also cloud your judgment because you can’t look at something objectively when you’re too close. You need to decide if everything you have been doing all this time is working as effectively as you’d like. If it’s not then this is the perfect time to make some changes before you waste anymore time on something that isn’t bringing you any results.

Business blogging is different from normal blogging. When you blog for your business, you do it deliberately to promote your business rather than just share your ideas or experiences.
