'via Blog this'
One very smart application for the successful blogger that I copied and pasted as it says it all. Some URL's are so long and it is so very easy to make a mistake when pasting and then you have effectively lost the link. So I thought I would set up TinyURL on my toolbar and in the process share with my lovely followers. This is not a paid advertisement and no tree's were harmed in the production of this blog.
