Are You Letting Your Blog Get Out Of Control?

Is your blog controlling your life? Hugh has some terrific tips for narrowing down the number of people you follow.

Hugh's Views & News

If I had children I would do all I could to make sure they never got out of control.  I do the same with my dog, Toby.  When he was a puppy I took him to training classes and, on the odd occasion when he does disobey me, I put what I learned at those classes into place to make sure he behaves.  Fortunately, I’m pleased to say that he behaves most of the time.

If we can do this with our children and pets, then shouldn’t we also do the same with our blogs?
