Shameless self promotion!

If you like the things I write about find me on Twitter and say so! Or if you don’t then you can tell me to sod off!

I have to get better at Twitter for class so I’m doing a cross promotion thing.

If you don’t want to ever seen non-journalist stuff then block Nonthematic post on Savior and you won’t see any more.

Sloppy writing and buzzword use. Hop onto the bigger name.

I’m reblogging this from my personal blog because it’s such an good example of terrible headline writing and SEO.
