Favorite Posts, Mentions, and Top Comments Week of 8December2013

We had a nice week here – lots of work and some fun social stuff.  I also finally learned how to use the Yoast plugin (at least rudimentarily)!  Now I have to go back and add a million (well, 400-some) meta descriptions.  We went to an appreciation dinner for the FPU leaders that was very nice – AND we found out that one of the key players in Republic Wireless attends our church!

Frank finally signed up for Republic Wireless and is having a great experience!  “I just started up with the Republic Wireless Moto X, and have to say it’s the best move I’ve made in a long time. I went from AT&T(WAY too expensive) to T-Mobile(cheaper, but absolutely minimal coverage) to RW. I was at the point where I would accept substandard service for the low cost, but was amazed. Sprint was MUCH MUCH better than T-Mobile, totally comparable – even exceeding AT&T in town(still don’t know about the boonies)… So, all in all, while I was expecting something just tolerable, as far as I’m concerned I’m as pleased as if I had unlimited service with AT&T for a SMALL fraction of the cost. Thanks, Republic Wireless!”  The comment goes on with much more detail and there are a couple follow-ups you should check out!

  1. Thank you Emily for mentioning my poll. I was surprised to see cash back win hands-down.

    Good to hear you learned how to use Yoast. It is a great plugin and can provide good results.
