Today I want to share a Facebook tip that I’m sure many ProBlogger readers will already know, but which I am sure some have not heard about. Every single time I share it, I get “wow, I never knew that!” comments.
It’s all to do with how Facebook lets you customise your status updates when sharing links on your Facebook page.
OK – so here’s what happens when you add a link into the status update on your Facebook page before you hit ‘post’.

This year marks 10 years of my blogging career, and after starting several women’s blogs (some successful, some not), and being an avid reader of them myself, I’ve learn the key elements in what makes a blog “make it” or not. Here they are.

Our previous article describes each of these superpowers with examples from Intuit, Sephora and others.

Discomfiting StatisticsWhat’s Wrong with Millennial Employment, in Three ChartsFortuneSometimes the U.S. government’s exhaustively and exhaustingly dry reports yield startling results, as Fortune discovered. A Department of Education study of college graduates shows, for example, that the wage gap starts early: Four years out of college, male graduates were already making much more than their female counterparts, even if you control for field of study and other factors.
