If you need to wean yourself off of social media so you can get more work done, there are browser extensions you can install that will either block specific sites, cut off your web access entirely, or block specific content.

Earlier this year I installed a couple extensions to block myself from seeing the Twitter home page and the FB news feed. (This did not work out for me the way I intended, but I do think it has been a net positive.)

    Setting up a bookstore on an author website can be relatively easy. All you have to do is set up an account at a service like Payhip or Gumroad, and integrate that service's buy buttons into your site. These services will process the payment, and deliver the ebooks.

    I wrote a post on this topic this week.
