How to Block a Follower in Blogger

I love having followers, but when they start showing pictures of naked women on their profile photos... it's time to block those followers...

Log in into Blogger, in your Dashboard, next to everyone of your blogs, you can see the followers your blogs have. Just click on the icon and you'll get to a page where you can manage your followers. Click on the follower you want to block and it'll take you to their profile. There you can block that unwanted follower.

Learn English with Jokes

This site contains jokes based on useful grammar points in English. Each joke is followed by a grammar explanation and exercises on the  grammar and key vocabulary from the jokes.

This site is currently being updated and when it's completed there will be more than 70 jokes.  (If you don't see any changes, click the "refresh" button on your browser.) I plan to build this site into the number one (and possibly only) collection of jokes for ESL on the internet.

Failing is Essential

The ratio between success and failure remains pretty constant. To succeed means we must fail. And the more often we fail the more we succeed. The key is to fail frequently and fail fast. Then move on and try something else.
That was the message of Tina Seelig who works at the entrepreneurship center at Stanford. The focus of her NAIS talk was “Innovation as an Extreme Sport”.
