A new article at ragan.com makes a connection between blogging and beer. I’m sure your thinking beer?! Why BEER?! The article stated that we consume blogs and beers at about the same rate. Each week, the average American has 4.2 drinks and reads 4.1 blogs (sources: Gallup, Hubspot). The connection between beer and blogging is different yet intriguing, especially if you are a beer connoisseur. Check out the article and let me know if your blog is a light beer, IPA, stout or a keg?

Google Reveals New Gmail Look

On Wednesday Google revealed the new look and automatic labels for Gmail on the Web, as well as in Gmail’s Android and iOS apps. With this update, the new default tabes are: Primary, Social, Promotions, Updates, and Forums. My favorite part about the new features are you can drag-and-drop messages between the tabs and Google will automatically “learn” how you want them filtered.

Don’t worry if you don’t like the new Gmail look you can switch back to the old Gmail look using the drop-down menu that appears when you mouse over your inbox.

Will you be using the old or new Gmail look?

Until next time….
