Advice of the Day for April 6, 2013!

Posted by phduffy on 2013-04-06 15:14:17
Scroll to the bottom for an announcement regarding the Advice of the Day. But first, the advice:

And now for the announcement. Today is the 10 year anniversary of the Advice of the Day (yes, really). Since the time I started the advice, I've changed a lot, and so has the internet. I no longer an under employed single guy, but an over worked but happy guy in a loving long-term relationship. This has meant much fewer AOD emails than in the past. As mentioned, the internet's also changed - it's not hard to find multiple sites sharing links to other fun sties, all over the internet. I imagine that virtually every link I send out has been seen by at least one person on the mailing list first.

Starting this Monday, the Advice of the Day will return to its more or less regular (every weekday) schedule. Some weeks I might only get 4 days, and some weeks I'll be on vacation, but the goal will be to provide you with at least 4 AODs a week, containing the same mix of genuine advice, terrible advice, and stupidity that you've come to expect.

As always, you can find all of the advice at
