Automation...I love it! Set it and forget it? I'm all about that. Automation may be seen by some as lazy, but I see it as smart. Why waste time on things that are considered busy work when you can be using that time to work on more pressing tasks that you HAVE to be directly involved in? It's the 21st century...if you're not using some form of automation in your day to day blog/biz functions, you need to start...like...today. Computers can be your personal assistant when the money isn't flowing to pay a human just yet. If you are manually performing any of these 9 tasks, you should stop and hand them over to your robot friends!
