Been There, Done That, so you don’t have to!

Changing the Format and the Landing Page for this Blog – finally!

I have owned the domain name and used various hosting providers and Themes for this site over the years.

Literally, I have “Been There and Done That” as it relates to setting up a Blog and trying to get an online business started.

Here are a few more “Tag Lines”:

My current full-time job is Technical Recruiter, and I have been doing that for 15 years.

In addition, I have been managing a few online profiles for local businesses including their websites, Facebook Pages, Twitter Accounts, email Lists and more.

Watch for the new format and content in the days to come!

LINK DIN on Twitter

**This is not Spam or some Scam to get your email address**

If you receive an @ message or DM direct message from @linkdin on Twitter and you are looking around at the Profile and land on this Blog…………..well – you are in the right place!

I am a Headhunter / Recruiter by trade and I use Linked In to find and connect with people.

Many times I cannot use a new InMail or I find it more advantageous to Tweet someone to connect about a job opportunity.

Please @Reply to the @linkdin Tweet or please email me at:  linkdin (at) gmail (dot) com

I will get back to you with the job description and with more information.

Thank you!!!

Comment Spam

I have a couple of WordPress Blogs as Hosted Sites and have been getting killed with Comment Spam. I installed a new Plugin today to see if that helps.

I am using the Growmap Anti-Spam Plugin on another blog, and that worked really well for awhile, but it appears there is a work-around for the Spammers, and now I am getting swamped again on that blog.

I am trying the “Spam Free WordPress” Plugin for this site to see if it is effective.

Growmap is rated 5 stars, and Spam Free WordPress is only rated 4 stars, so we’ll see which one works best.

Twitter Integration

It took awhile, but I worked through the Hosted WordPress to Twitter integration.

Now each new blog post and blog update should create a Tweet on @ReZourceGuy

I remember doing this years ago with a WordPress Blog, but thought the process would have been a bit more “Plug & Play” in 2012.

I had to create API keys and logins and passwords and ‘Oauth’ keys and more just to make sure that blog posts would automatically populate the Twitter Timeline for

Let’s hope it works, after all of that effort! :-)


Still trying to figure out why I am getting hundreds of comments from bloggers overseas with their backlinks!?!

I went back to tonight and refreshed that Profile and put up a couple of Tweets about this blog and the “Follower Bots”.

I cannot figure what is attractive about – especially now – I have removed all of the ads and the links and it is a stripped down WordPress site, but I am still getting bombarded with Comments.

You think this would be a good problem, if I wanted to monetize the site, but I had ads running on the former version of the website, and never earned a single penny from Google ads or Amazon affiliate links.


I have been meaning to delete the prior version of for months, and finally took the time to do it! I had a fancy paid WordPress Theme and a few affiliate links and Google ads on the site and I was getting hundreds of spam comments per week. I finally turned off the comments because they were flooding my Inbox. It was crazy! I don’t know what was attractive about the site; I never received 1 cent from ad revenue or affiliate purchases, but it was getting all kinds of traffic and comments; all with backlinks to their own monetized websites.

Oh well. On to the next project.

This current WordPress installation is the free, 1-click version included with DreamHost. I am posting the first blog post and comment just so the site looks like someone actually owns this domain and cares.
