The benefit of using WordPress to power your blog is that you don't need to edit any PHP files and use thousands of ready themes available for free. If you're like me, you'd prefer to keep away from major editing of the theme files and prefer to use the right assortment of plugins to get the job done. If you're looking to add text before post content in WordPress, you can either edit your theme files or check out Add to All, a plugin I released a while back.
If you're regularly blogging, or even just writing, it is important to maximise your speed of typing. Learning touch typing is an important step towards improving productivity. However, if you're not an expert at touch typing, or would like to speed up still further, then using an autotext software is a very good solution.
When writing an article for any blog I make sure to collect maximum information about the post and note it down on Notepad because I always find it hard to switch from one tab to another. I do that because there isn't just one source of information I use. I like to take opinions of all the popular websites out there and even test out the services I'm writing about and then present it to our readers so that they don't get disappointed.
