Friday the 13th

It’s Friday the 13th again already?!  Lynn Terry posted some fun facts about the day on her Facebook page:

According to the Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute in Asheville, North Carolina, an estimated 17 to 21 million people in the United States are affected by a fear of this day making it the most feared day and date in history.  Some people are so paralyzed by fear that they avoid their normal routines in doing business, taking flights or even getting out of bed. “It’s been estimated that [US]$800 or $900 million is lost in business on this day”.  Source: Wikipedia

And Lynn wrote a great post about why success and luck are not related.

Last week we reported that Amazon announces drone delivery service. Well, now Groupon announces catapults. 🙂

I have been so busy helping our data entry team enter store shipping deadlines for the holidays that I haven’t time to read many articles related to internet marketing this week.  Luckily Durk Price recaps some interesting articles in his Friday Pulse column on the eAccountable blog:

  • What percentage of women shop online at work
  • Facebook recommendations lead the pack
  • Instagram announces direct messaging

And it’s back to the grindstone for me!  How many other affiliate marketers will be working through the weekend like me?
