You know when you’re signing up for a mailing list?
And you know how they sometimes ask you for your first name?
And you know how sometimes, when you’re typing something that starts with a capital letter, you capitalize the second letter at the same time?
And you know how you wonder how you’re STILL doing this after all these years of typing?

So! In response to this traumatic event, I have decided to channel my pain and boredom and tell YOU 5 cool underappreciated apps that I use nearly every day to make business easier.
Hey, guess what! Today is Celebrate Bisexuality Day! It’s a day for us to celebrate bisexual people and their bisexualness!
Also? I find my spell-checker hilarious:
Anyway, September 23rd is Celebrate Bisexuality Day and right around the corner from that is Coming Out Day on October 11th. Around this time of year, for those of us in the LGBTQ+ community, it is customary to ask oneself, should I come out on my blog or in my business?
So let’s look at your coming out options. At the macro level, you’ve got three.
