Now In Politics Magazine: Ten Ways to Blow It Online in 2010

December 7th, 2009

Be sure to pick up your copy of Politics Magazine this month, since the current issue features a companion piece to the Winning in 2010 series.

The approach this time is a little more tongue-in-cheek — it’s a take on the classic idea of a Top Ten list, in this case looking at Ten Ways to Completely Blow Your Online Presence in 2010.

Of course you should purchase a print copy of the magazine, but you can also check out the article online.
