All I can do is learn, and I’m sure there are others like me who feel the same way, so we can commiserate together.
Read Darin’s article. At the end, he provides a link to a group on Google+ called the Resistance Bloggers, of which I’m a member. It’s a good group of people sharing a variety of ideas. Be sure to check it out if you think you fit the bill of being a "power blogger" after reading this article.
