With WiFi hotspots popping up seemingly everywhere, it’s obvious that our world is becoming increasingly reliant on internet access. This can be GREAT in several different ways, but some drawbacks may cause some to question the viability of even using these access points. From coffee shops to school campuses, access can be had nearly anywhere, but are you really sure that your information is properly protected? Or, better yet, can you even access many of the sites you’d like to visit?
Online censorship is a common practice in several nations, but many don’t realize that many WiFi networks in the United States or UK will also do their part to limit access to certain websites. Companies and schools will often limit online access in an effort to avoid acting as a portal to “inappropriate” content. Social media outlets, particular subjects, and non-work related sites are often considered unacceptable and subsequently blocked. Those wishing to access these sites will need to use a third party network to do so.
In addition to accessibility, several security concerns lurk for those using a public WiFi access point. When using such an unsecured network your traffic can be easily snooped by other people on the same network. This is called “data sniffing” and is an old school hacking technique.
However, in addition to the more seasoned hackers lurking at your local cofee shop, many data sniffing tools have been made available to the general public, free of cost.
“Firesheep”, for example, exposed many of the risks associated with public networks, and caused many users to seek out encryption technology. This simple tool can be used by anyone, even amateur hackers to gain access to your online sessions. For example someone using Firesheep on the same public network could easily gain access to your Facebook account, read your private messages and post on your behalf. Kind of scary if you think about it, right?

Just as learning is a lifelong process, so is the road to bettering yourself as a writer. Even the most experienced and novice writers still manage to make their writing this year better than it was last year. There’s always an area to improve and tons of advice to be gathered along the way.
#1 Write regularly (whether you want to or not)
If you’re in a freelance position, as many writers are today, then it’s likely that you have the freedom to create your own work schedule. Though this is a blessing in most situations, freedom of this nature can also be a major ingredient for procrastination. And when it comes to writing, the longer you put it off the worse it gets. Going a week, for instance, without writing can be a major blow to your creative spirit, and will very likely create a writer’s block like you’ve never seen.
The remedy? Keep yourself busy with articles or other assignments to ensure that you write on the regular basis. Even if you can’t keep up with a 500 word a day minimum, try to at least push out a paragraph or two, even if its worthless, at least you wrote something.
#2 Use reading to spruce up on your grammar
It goes without saying that good grammar is part of good writing. Whether you self-publish or write for someone else, you have to take the time to ensure that what you create is presentable and worthy of being read.
If you can’t recall all the points made by your English teacher, or dread studying them on your own, a good remedy is to simply read (from educated sources). Reading overall is crucial to all writers, but more specifically if you read from sources that have a reputation for proper grammar and style usage, you’ll give yourself a prime opportunity to pick up on the grammar do’s and don’ts of the language (all without flipping through one page of a grammar textbook).
