The email inbox.

Few things are more effective at wasting time than this thicket of spam, useless updates and unwanted notifications. Hacking a path through the labyrinth of unwanted notices and advertisements to track down personal correspondence and other important emails can be flat-out exhausting. When these new emails are sent directly to a cellphone, the distractions become even more disruptive. Fortunately, it doesn't have to be that way.

It's estimated that it takes between four and twenty minutes to regain focus on a task after being interrupted. In some cases, the level of focus never completely returns. Most of us suffer through a whole host of distractions on a daily basis as it is, and email notifications only make things worse. Although many of the websites most notorious for over-notification have settings to turn them off or change when they're received, it can be confusing and extremely time-consuming to locate and change all of them manually. Thankfully, Notify Me Not offers a deceptively simple yet wonderfully efficient solution.

Reclaim Your Focus

Facebook. Twitter. Pinterest. There are no shortage of websites that will fill your inbox to its bursting point if you let them. Notify Me Not's ultra-simple interface provides the perfect tool for reclaiming your focus and productivity without wasting hours of your time. A set of tiled buttons list all of the most common offenders, and a quick mouseover reveals a link directly to the settings page for each site. Also provided are links to excellent step-by-step guides which explain how to properly configure each site.

By providing a direct link to the settings for each website, you're given the control to determine exactly if, when and how you receive notifications. Using Notify Me Not, you can finally work interruption-free without worrying about missing the important stuff. So go ahead, give it a try and take back your inbox for good.

One of the first things a new reader notices on your site is how fast the page loads. Even if the web developer has the best site in the world, they will not be able to keep readers if the page loads too slowly. Google also places a high value on speed since the search engine wants viewers to have the best experience. If the website is not operating at optimal levels, it could lose its Google ranking.  Farm bloggers can check the performance of their website easily using Pingdom. This program allows them to see how fast the website loads and judge the overall reader experience.

The easiest way to fix the loading speed is to limit the number of WordPress plugins. Although some plugins are necessary, too many can drag down the blog’s speed. Only plugins that are absolutely necessary should be kept. Useless spam comments can also drag down the website. Consistently deleting spam contents can help erase unnecessary items and improve the overall experience for readers. 

Likewise, developers should get rid of previous revisions of their posts. These older versions of the blog make the database heavier. If left up, they can slow down the blog without helping it improve in anyway. One great plugin that will do this for the developer is the Better Delete Revision plugin. Install this useful feature and watch the old revisions melt away. 

High Quality Web Hosts

The best web hosts can actually help a blog increase in speed. Users should select a web host that has additional memory space as well as a CPU on the host server. Since these hosts often charge a higher fee, farm bloggers can wait until their project has taken off enough to make a better web host more affordable. 

Optimize the Database

Like the other tips above, optimizing the database can speed up the blogs uploading time. One easy way to optimize it is to install the WP-DBManager plugin. This plugin feature will let the blogger optimize, back up, restore and repair the database. Depending on the size of the blog, it should be optimized every few days and repaired at least once a week.

Within no time, your farm blog will be ready for the races!
