Monthly Blog Roundup: WordStream’s February Highlights
February: Kind of a pathetic little month, isn’t it? Cold, wet and short. Like a dog left out in the rain. I can’t imagine anyone picking February as their favorite month. It would be like having taupe as your favorite color. Or oatmeal as your favorite food. (Cold oatmeal that is.)
Luckily this dumb month is pretty much over and that means it’s time for our monthly list of the WordStream blog’s greatest hits! Our most popular posts in February, without further ado:
