Guest Post: So You Think You Can Tap: Accumulating D’OH

Hey Howdy Hey Addicts!
To break us away from the Halloween update a little bit we decided to run a guest post from one of our readers Poisonshift.  This has some great advice for you new tappers from a new tapper (note this advice is aside from the Halloween update itself)!  Poisonshift currently runs the Addicts Forums so you can check him out over there!
PS: If you have an idea for a guest post feel free to submit it to us at TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com.  While we can’t promise we’ll run everything, we’ll certainly give every submission full consideration!
