A Day Without Rain

For those who had a busy week (like I have just coming back from Affiliate Summit West and jumping right back into work), I thought a beautiful time lapse video would be just the soothing, relaxing thing!

    Hi Kristi,

    I especially liked, “35 local link building opportunities.” When I started my first site many moons ago, some really great links came from people I knew in person, whom I had met at various business functions.

    Ever since that time, I have considered face-to-face interaction the best way to get good links.

    Hi Kristi,

    Great Fetching Friday post, as usual. Loved the “Facebook for Websites” article! I have been wanting to incorporate the like buttons on my websites.

    I seem to be having a problem with the link for the “guilt be gone article.” It pulls up a blank page for me.

    Thanks for the reading material for the week!

    I am overwhelmed in a good way by all these resources. I found the SEO article on local linkbuilding opportunities particularly interesting. Having experienced quite a bit of rain lately, it was nice to see a time lapse of a “Day Without Rain.” Today, happens to be a beautiful day and it reminds me that I really need to get outside to take advantage while I can.

    A nice collection, but you know I love when you link to picture pages because I just never seem to come across them on my own. And I seem to be missing from your stream, so please stop by and see if there’s anything I might have written, or might write, that you’d find apropos. I do love the video, though; you pick nice stuff.

    Another great Fetching Friday Kristi. The 7 tips from top bloggers over at social media examiner are great, especially the tip on interviewing the best in your industry. It would be great if you had a section in your Fetching Friday that focused on improving content creation or landing page conversions.

    But I can’t complain because there is a lot here to cover. So thanks again for sharing all these great articles.

    Call me a sponge because I am soaking everything up!

    I’ve recently been learning a lot more things to help websites, blogging, and growth. These categories all come into play. I’m hoping that I can translate what I learn into helping photographers through my experience.

    There are a few websites I’ve been living on over the last week. Thanks for all of these resources! They are seriously amazing and I know I’m improving thanks to them.

      You’re a photo sponge! :)

      I’ve been tweaking the categories over the last few months for my Friday posts, and I think I’ve finally settled with these as they are the top ones that are needed by almost every blogger. I might have to re-add my design category though, as people are always looking for a little creative inspiration.
