Friday Roundup for Photography Lovers

I finally achieved my ultimate goal – my husband is now heavily involved in the world of blogging and social media with his own dedicated HDR photography blog.

He’s recently started his own weekly roundup series called Friday Photo Spots. So if you love photography, be sure to follow him on Twitter, friend him on Facebook, and subscribe to his blog!

Become a Power Blogger

One of my favorite communities (before I got too busy to handle anything outside of Twitter, Facebook, or LinkedIn) was Blog Catalog. So when I heard that they have this huge one day deal going on for the next 24 hours as of 12 PM PST, I had to share it with you.

Power Blogging is meant to be a life coach for your blog. For $47.95 per month, you get the following:

  • Platinum Plus Membership including personalized ad rotation on BlogCatalog’s site which receives almost 300K visitors per month.
  • Spotlighting on the BlogCatlog blog and in monthly newsletters.
  • Access to BlogCatalog’s social media pros, designers, and programmers.
  • Additional links to your site throughout BlogCatlog.
  • Access to the Power Blogger e-Magazine.
  • A chance to get a free pass to the upcoming Power Blogger Conference (if you’re in the first 20 to signup).

So be sure to go check it out and see if it’s a good fit for your blog to boost traffic, readers, and build powerful connections in the blogging community!

Friday Remix

This isn’t an April Fools Day prank this time. My hubby shared this remix of the song Friday, and I have to say, I love it! I hope you will too! :)

    Thanks for your nice resources sharing! The Fetching Friday Resources Mashup is the only blog post I will not miss even in a busy week. I love to read the article about “10 Ways To Beat The Panda Update”. Thanks!

    Hi Kikolani..I usually read the articles you suggest here over the weekend, and sometimes into the week if I’m busy, and always learning some thing, or discover someone really inspiring. I can see you work really hard to cherry pick the best that’s out there, and deliver it to us in an easy to digest format. I really appreciate your hard work..although I’m not great at commenting yet, and generally only read in my reader..your blog has become essential reading. Thanks

    PS. I love your name btw, it’s beautiful, where does it originate from?

    Well, thanks to scraper’s trackback, I knew of your post, Kristi. :)

    Then I spend the rest of my morning, checking out the articles – loved Paul Cunningham’s post on advertising; something I thought of doing for a while now, just never got to it.

    As always, the mentioned is much appreciated, and I noticed how you go an extra step, my dear, to use our keywords in your entries. :)

    Have a great Friday!

    Another great list, Kristi. More people to follow. Funny thing though, some of the blogging links are talking about the exact same thing that I’m going to post on next week. Now it feels like I’m duplicating their effort, lol. I know I’m not…can’t help but have that passing thought though. Perhaps you have some ideas about that, that you might write on someday?

    All the best!
