      It is a great toolbar, don’t get me wrong. But in the process of trying to get my site to load faster, I’ve had to take some plugins off that aren’t absolutely essential. I think it’s worth the speed boost. :)

      Hope you have a great weekend too!

    Thanks for linking to the blogging jobs at Famous Bloggers. I’ve had a few people ask me for resources, but as I get all of my work word of mouth I didn’t really know any except problogger boards.

      Sure do! I mean, I’m a skimmer… I read the parts I’m interested in. But usually if I find something really helpful in the article, I figure others will find that part helpful as well.

      I’m in process of writing one myself! :) I’m glad you enjoyed the first newsletter! I have to get on the ball about sending them more regularly.

    Great round-up I mostly read the posts about internet marketing and link building and judging on those I think the others were great too.

    After watching the video with the cat being wrapped I went to yt to look on some more videos of it. And I sadly found out that the cat passed away :(

      That is pretty sad. What a great way to create an online memorial for your cat than by Youtube… I’ve done that with some of my kitties that have passed on, and I can now watch them where ever I go.

    Great collection of links. I especially found the Link Trio article on Viperchill.com to be extremely informative. And of course, the cat video is hilarious. Can’t wait to catch up again next week!

    Well Kristi – I was on my way out to meet the girls for an afternoon coffee when I said to myself “let me see what Kristi has for us today first”. And here I am, 30 minutes later, still sitting in front of your awesome roundup clicking on link after the other! Meanwhile, I’m getting threatening phone calls asking where the hell I am lol :).

    You truly are an inspiration. You manage to consistently share the most useful advice, tips, resources and words in everything you post! Well done!

    I’m happy to say that I’ve come across or read a few of these posts already and am a big fan of several of the authors – but I intend to at least try and finish the list :).

    Needless to say that this is an excellent roundup of some incredible articles. Thanks for taking the time to share them.

    PS – Love the cat wrap video :). Hmmm…I’m wondering if I can pull it off with a puppy.

      Whoops, sorry I made you late. :)

      Wrapping a puppy probably depends on the puppy… my Miniature Schnauzer was calm enough (or rather scared) when we first brought him home and it could have worked. But then when he relaxed and started getting crazy, there was no way wrapping paper would have held him in. :)

    Kristi – Nice job on collecting all of these links. I had actually read actually read the article on lifehacker.com and it definitely convinced me not to switch. I’m actually interested in the Landing Page Seminar since I like Brian Clark, am I too late or can I still register?
