    The ultimate post I think that I love the most is The Marketer’s Guide To Visualization.

    Such a very informative post, and will take you quite a bit to understand and read. But no problem, just break it up everyday and read it completely.

    Nice roundup of posts for the week, and having them be featured here at kikolani.com

    As usual thanks for putting together a great post! You always give me something to read for the weekend. And omg at those baby meerkats! They are so cute! When the little baby one falls over at the end… I die. Adorable!
