Battle at F-Stop Ridge

Continuing on the photography trend, this video was brought to my attention by Scott at Scott Wyden Imagery in a post about retail video marketing. Now this is the stuff I’m talking about!

    Hi Kristi,

    Thanks so much for the link to the post about adding the Hire Me tab. I have been meaning to get that done for weeks, and this was a good reminder to take care of it first thing tomorrow.

    I read your comment on the hashtag post. In addition to hashtag.org, tagdef.com is another good resource.

    Wow!! Another useful & juicy resources to take upon. I’m amazed kristi how you managed to read & comment on all those links you’ve provided with you job, own blog, photography blog etc. From last to last week only I just focused & read yours & SEOmoz blog. Didn’t get time to read other. How do you cope up with it? Would like to see a post on this?

    Awesome! I feel like I won the lottery, Kristi. Two weeks in a row my blog has made your list. When I checked my traffic this week it had a big spike up in traffic on the day I expected it to take it’s usual dip. When I looked at where the traffic came from it was all related to your tweet about my post. Thank you so much for sharing your influence with my blog. My cat, and I, appreciate it.

    That picture is awesome. I think I like it better than the reflection stream you shared a few weeks ago. I love the optical illusion effect by the water. Those have always been one of my favorite types of still photography.

    Hi Kristi, the video was so cool! I kept expecting to see Scott Kelby but I guess he wasn’t involved with that one, at the end I realized it was from the Camera Store.
    Jason’s photo is great and I’ll be sure to vote for it. I see both of you take your photography seriously too. Do the two of you swap cameras sometime or is your gear off limits?

    Another great “roundup” post. Thanks for including mine! :). I have read a few (maybe 1/3) and they were all great, so I really look forward to checking out the rest.

    Thanks for having a wonderful resource to check out every Friday and start the weekend, “right”

    Have a wonderful Weekend

    Hi Kristi, I remember how I felt when you published the very first Fetching Friday. I thought it was one of the most brilliant ideas ever. Turns out, that’s exactly what it was (and still is). I just wanted to say how much I value this amazing resource and how honored I feel to be included. You truly rock!

    Kristi, wow, what can I say other than I’m again so very honored to be on your list here and grateful that you take the time to boost other bloggers with this post every Friday. It really is a labor of love, and it’s incredibly appreciated.

    Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

    Thanks so much for including my post Kristi!
    I really appreciate what you do here every friday, I know how long these take to compile – and the fact that you have done it week in and week out is a testament to how selfless you are as a blogger.
    I’d go so far as to say you set a benchmark.

    Great looking information here too, let the blog hopping begin :)

    PS: Nice photo too, although I like the one from last week more (the cloud lines over the viaduct or whatever it was)

    Thanks again, see you soon!

    Kristi, thanks for featuring some of the posts that I enjoyed reading this past week.

    I want to say that I’m glad you didn’t miss that Jon Morrow’s post on how he quit his job and moved to ‘paradise’. It was filled with so much emotion and inspiration that I (cried and) drew strength from learning that in spite of all those odds, Jon defied them to succeed.

    I’ve heard the story by Jon Morrow a number of times online and in products. It’s always a great reminder though and I have much respect for him.

    I have to admit that I struggle with the guest posting. I don’t know what exactly a blog wants or I want to build up my own blog still with content to have something for people to find when they click to learn more. I don’t know if people want the full article or an idea for the article instead of getting the entire post and then making the decision.

    Ah guest posting still confuses me. Hopefully that article you linked to will help me out.
