Fetching Friday – Resources Mashup & Canary Sky

This post is part of a weekly series, Fetching Friday, featuring the best posts of the week in blogging, business, freelancing, SEO, and social media on kikolani.com.

The Resources Mashup

Here are some of the best articles I have seen on Google+, retweeted on @kikolani, and read in RSS subscriptions this week.

Blogging / Content Marketing

Business / Career


  • Dealing With Procrastination – Catching yourself in the act of procrastination is the first step in getting past it. Here are some of Fast Company’s tips.
  • How to Eat Your Way to Freelance Success – Do you want a successful career as a freelance writer? Then you must be very careful about what food you put in your body.
  • The 15-Step Freelance Writers’ Guide to Writing for Magazines – The vast majority of writers who try to query or submit articles to magazines get nowhere. How can you get your articles published in magazines? Here is my 15-step guide.
  • Freelancers’ Guide to Balancing Work and Life – Balancing work and life is very important, and it is necessary to manage both sides perfectly to ensure success in the professional world. Although it sounds simple, managing both sides can be very difficult at times. This is more difficult for freelancers because they need to manage their own time between work and life.
  • Outsourcing: Friend or Foe – Outsourcing can be both a friend and a foe to freelancers. When it’s done right, it’s a real time saver; when it’s not, it’s a thorn in your side, if you’ll forgive the cliché. I know what I’m talking about because I’ve been on both sides of the equation, taking outsourced work from other people and outsourcing work of my own. There are lots of lessons I’ve learned on how to do it right.

Personal Development / Productivity

Search Engines / SEO

Social Media / Social Networking

  • ROI in Social Media: How Important is it to be Everywhere – When you first start getting interested in blogging, online marketing and social media you feel like you need to be everywhere. So at some point you have to ask a very interesting question: how important is it to be everywhere?
  • 9 Tweet Types For Your Twitter Strategy – To help those that may be stuck, below are nine types of tweets to try and incorporate into your Twitter strategy. If you don’t know where to start, start here.
  • What Your Klout Score Really Means – Your Klout score is gaining in importance: A high one might bring perks, but a low one could dash your career dreams.

    Thanks for another great list, Kristi! I read the Success Mindset yesterday (though I didn’t comment) and it was a very good read. I highly recommend it too. I look forward to reading how Tony Robbins plans his week.

    Great package once again, Krist!
    I read the Klout article from top to bottom. As much as we all hate to face the cold hard truth. Klout DOES matter in a big way. I just really knew about the concept of Klout literally 2 weeks ago, but I managed to increase it from 30 to 51 over that time period. I still do have a lot of work to do on that front but I’m happy with the progress. They sent me a perk just today. I guess every bit of incentive counts !
