    Thanks for sharing the list of posts. I’m working on SEO for my site now, so I’ll pay close attention to those particularly. Also, glad you shared the video about backpacks. I’ll be back to school in a month or so, and I definitely need to look for a backpack that will not put too much pressure on my back. At 17, I already feel like I’m getting old! 😛

    These are some really good articles, I read a few of those articles before making this comment. Got information on linkedin and twitter.

    By the way, thanks for adding my links.

    You just keep getting better!

    This series keeps getting bigger and better. I really liked the backpack safety video. I was just buying backpacks and school supplies for my kids earlier today…that was very insightful.

    Hey Kristi! Thank you so much for your link love again, and for your mention in your interview! That’s really an honor! :) I love your article on dofollow commenting at ehow too – have rated it with a 5 stars!

    Wow, I love the series on smoke photography, but surely some of those photos would have to be digitized computer images? If not, they may have some ingenious method they use that controls the random way that smoke rises and stuff.

  9. says

    Great line up of information, I love being able to come somewhere and play catch up from the things I missed online all week.

  10. says

    Very informative post…I really never thought twice about backpacks and what they might do to our bodies. So I guess there are more than just the usual health risks of going to college forever like I did…Thanks For the link love!

    Another great round-up of the week althought I am not coming on it till the very, very, very end. Top notch as always! I just hope I can spare the time at the first part of the week making my way thoughtfully through all your links.

  12. says

    It’s nearly a back to school day. Is it the reason that you want to blog some serious stuffs like WP theme customization?

  13. says

    Nice summarise. I read some of those (not everything of course). I liked the most “Opening the trottle to your blog” from Blogging and “What Recession? Why Year Over Year Profits Are Up 75%” from Business/finance. Your post is like a little library of useful informations. I like that, You check other blogs and sites in search for interesting content and than You show it to people that might be interested in reading. Thanks.

    I knew I can count on you. ^^ Have been MIA during the WP migration. I know have missed quite a lot of updates here and there. Checking out Fetching Friday and TechJaw’s Feeding Frenzy is a must do weekly. Thanks again!

    Thanks for the links, there are a lot that I think I’ll enjoy reading. I know I’ll enjoy the Anti Social Lists, Kim’s site is such a great resource (just like this one).

    Hi Kristi, thanks for the great link list, especially the photography section, there are some beautiful images in there.

    The smoke series and those taken during the solar eclipse are excellent, I love the one with the student wearing a stack of sunglasses to protect his eyes whilst viewing the eclipse! I also couldn’t help but have a giggle at the ‘Kung Fu Fighting Squirrels’, brilliant stuff! :)

    Great stuff man, I really love this post you did an excellent job of providing some of the best resources out there. I have stumbled, reviewed, and shared with my friends! Keep up the good work.
