    Hey, Kristi! Thanks for the STAR TREK add here… I can’t begin to explain how giddy I am about this latest movie. I hardly recognize myself these days! 😉

    I’ve been meaning to tell you for AGES that I am so impressed with your Friday Mashups, as they always seem to include just the right mix of everything we want to read about. I don’t know how you do it… consistently and brilliantly, but keep ’em coming!

    Oh, and I can’t believe you let Jonathan totally rub it in that he’s going to Kauai (without us)! That’s practically spam! 😉

    Kristi, Great video. Really got me thinking “Vacation Time.” I’m jealous of @Jonathan heading to Kauai. It will be interesting to see how many posts @Jonathan published will on Kauai 😉

    Excellent FF collection here. Lots of great links and resources to check out this weekend. Thanks.

    Awesome information. I feel like I am at the library. I also had an over sight with one of my blog titles which I fixed. “Why you should never opt out of spam email” I had “Why you should never opt out of a spam email.” They both work, but the title with out the *a* just reads better.

    Have a great weekend!

    Kristi this is an impressive list! I know how long takes to compile all these data.
    Thanks for including my healthy eating post!

    I’m now bookmarking at delicious to read it slowly with enough time and with the beautiful relaxing video on background 😀
    I’m expecting your goals for the 2010 :)

    All the best,

    Thanks, Kristie, for gifting us one more post with lots of information and resources. Now I’m going to spend a day reading all those SEO, WordPress, Tech, and Blogging posts.

    By the way, Thank you very much for including my post in the series. I really appreciate it and hope that in future my blog will not be removed from the list of recommendation. :)

    Hi Kristi, thanks for the list of links. I just dropped by and left a comment on 13 ideas to inspire blog content as I just wrote on the same subject today. Nice to read what others are saying.

    Another great list, Kristi, but I have to admit that I almost stopped going through the list as soon as I saw the words “Star Trek”. I’m heading there now! lol

    Hi Kristi,
    I hope you are not offended if I offer a critique / opinion. In the beginning I really enjoyed your “best of” style posts, but with time I find myself skipping them more and more, reading max the first two or three links. Wouldn’t it be better to either add a “recommendation of the day” to each of your “normal” blog posts and / or limiting them to fewer links? Imho less is often more, SY
