    Thanks for putting this great list together.
    Before I start my busy day, I am going to start off with “How to Boost Your Income Without Much Work …” It’s going to make my day!

    Happy Fetching Friday!

      Hey Stacy. I like the storytelling post. Are you going to Blogworld? I hope to make it next year. I enjoyed your latest post about the Kindle change-ups. How are your book sales doing b.t.w? You should really do a guest post for Authopublisher.

      Kristy, I also liked the post about the Klout haters. Lots of controversy around their algorithm lately. I remember Ileane once moaning about a new user having a Klout score of 50? I wonder if they fixed that?

    Hey Kristi,

    Nice list, I’m going to start with “How to Use Pinterest to Drive More Traffic to Your Blog” since I was never a fan of pintrest, but I hear people are using it to get major traffic to their blogs, going to give it a try.

    Thanks for sharing. 😀

    Thank you Kristi, I like the first one which talks about storytelling. I realize that people need more personal story and good way of telling it.

    I think every blogger should not write the way journalist does! We need personal story, good headline and good story.

    I am learning now and I think I will improve my writing little by little, post by post. The link you post above is really useful for me.

    Thanks for posting Kristi (as usual!). These are great reads. That post about storytelling is especially interesting! Also, that video is stunning and makes me want to go to Japan.

    Hey Kristi, great to see that you’re able to keep up with all the blogging as well as putting your Fetching Friday resources together. I know your series would take a heck of a lot longer to put together than my Friday Funnies series.

    Great set of photos on that movie too. :)
