    Thank you for taking the time to compile the Fetching Friday. I often look forward to it since you’ve done all the hard work for us in picking the best posts for us to read about throughout the week :-)

    Found the SEO posts to be really.. valuable. My niche site was also affected in the penguin update and I was happy to recover. Now really, interesting in reading about the areas.

      Hello Shamelle. I found the post on follow ups really valuable. I have a lot of follow ups to do in the next months or two for a project I’m launching. I think the key to success with this is to have a relationship with the blogger first. And if you don’t, build one and then approach or follow up. Don’t you think so too?

    Thanks again for doing these posts every week! There’s always so much to read. I really liked your link about “how to follow up with a blogger without being annoying.” That post just has good tips for dealing with people in general, doesn’t just have to be online. Hope you have a great Memorial day weekend!

    Great round up Kristi! My favorite article is “Get Inspired and Organized: Mind Mapping for Content Marketing”, Mind Mapping is an effective method of taking notes. Not only do Mind Maps show facts, they also show the overall structure of a topic and the relative significance of individual parts of it. They help you to associate ideas, think creatively, and make connections that you might not otherwise make.
