Fetching Friday – Resources Mashup & Midwinter in Sweden

This post is part of a weekly series, Fetching Friday, featuring the resources mashup, Midwinter in Sweden, and what’s coming up on Kikolani.

Thanks for Your Input!

Last week, I asked readers to let me know how many articles they would like to see in each category of the resources mashup. The votes are in, and they are as follows:

I have to admit, it was tough limiting some categories to only five posts. But I have an alternate idea for those who enjoyed seeing more results in particular categories, which I will be implementing sometime next month. So stay tuned!

    Wonderful still finding a way to slip me in here, Kristi; I appreciate it greatly.

    As for snow, I live in central NY, in the snowbelt, so I just pulled back my curtains, looked outside, and said “yup, it’s still there.” :-)

    I would have to say no more than 10 articles. Anymore, and I would be too lazy to read them all.

    I have to be honest with you Kristi. I think this is a perfect example of when fans and readers simply do not know what’s good from them.

    I love your style and attention to detail on every single aspect of your content and web design. Every week, you provide some incredible resources for all of us. I often find myself leaving a tab on my browser window open all weekend just to see what you have uncovered and yes, of course this takes a fair amount of my time, but it is well worth it.

    The concept of limiting yourself to 5 articles per category is more digestible in a sitting, but less valuable. I can’t tell you how often I have asked myself, “didn’t Kristi link to something on this topic?” Literally, I will look back at your posts weeks and even months earlier to something which I may not have grabbed me at the time, but I realize is more significant than I realized at first blush. I wonder how much of your insight I would be missing out on in this new format simply to follow some self-imposed and arbitrary rule.

    Anyway, my advice is to say true to your style. That’s why I am here reading and commenting. You have made so many thoughtful decision as it relates to your site and I respect your view immeasurably. What ever you decide, I am sure it is the right choice.

    All the Best,

    Captivating view, so surreal. I hope can put the clip on the 40″ LCD TV and have it played over and over.. (maybe after I earned my next pay cheque, lol)

    There are pros and cons in all decisions, just go for what you think benefit readers and what’s appropriate to your purpose. Too many links may be distracting but I didn’t mind before as most are very insightful content. As usual, thank you so much for the FF resourceful links, time for some reading! ^^ See you around.
