    Hi Kristi,
    Thankyou so much for friday resource mashup and the links on social media are really of my interest at the moment. The photo is very captivating. Is it natural or artificial?

      It’s natural… some cropping, coloring, and leveling adjustments in Photoshop, but otherwise that’s how it looked when he saw it! :)

    Hi Kristi,

    Thanks for putting together another top notch roundup! I love that picture that Jason took, that is amazing! I heard that the moon was amazing the other night but seeing it over the Grand Canyon is really something else! Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for posting! I always love the links that you post. I’ve been having a lot of problems with writer’s block lately, so at least these posts always give me some inspiration.

      You’re welcome – that popup has led to some good topic ideas, but also some really off-base ones. I think spammers get confused about whether they can get a link out of it sometimes though. :)

      It’s not too big of a secret – I subscribe to over 500 blogs in my Google Reader, and I check through them daily for new posts. Any headline that catches my eye gets tweeted, and then I go through the tweets and the Reader at the end of the week to make the final top 5. :)

    That is one AWESOME picture of the supermoon. And not only is your aggregation of awesome posts great reading throughout the week, I just noticed something else while browsing. For those looking to build up their headline writing skills, several headlines are stacked up here, ready to compare and contrast. You can be sure that the content behind every link is high-end, yet some of these headlines jump out at readers and will be clicked first while others might not be clicked at all. There’s a lesson learned here, and if you’re working on building better headlines, maybe start by asking yourself which links you clicked first and why.

      I have thought about the headlines myself – specifically how in some topics, there are lots of numbered posts (10 this, 15 that). And it’s always interesting to think about why I gravitated to one post over another.
