    As always, I enjoyed reading through your lists. Because my time is usually limited, I appreciate your style of selecting 5 sites in each category. The time it takes for me to read those pretty much matches the free time I have! By the way, I like your photos! (I checked out your photo blog). You must have used zoom for that closeup photo of a chicken (otherwise, that chicken has no fear of cameras :-)

    Great compilation of advice for all topics… I like the first article a lot as it has really important tips for any blogger…I esp like what they mentioned there about linking other authority sites and give credit where it is due. I think some people are just scared of linking to their competition, but that’s not the way to become successful…you need to be unbiased and inform your fans about all the options out there! Like you are doing!

    Hey! Of course, cool round up. I like the one about the Facebook Timelines. Some people hate them and some people love theme. Some people just love to hate change.

    The cool think about the Facebook Timeline is the design aspect that’s come from it. While we don’t need to fully design the pages, designing the cover image transforms the page. The design adoption that’s come from it is interesting as well. I just saw a pin on pinterest about all the different dimentions – from Timline to images, to highlights.

    Hi Kristi,
    Wow, those are some truly great posts. I read the 12 ways to kill and then on to the blogosphere with their newest plug-in with fantastic features.
