I’m at Blog World!

This week’s Fetching Friday was put together Wednesday night, as Blog World began on Thursday and I wasn’t sure how much time I would have to compile the list. So this week’s post covers the best through Wednesday, and next week, be on the look out for everything from yesterday through rest of the week.

Also, if you’re at Blog World and reading this, definitely send me a tweet – maybe we can catch up if we haven’t already!

If you’re not in Vegas for the conference, keep an eye out on my tweets as well as those for the #bwe10 hashtag for the best nuggest of information from the sessions, as well as follow the live blogging on Stay on Search. Also, if you have a business card for your blog, find me! I would like to add it to a project! :)

    Wish I was at Blog World Kristi, I would love to catch up.

    Still, a great list of sites. I reckon I’ll suss out the selling a website on flippa one. Sounds like it could be interesting.

    Great articles. I was interested in the one about switching to PHP 5. I actually just did this myself. I realized that the floating Digg Digg plugin would not work on any platform lower than PHP 5. The only hiccup I had after readjusting my server was it temporarily crashed FeedBurner. I had to go in and re-ping the system to let them know of the change. Thanks for some more weekend reading!

    Sure wish I was at the Expo, Kristi, would definitely love to meet up. :-) Just got back from my trip and it’s great to be greeted with your Friday roundups! Your link love is very much appreciated, as always. I was able to learn about the Chilean miners story during my trip, so glad they’re all rescued!
