        I just discovered your blog a few weeks ago via the weekly roundup – it’s a great site! I hope you have a good weekend too.

        It usually either takes about 10 – 15 minutes per day throughout the week, or about an hour and a half if I wait till Thursday night. I enjoy it as I get to catch up on the great articles of the week as well!

        Probably so. We were just discussing this at work – how there are so many changes in social media sites that make write about it hard because you never know how soon what you say will be made obsolete by a new change. Even newly published books on Facebook are now all wrong!

      You got to stop doing this!

      I got up early today to finish a client’s work and now I am distracted by these great links! I just have to look at the majority of them (I did like the YouTube channel one – great SEO tips there).

      Now I won’t have time to go shopping with my wife – oh, that’s good isn’t it?

      So, on second thoughts – keep doing it!


      P.S. Loved the video as well – really sums up Social Media (which most of us get wrong!).

        I really can’t stop – it’s an addiction! I hope that you find a good way to balance reading time, client work, and personal commitments though. It’s tough, but well worth it in the end! :)

      Hi Kristi! Among the resources, i love to read the Top 20 Young Entrepreneur blogs and 2 Great WordPress Plugins to Find Your Blog Most Powerful Page. I really get inspired from the article of Top Young entrepreneur. Thanks for your sharing! :)

        That was the first I’ve heard of it, but at the same time, I feel like I have seen some issues where I don’t get the @reply to show up in my mentions, but I can find them in searches. I always thought it had something to do with people who put a colon at the end of the username, like @kikolani: – maybe that made them hidden.

        You’re welcome. I’ve been doing this for awhile now, and it’s always a good thing for me too, as it forces me to keep up to date on what’s being talked about elsewhere. It can be a great source of future writing inspiration!

      wow that must have taken many hours to compile that post. It would take me at least an hour to read through them all. I did click on several. I really liked the 20 young entreprenuer post. Now I have 20 more blogs to check out!

      Kristi, I actually spend most of the weekend having fun, but I really appreciate all of these links and am busy looking at the most intriguing ones.

      This is an incredible list of resources. Thanks so much for sharing it with us. The posts 10 tools for the freelancers toolkit and How to encourage people to fan (now like) your Facebook page with custom content were very useful to me.

    6. says

      Thanks for the list. I can’t wait to read the link building pet peeves. I am going to go look at your YouTube channel.

      You offer great service here! Looking forward to reading more from you Kristi!
