Fetching Friday – Resources Mashup & Within Two Worlds

This post is part of a weekly series, Fetching Friday, featuring the best posts of the week in blogging, business, freelancing, SEO, and social media on kikolani.com.

The Resources Mashup

Here are some of the best articles I have seen on Google+, retweeted on @kikolani, and read in RSS subscriptions this week.

Blogging / Content

Business / Career

Freelancing

  • Top 25 Lessons Learned In 25 Years Of Freelancing – I’d like to think I have learned a thing or two over those 25 years of freelancing. Here are 25 lessons gleaned from a quarter-century of independent consulting.
  • 10 Writer Websites That Kick Butt and Get Clients – Take a look for yourself. There’s a lot of variety in the approach in these sites, and they each have some particular strengths.
  • 18 Plus Free Mobile Apps for Freelancers – Here are 18 handy freelancing tools that you can download to your mobile device. Many of these apps also have a desktop version that you can use when you’re not traveling.
  • How to Get Repeat Business from Clients Through Feedback – It’s frustrating: you probably only hear back from the joyously enthusiastic clientele and the ones with the biggest gripes. Small gripes usually get reported less. Still, there are several benefits to spending the time getting a sense of what your clients think of you and your freelance services.

Personal Development / Productivity

  • 8 Reasons to Stop Waiting for Approval – Don’t just accept the safe and easy choices because you’re afraid of what others will think, or afraid of what might happen. If you do, nothing will ever happen. Don’t let small minds convince you that your dreams are too big. They aren’t.
  • How to Find Your Life Purpose: 25 Discovery Questions – Life purpose is the main reason you were put on earth. What are you here to do? It’s more than just make it to the end of the day at hand. It’s more than to just have fun all day long.

Within Two Words

“Within Two Worlds depicts an alternate perspective by giving us the illusion of times movement, signifying a beginning and end within a world of constant contradiction. It appears you are traveling in the midst of a dream, half-sleeping, half-waking, and touching the arch connecting heaven and earth.”

    I really enjoy that you continue to include the personal development links each week. I would argue that they are more important than any of the others. When we’re trying to advance, get ahead, and find success in business, it often comes at the detriment to our own development. Character and a clear understanding the self is the most critical part to success, and to happiness, really, and it is great that you are putting an emphasis on it with your links each week.

    You have listed the best articles. I have often wondered how some people get thousands and thousands of followers on Twitter. Now I know that there are tools to retweet. But I must say I am not a fan of these tools. The 15 helpful link building tools article is a good one which mentions the keyword combination tool which is very useful. Thank you for listing these resources.
