Fetching Friday – Resources Mashup & Yosemite HD

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 / Writing

Business / Career


  • Make Time for YOU: Part One and Part Two – Many freelancers are stuck in a rut. We don’t dare pass up work because we aren’t confident it will keep coming in. But it’s important not to forget that you do have a life outside of your office space.
  • How to Deal with the Unique Challenges That Freelancers Face – Sure, everyone faces some challenges from time to time. But, due to the unique nature of freelancing perhaps freelancers are a bit more susceptible to some challenges than others.
  • 10 Ways to Put Yourself in Pole Position for Repeat Business – There are a number of ways you can keep yourself “front of mind”, putting you in pole position should any more work come up.
  • 5 Pros and Cons of Freelance Job Marketplaces – While online job marketplaces are a current trend worthy of your attention, you should consider the pros and cons before investing your time and energy into one. Let’s take a closer look.
  • How to Get High-Paying Writing Jobs on oDesk – There are plenty of gems hiding between all the ridiculously picky clients and insultingly low wages. Finding them just requires a bit of time and patience.

Personal Development / Productivity

Search Engines / SEO

Social Media / Social Networking

Photo of the Week

This week’s top photo comes from a random discover at a local park. Of all things we expected to see that day, a turtle was not one of them.

    Am back again Kristi!

    Just can’t resist your list of Fetching Friday’s! And it does take me 3-4 days going over all the posts in my peaceful time over the weekend! Something that I just love doing.

    The turtle is so awesome, and I like the way its within its shell-seems like an old one though.

    Thanks so much for sharing such goodies with us.

    Have a great weekend :)

    Two mentions on two consecutive Fetching Fridays? Either my content is starting to get better, or Kristi is just flat out awesome! (or both!)

    I don’t think I mentioned it to you before, but great job on the content audit for link building post. It’s funny; I’ve always thought this was a great idea, and I’ve done it a few times for clients, but I never thought about publishing this concept. Luckily, though, you put it together better than I ever could!
