Kristi, you really nailed it this year. I love everything that you’ve put out there and I can see that it was a lot of effort from your side.

Congratulations for a wonderful year and here’s to an even better 2012!

Eugen

So I wake up, plan to have a slow morning and come to check my email. And there is an email from Kikolani saying there is a post with 560 resources waiting to be read. Girl, you almost gave me a heart attack. I had such nice plans and now my whole 2012. will be spent going through them. Lol, on the serious side, it was a relief seeing it is a list of list posts especially that I’ve seen some of them before, so it won’t take me a whole year to read it, probably only about 3 months 😉
Hope you are having great holidays….

I know, 560 sounded dramatic. It was one of those attention getting titles I just couldn’t resist. And it’s true. Glad it won’t keep you busy for too long, and I hope you’re having a wonderful holiday as well! 🙂

Hi Kristi,

Do you know why links in the body of comments are now nofollow? That is true in blogs running Thesis AND other themes so I’m wondering it that is something in CommentLuv Premium or WordPress is doing it.

I’m pretty sure that’s just WordPress… I’ve noticed it before Commentluv Premium or the latest upgrades to WordPress. If you edit the comment in the dashboard and use the link button with anchor text instead of just the URL, I think it fixes that. 🙂

Some impressive lists that I will have to check out. I am especially interested in link building. Been uping my game when it comes to guest posting. There is so much left to do.

I wrote a couple of posts this year with roundups that people really seemed to like:

25 Design Links- http://cirquedumot.com/better-design-25-links/
42 Branding Links- http://cirquedumot.com/top-branding-blogs-of-2011/
My Favorite Posts That I have Shared on Twitter- http://cirquedumot.com/flashback-friday-best-posts-of-2011/

I had some favorutie moments and posts which are really liked but they are mostly connected with the physcology and the relations between people and sexes even. I had a difficult year in my private life and i can say that i have been a bit obssessed with everything that goes about it.
Thanks a lot for the congratulations on the coming New Year! My best wishes to you!

I am extremely inspired with the list of resources here. Great post, with tons of good info that I hadn’t considered before, all your favorite resources you have listed here will definitely be helpful tool for others in to this niche. An impressive share. Many thanks Kristi.

Yay for this! Gonna go tear some of these articles up. My next “to do” for today is to go build some good links. SOooooo.. I shall read the 79 link building resources.

I actually thought there would be 560 links on this page, but then I saw the awesomeness of your group curation.

Hi Kristi, I have bookmarked your list and over the next week or so I will work my way through some of the articles that are most pertinent to me. Thanks for gathering such useful information, I have learned a lot by visiting your site (and being redirected to the various articles) over the last few months.

Each time I see your site, you have at least a dozen comments, even on the newly published posts. How do you do that? The better question is, how can I do that?

You have a great site here. Keep up the good work!

Hi Jim. I spent a LOT of time in the beginning of my blogging career just doing blog commenting. I haven’t done it as much as I should lately, but I always notice a higher amount of comments on my posts when I go out and comment on others, or at least share others posts on social media. The more you interact with others, the more interaction they will do on your blog. 🙂

Hello Kristi! Your lists always amaze me!! This is so brilliant and helpful. Thank you Kristi for all your lists you gave us this year, all your articles, your advices and also for the time that you spent for us and with us! May 2012 bring you happiness, joy and good health.

Wow! What a great collection of information. I think I’ll be working my way through this for some time. But that is a good thing ’cause there is quite a bit of useful stuff to digest.

Great to see how your blog has grown and evolved over the last few years. Best wishes for a great 2012. Cheers.

Thank you for posting this Kristi. I love everything you added to the list, I can see you put a lot of effort and time into your list. I just came across your blog from over at birdsontheblog, and I will definitely be back. Love your page. Hope you had a great Festive season. Happy New year. Rochelle.

Just came back from a very loooooooong vacation and decided to check out your posts immediately Kristi. As always, you deliver great post and awesome resources to the table. Time for me to get busy! Thanks for this one and Happy 2012 by the way.

Hey Kristi,

When I read your description I thought I was going to see 560 links and immediately thought “there’s no way in hell someone actually went through that kind of hassle…” man haha

On a more serious note, I appreciate this a lot, I think I’m going to have to make a few stickies out of this.

Take care and all the best for this weekend! 😉

Sergio

Oh Kristi why do you do this to me!! lol

It’s been almost a month now since it’s been starred in my Google Reader and I still haven’t had time to go through it, and I can’t unstar it because almost all of the 10 posts interest me!!!

I’m going to try and go through most of them this afternoon.

I just spent about 2 hours looking at the 79 link building resources and have just scratched the service. Kristi, this is an awesome list of some very valuable Free information. Of course, I wouldn’t expect a recommended resource list from you to not be valuable 🙂 Thanks.
