As some of you may know, one of my favorite things to do when I’m off of my computer (rare, I know) is ballroom dancing with my husband. This is the video from our showcase performance in June. I’m not sure what’s up with the greyness at the beginning, but it goes away before the dance starts. I hope you enjoy!

Hey Kristie, awesome Fetching Friday resources as usual. I left a comment on YouTube, but I forgot to say that your husband is a pretty fabulous dancer too. You guys are awesome. Thanks for the treat.

Forget the resources. That dance was magnificent. What a lovely Waltz. I am so jealous. You are ready for dancing with the stars.

Great article you linked on there written by Danny Brown.

Excellent collection Kristi as always! My doses of delicious information for my weekend.
I saw you’ve been occupied with several guest posts and your newsletter too – a very productive week for you 🙂
Keep up with your good work and dance a lot next days!

Enjoy a superb weekend,

Gera

Love your performance! Dancing is one of my biggest hobbies as well and just performing in front of an audience really makes me happy. Keep on dancing girlie!

As for the roundup, love the article on 54 new link building strategies. It’s always nice to freshen up the strategies.

Great resources as usual, but what really caught my eye was your dancing with your husband. You guys dance very well and I’m still dizzy just by looking at you and your husband turning over and over. How do guys do that 🙂

This is becoming a regular visit for me now that I have found you. As always, lots of great content. I love dancing too. It’s a great social occasion eh. Thanks again for all that you give to the blogging community. This newbie sure appreciates it.

Hi Kristie,
This is my first time commenting on your blog. You posted really useful information here. The most notable being the Facebook privacy controls. For whatever reason, Mark Zuckerberg is going ape with Facebook and not seriously considering the privacy issues it imposes. The most recent issues he reluctantly went back and installed or made it easier for the FB user to set who saw what content. I am still skeptical about the new Facebook places but glad to see they were proactive about installing controls to limit or block out who sees what.
Great blog Kristie. Look forward to reading more of your posts in the coming future.

How romantic, and one of my favorite songs. 🙂 Nice move, you both! What a terrific video to enclose along with the resources. And you look stunning too, Kristi. Bravo for dancing so well and look at those heels! It’ll take forever for me to ever move so swiftly in that. 🙂

Where is my manners? I was supposed to thank you for including me a link love but completely forgot after watching the video. 😛 Thanks so much for sharing, my friend.

Great mashup. I just forwarded the facebook field guide to my dad. He doesn’t want to be on facebook but it’s the only way he can keep up with his Naval Academe friends. lol.

Sweet video, really nice moves! What better way to do ballroom dancing than with your husband. I also do some ballroom dancing with my wife and it’s a great exercise as well as a great past time.

The Google adwords tool article was very interesting. I have always noticed something off with the numbers it spits out. It’s scary to think how many people were using it for their primary keyword research. Thanks for passing all these great articles along.

Hey thanks Kristi for featuring one of my post into this Fetching Friday. Seems that your site also got so many excellent & useful posts. Just added you to my FB. Thanks again.

I love your “Fetching Friday” posts. This one in particular is a great resource of learning material for me. Looks like I’ll be busy reading for a while.

I attempted to watch your dance clip, but got interrupted – I’ll check it out now…

Hi Kristi! I loved the video of you and your husband dancing. It must be so nice to be married to someone who loves it as much as you do! Great job.

Cheers,
Tia

Hi Kristi,
As usual you have great resources for us to read. I just loved watching you dance- absolutely graceful. Your dancing expressed the essence of feminine beauty. I hope you never stop.
Blessings ♥,
Eren
