Cute Baby Ducklings

It’s spring, and what says spring better than baby ducklings! This is a video I shot for my photography blog to go along with some photos of the little ducklings swimming and huddled under their mother for warmth. You’ll enjoy rooting for these little guys!

Hi Kristi, those ducklings are adorable. I was quite surprised to see their Mommy come back to fetch them after all the effort they put out to catch up with her in the first place. I guess she was teaching them a lesson of some sort. 🙂 Well anyway, I’m off to see the photos. Then I’ll come back to read about the guy looking for love on Facebook.

Hey Kristi, thanks so much for including a post from my blog, actually a guest post from Paul Wolfe. I enjoyed having him guest post and the post got so much attention. He is such a great writer.

Also, I feel stupid repeating myself half of the time, but just wanted to say that there are some posts here that I haven’t read and this is the reason I love your round ups 🙂

No need to feel stupid. I’m happy to know that each week has something new and interesting for everyone, considering I’m sifting through about 500 blogs now to find the best stuff! 🙂

Hi Kristi,
Thank you for always putting together such a great list each week! I especially appreciate your list on weeks like this, when I’ve been so busy that I’ve barely had time to write out my own posts much less get around to others.

Have a great weekend!

I’m glad you’re finding them helpful Stacy! I know that a lot of people miss out on stuff during the week, and I hope I give a good enough mix of just what you need to know! 🙂

Yet another great list Kristi. Did not have much time to read this week as my internet connection was letting me down. Fortunately it seems that it is all good now and can remedy that situation with your “short” list 🙂 Particular intrigued about the SEO mistakes, so I’ll start with that one. Have a great weekend

We had a week like that at work – internet was up and down like a crazy rollercoaster all day long for several days. Glad yours is back on track. Hope you have a great weekend too!

Hey Kristi,

You’re Friday list keep me busy every weekend reading. I always know I can come here for quality.

The baby ducks tricked my bird dog into thinking their were birds in the room. It’s so funny to trick her. LOL.

Have a great weekend.


Hey Kristi. Thank U for adding my post.. I Appreciate that.

I agree with Allie.. I will be busy this weekend reading all the great post. 🙂

Amazing how the ducklings never get lost lol

I was planning mini gold with my nephew last summer and was a duck and her ducklings walking all over, in grass in the little stream yet no one ever got left back…Good parenting at its best 🙂

Great bunch of links, Kristi!!

What I especially love about your Friday series is how it expands where I’m at, to look at everything just a little differently than I normally do…

Thanks Lance! I try to make sure it’s a good mix between beginner and advanced with a variety of topics to choose from so everyone can find something valuable to them.

Hi Lee. I don’t have them in their own specific newsletter, but that’s probably something I should look into. Right now I just have the general RSS feed for everything including the Friday posts. 🙂

This will surely keep me busy on this rainy Saturday. I really like the variety of posts that you highlight. I have read most of the blogging and seo articles this week but the productivity selections are all new to me. I will dive in and see if I can learn anything that will help me stop procrastinating (like I am doing now).

Hi Kristi

Great collection – I’m always in awe of people who put together these detailed link posts every week! Don’t they ever sleep?

And thanks for linking to my guest post at Brankica’s site – it was an interesting post to write, and seems to have been well received.

Have a great Easter.


I sleep sometimes Paul. Actually, every evening, but I do get up super early and stay up a bit later than I should reading posts throughout the week. 🙂

Took me nearly all day to read through the great posts you linked here. This has become my new Sunday paper 🙂 Found several new sites to follow too. Thanks for consistently making such great lists!

Kristi, I’ve been following these mashups for a few weeks now, and they are really excellent! They have exposed me to a number of good blogs that I did not know about before. This week, I really liked the pieces on Social Media ROI and the War of Art. Thanks for doing the hard work of rounding everything up!

Was the mother duck playing a prank on her ducklings? All that huffing and puffing to leap over that concrete wall and the stress and fright at the thought of being left behind, just to see her leaping back down. Cool video though. 🙂

I don’t know but I got attracted first to the link to Jonathan’s blog about the questions to change one’s mindset. What a eureka moment I had. I have yet to try it (maybe on arising tomorrow morning) but I actually believe it will work to lift me up and make my day even better. Thank you for that particular link Kris. Now, I’ve just found one more cool blog to lurk in.

Another good list Kristi, thanks for sifting through all the blogs to find some good stuff. No baby ducks right now, but baby geese or goslings I believe they’re called. Cute… ’til they start honking. 🙂

I hate it when that happens Scott! When I do a long comment, I paste it into Notepad, just in case the internet goes funky, which seems to happen every time I’m in the middle of something without saving. 🙁
