#FBCLContest Updates

As I mentioned a few Fetching Friday’s ago, there is a huge blogging contest going on at Famous Bloggers and ComLuv. Prizes are now up to over $3,500.

Your support means the world to me – my entry on how to use CommentLuv to promote your articles on networks such as Squidoo, HubPages, Bukisa, EzineArticles, and GoArticles (the article includes specific guides for each network) now has 91 comments and 79 tweets – and still needs more of both! So please show some love, even if it is just with a simple retweet.

More posts in the contest can be found on ComLuv blog and in this collection on Famous Bloggers. So please stop by and support your favorite articles and bloggers by stopping by, commenting, and retweeting. And be sure to get into the action yourself by submitting a quality blog post before the deadline on July 7th.

Funny Tennis

I’m sure most of you by now have heard of the epic Wimbledon match between John Isner and Nicholas Mahut that went for a little over 11 hours over the course of 3 days and ended in the fifth set with Isner winning 70 games to 68. It has officially broken 12 Guiness World Records.

For those of you who aren’t that into tennis, here is a fun clip of John Isner playing with John McEnroe against the the Bryan brothers in an exhibition tennis match. There are several funny moments, including the one of the brothers climbing on the other to poke at Isner’s 6’9″ stature. Enjoy!

Thanks for the heads up… just fixed it. Left out the http for some reason. That’s what I get for late night blogging I guess. ๐Ÿ™‚

Another great list of awesome resources Kristi, and this time it is “slightly” bigger than the previous week ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for the mention and while I’m at it, I encourage everyone to check out the contest that’s going on at FamousBloggers and ComLuv.

BTW, the post you wrote about Article Marketing is a killer.

Just a pinch larger, yes. ๐Ÿ™‚ And thanks… that article took some time with the additional supplement guides. I think it’s a good strategy for article marketing though.

Kristi, thanks for compiling these articles. Just saw that my blog was mentioned in one of places to guest blog. A great compilation of guest blogs.

Also, thanks for the link love and best of luck for contest. I hope that we both win ๐Ÿ™‚

Yes, it’s a good place to go for anyone looking for more opportunities on any size site. And good luck to you! I think there are going to be lots of prizes, so there is a good chance of that happening! ๐Ÿ™‚

Good morning people ๐Ÿ™‚

I wake up early to approve some expected comment on my blog, I have no idea why all comments are waiting for approval!!

I found the post about “Why guest blogging is useless for link building” very useful, I had to reject a lot of posts recently from those marketer who just to promote their businesses, I even wrote a post about this because I feel I had enough! I will publish it soon!

Is something odd happening in your comments too? I noticed a few oddities in mine as far as things that were approved automatically that shouldn’t have been and things that weren’t approved but should have been, and one that I know I saw but seemed to have disappeared. Something odd going on in the comment moderation system.

Interesting this comment oddity. Have any of you guys updated to WP 3.0? Just wanted to know because I am still in a lot of doubts. Sorry for being off topic here, just curious

No conspiracy, just a glitch somewhere out there. It’s not Akismet, because it’s between the moderation and approved comments. For example, I know I read a particular comment, and then I went to a different post, came back, and the comment (or at least that part of the comment) was gone. I read through all the comments looking for it, and it just wasn’t there. It was strange.

I haven’t upgraded either. But all of the sudden, with no changes to my site, everything’s been running much faster too, so I can’t really complain about a few weird comment issues.

You’re welcome. Yeah, that post was not just your usual “here they are” but also some applicable advice to fix them to, which is what made it gold!

Kristi, I really appreciate your section on personal development blogs. In particular, I think it’s wonderful that you have mentioned an article on Overcoming Chronic Illness and Stress, which is relevant to about half the population of America (maybe more?), but is not often highlighted in the realm of “how to be happy.”

Nice rundown once again. I cant believe there are 195+ social media measurement tools already.

Another great lists kristin,
Am going through the 33-common-business-blog-mistakes and 101-blogs-that-accept-guest-posts, to see what i can learn from it. I must tell you that your blog has so many good tips to help someone achieve his dream. I must be coming back to check on you.
God bless.


I am always amazed when I come across a mashup article like this one where you have included so many useful links. Plus those links are all recent ones. I think I probably spend as much time online in one week as you do. Yet, I can’t see how you can come up with that many superior sources of information.

It is time I cleaned out my Favorites folder and started upgrading my list of them.

Hey Kristi, yet another great load of resources, was looking at these night shots, makes me want to cry – I have been living off phone cameras for the last 3 years, and they are not that great at night!

Thanks for including my Search Engine Watch post about Facebook Privacy.

Wow, this list is so awesome, as are all your other Fetching Friday posts. Kudos to you, I have no idea how you find the time but you always have the best posts, provide the best information, and even respond to a ton of comments. Wowsers! ๐Ÿ™‚

Another collection of awesomeness to absorb. Fetching Friday is becoming a feature of my week ๐Ÿ™‚

lovin your work here, Kristi, and your blog in general

As always , great round up and I have a lot of reading to catch up on as I have not been online for a couple days (power outage). I did read your contest post though, very well done!

I found the business blogging mistakes article of particular interest to me as I noted some others did. Of course, this entire resource mash-up has a lot for everybody whatever your particular area of interest.

Okay your list is intimidating. I adore it to the fullest and I was inspired to start a mashup type post of my own. Yet I don’t think it could come close to the freshness of what you do. I mean I would want different links because you’re awesome mashup already exists – I would cover a few different topics as well but my goodness!

I’m about to go look over the link building links, self development, photography and the business/career/finance set!

Keep doing what you do! Love it

I say a post should be at least 500 words and ideally not more than 1,000 as people tend to switch off. If a post gets to long, it’s better to chop up and do installments instead!
