Such a great list, Kristi! I was just about to click on the very first one in Blogging/Writing and work my way down but I noticed you included my post in the Personal Development section so I wanted to stop and thank you. Now back to this awesome list – time to read!

Have a great weekend!

Something to consider, Kristi: It would be nice to see the source of each of your links and some commentary in a sentence or two elaborating why you find the content valuable enough to share with us.

I can click links to figure out if valuable to me, but you’re sharing for a reason and I’m always curious why.

Ari, as many links as she’s putting out, and as often as she’s doing it, let’s just be satisfied with what she’s already giving us. We always seem to want more, even when we’re getting stuff for free.

Thanks again for a wonderful list, Kristi.

I’m with Mitch, I think Kristi’s putting a whole lot of work into these posts just by sourcing the links and categorizing them for us. I know she has a lot on her plate and I am more than happy with her efforts.

Hey Kristi, thanks for featuring my article on dealing with critical people! I hope your readers find it helpful. Great Fetching Friday once again! Thanks for sharing the video with Amy Tan – I really enjoyed it. I was very impressed by how she presented the whole content too – extremely engaging.

That is really a fantastic list – it will take several days to get through all these resources. I’m not even sure where to start – Google Buzz WordPress integration or the photography resources. Hey thanks!

Kristi, Awesome list as always! Some i have read..and some not…Will get t o all of them over the weekend.
One question Kristi…At the moment i am on and was thinking about shifting to my own domain name. offers a forwarding mapping facility. What i was wondering is that if i do change my domain name…will that affect my existing google ranks and will that also affect all the incoming links to the blog?
Much love,

Page rank is meaningless, so don’t worry about that. If you provide online content that is dynamic and that people like, comment on, and link to, then search engines notice it.

As far as your second question, if you change an existing link, then people would link to the old, not the new.

Not particularly… I’ll take a guest post on anything that fits with the blogging & social media theme. I like giving an outside perspective to readers here.

I love Ted talks. Thanks for reminding me of Amy Tans talk on creativity. I especially love her idea that creativity is a combination of Nature, Nurture and Nightmares.

Your Fetching Fridays always have a slew of cool stuff I like. Thanks.

I have been so out of touch the last few weeks due to my brick and mortar business’s FINALLY being in season, this is going to be a great start to getting caught up on things as it always is. Thank you Kristi.

wow nice resources again on Friday post i book mark your post i like the concept of enhance your blog comment and nice explain here and great tips for increassing traffic in blog thanks Kristi!!!
