Speedlinking the Best of the WeekBy
It’s been a little quiet here this week because its the end of the month and I have been jamming to try to get some projects wrapped up. I have been working on two sites this month that are what we would consider to be traditional, semi-static websites that are being built using WordPress as a CMS. Once each site is launched, I will certainly share them with you.
I also did a little modifying to my Casual Keystrokes site so it could be ready to go Pink for October in support of Breast Cancer awareness month. I’ll warn you – it is PINK and girlie, but I am really happy about how it turned out. While you are checking it out, you can see who else is going pink for the month.
While I have been doing a lot of reading this week, I haven’t been commenting as much – not sure why, but I plan to change that this coming week. Here are some of my favorite posts this week:
- Ben asks “Are You Ready For Writer’s Block?” – this is something we all deal with at some point and he offers up many good strategies for getting past it.
- At Performancing we are reminded of the importance of forums as part of social networking – some of my best online relationships are the result of actively participating in forums.
- Wendy wants to know what your favorite online moneymaker is? Me – I am very partial to TextLinkAds, too, but have had great success with Adsense (of all things) on some of my niche sites.
- David Airey asks if we follow logo design trends. Anyone remember how every logo a few years back had some form of an oval around it?
- Digital Inspiration shared one of the coolest online apps I have played with in a while – FlauntR. FlauntR allows you to easily add a variety of frames/borders to your images. Way cool.
- Gayla is pondering Top 10 Overkill. Lists are a popular link baiting technique, but also a great way to share a lot of ideas quickly. Are they getting too popular?
- And Ed at Evolving Times talks to the geek in all of us when he teaches us how to install love – very creative!
- Darren at ProBlogger wants to know what WordPress plugins we consider essential. I’ll be posting my list later this week. How about you?
Here’s to another productive week!!
