Welcome to this week’s installment of SitW. Every Friday I link to blog posts I have liked & stumbled over the week. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.
- I want to start with Maki’s “How to Build a Successful News Blog: 10 Information Sources You Can Use“. He doesn’t post as much as he used to, but when he does, he delivers great content. This is no exception. Hint: Not only recommended for news-bloggers.
- At Search Engine Journal, Loren offers “Explosive Organic & Paid Link Building Tips“. And if Loren writes it, you know you want to read it. Don’t be afraid of the dirty p-word.
- Let’s lighten it up a little. I’ve always loved quote collections, so when I read Daniel’s “50 Thoughful, Funny and Polemic Blogging Quotes“, I just couldn’t resist to stumble it. There are some really nice ones in it.
- At Pure Blogging, Steven posted a list of “99 Ways to Improve Your Blog“, covering a lot of issues, from content to marketing and monetization. That should be enough to offer some useful tips for everyone.
- What? 99 is not enough for you? Uhm, okay. How about Khalid’s “152 Dos & Don’ts of Business Blogging“? Yeah, that’s what I thought. There’s some great advice, not only for the business blogger.
Okay, that’s it for this week’s SitW. If you stumble across a great post that you think should be included in next week’s installment, let me know. I’m always open for suggestions.
So, have a nice weekend, a good read, and don’t forget to give the posts you really like a thumb up.

Another week has gone by. Bill Gates is a welfare case (Although still richer than me. Damn you, PPC Campaigns!), Commission Junction is evil, and Hillary Clinton can win a primary or three.
What else is new? Oh, right. Today’s installment of SitW. Once again I give you a list of posts I liked so much, I had to give them a thumb up. Let’s get right to it.
Okay, that’s it for today. I hope some of these links will be useful for you. If they are - give them a thumb up to show your appreciation. It doesn’t take a lot of time, and is a great motivation for the writers.
I wish all of you a good read and a nice weekend.

Once again a week has gone by, and I want to share with you my favorite blog posts. Since it’s already 3 am, and I’m a little tired, I’ll spare you a long intro.
- As you might know, I’m always interested in the creative ways people useWordPress. So, the first post today is “48 Unique Ways To Use WordPress” over at Performancing. It’s a nice compilation that you shouldn’t miss.
- At ProBlogger, Alex Shalman’s “Ultimate Guide To Networking With Bloggers” gives you a couple of tips on how to approach and network with your fellow bloggers. Read it, it’s worth it. One of the best things about blogging are the people you’ll get to know.
- Today my list includes three “number-10-posts”, and the first is Andy MacDonald’s “Ten Web Publishing DONTs“. A must-read for these people who traded their common sense for a copy of MS Frontpage.
- For those who - like myself - are not native English speakers, Jarkko shares some of the lessons blogging has taught him in his “Ten Practical Tips for Writing in English“. One thing that really enhanced my English - comedians. In a way I used George Carlin, Denis Leary & Co as English teachers. Languages are so much easier to learn when you can laugh while doing it.
- My last link for today goes to Traffikd. While StumbleTraffic is always a nice thing to get, the people behind the traffic are often easily forgotten. So, read Steven’s “10 Ways to Be a Good StumbleUpon Friend” and next time one of your posts gets stumbled, remember that those stat numbers are actual people, and be nice.
Okay, that’s it for today. I hope you like this selection of posts, and if you do, don’t be shy - raise your thumb for them *g*.
I wish you all a good read and a nice weekend.

As usual, a new weekend brings a new installment of SitW. Once again I want to list my favorite blog posts of the week for your reading pleasure.
- Copyblogger’s “Keyword Research for Bloggers: A Comprehensive Guide” is not only a well-rounded guide, but also a surprisingly fun read. So, if you want to know about keyword research (and you should), don’t be afraid of the volume.
- If you rely on Adsense to monetize your blog, you should check out Josh Spaulding’s “10 Ways to Increase your Adsense Income“. Maybe you’ll want to test some of his tips.
- You want you blog to become one of the really big ones? Want to know what that includes? Read Skellie’s “What’s it Like to Run a Popular Blog?” If you are as good a writer as she is - just keep on posting, and you’ll eventually get there.
- I’m working on a new project (and letting the last one mature) that will include some PPC. Since I’m still putting together the framework, a lot of thought goes into SEO. When I read Aaron’s “Your Laziness: Why I Love SEO So Much More Than PPC“, I showed it to a friend and we got into an argument. He prefers PPC, I tend to think more about SEO. It’s like a chess game. PPC means playing against a kid that’s just learned the moves. The result is quick, sometimes you ask yourself what the hell that stupid imbecile is doing, and if you lose you’re contemplating suicide. SEO on the other hand is more like playing against a good chess program. It takes longer, your opponent learns from his mistakes and if you lose - revise your strategy and try again. Damn, way too much text *g*.
- One of first things I did for the new project: I printed out Carsten Cumbrowski’s “50 Questions to Evaluate the Quality of Your Website“. It’s brilliant checklist. Once I think the project’s done, I’ll go through it, and I’m sure that there will be some things I overlooked.
- Just in case you haven’t read about it yet: Blizzard IM has released a “SEO for WordPress Blogs White Paper” for free download.
That’s it for today. Have fun reading and if you like a post, be nice and show the author you appreciation.
Have a nice weekend.
