Weekly Link Round-Up (February 22)

Here are some of the things that caught my interest while I wandered the Information Superhighway this past week:

Blogging and Social Media
  • Sociable Blog has an article about the Top Twitter Tools to Check Out in 2009.
  • Who's Amung Us has free code to use to track real-time statistics on your blog, and you don't even have to register.
  • Website Grader is a free SEO tool that you can use to check your blog traffic, search engine optimization, social popularity and other factors. It also gives you advice on how to improve them.
Fun Stuff
  • I found the Six Wives of Henry VIII Test at Hello Quizzy. Fortunately I wound up being one of the wives who managed to survive!
  • Oxford's World Classics has a five-question quiz for you to discover which OWC character you are. I was surprised when I wound up being Alice in Wonderland, since I never liked the book!
  • Quotiki is a social quotes wiki that lets you quickly find and enjoy quotes.
Blog Posts to Ponder/Enjoy
  • On her blog, Pattinase, Patti has a very interesting post titled One Nation Under God in which she asks, "What I wonder is why the US continues to exhibit such religiosity? Other than Islamic nations, such religious fervor is mostly absent in other nations. What would your explanation be?"
  • Nicole on her blog, I Meme It, had a post about Totie Fields, which was definitely a blast from my past. It was good to be reminded of this stand-up comic and be able to watch a video clip.
  • On Musings of Meggie, Peggy played along with The Bag Meme. I had fun reading, but I'm not sure I'm brave enough to play along, since I have to have one of the ugliest bags on record!
  • Maxine on her blog, Petrona, had an interesting post called True Confessions of a Blogger in which she talks about just how much "personal stuff" she feels comfortable sharing online. The comments are as interesting as the post.
What's caught your eye recently?
