Weekly Link Round-Up

For some reason I've been distracted this week. It's probably just a matter of finally getting my first taste of cooler autumn weather and enjoying it so much that my mind wouldn't settle on things like blogging and link hunting. Let's see what I did manage to round up for you....

Different Reactions to the FTC & Blogging
Around the Water Cooler in the Book Blogosphere
Blogging and Social Media
  • How to Take Your Blog to the Next Level at ProBlogger.
  • How I'd Promote My Blog If I Were Starting Out Again at ProBlogger.
  • Reasons to Have a Vanity Folder at ProBlogger. (It's a ProBlogger kind of week!)
  • Want to find out how long your blog page takes to load? Go to Pingdom.
  • Do you use Firefox and Google Reader and do you hate switching between screens in order to comment on a post? Firefox has add-ons that will get rid of that particular headache for you. Install Better GReader, and a "Preview" option will show at the bottom of the post. When you click on it, the post will open right in Google Reader and allow you to comment without switching screens or tabs. I'm running the latest version of Firefox and Windows Vista. I have heard that others have also had to download an additional add-on called GreaseMonkey. Now I'll be leaving more comments!
New to My Google Reader
That's it for this week. Stop by next Sunday when I'll have a fresh batch of links for you to wander through!


  1. Good list as always! I missed Elizabeth's post for some reason, so I'm glad you linked it here.

  7. Alita--You're welcome! :)

    Jeanne--I hate that "I'm soooooo behind!" feeling, don't you? Yuck! Here's hoping you get caught up soon.
