Speedlinking – 21 May 2007

by derek on May 21, 2007 · 8 comments

For this edition of Speedlinking, I decided to go through the posts that I had “Starred” in my Google Reader and highlight a few from last week that I thought were extra special.
1. Damien Riley kicks things off with an outstanding post about the struggles of asking for and accepting help from others. Like Damien, I’ve been hesitant to ask for help in the past as I never want to bother others but I have learned it is just as important to ask for help when needed as it is to provide help to others.
2. Tyler Ingram has added his blog to the U-Comment-I-Follow movement. As you might recall, I joined the DoFollow movement late last week as well so I have to give Tyler the credit as well. If you are not familiar with Tyler’s site, his site is a completely custom site and he codes everything himself to stay sharp on his programming skills. Great job Tyler!
3. Nick has provided a great post about why it is important to be yourself. This post really stood out to me because as I wrote about on my personal finance site, my wife and I were not able to eliminate our debt until we were able to be honest with ourselves.
4. Wendy Piersall struggled with publishing her post on being scared with success. As I mentioned to THE Wendy in the comments of her post, I am very happy she published this post and feel that she has been handling success for quite some time now by helping other bloggers like myself learn and grow.
5. Natron detailed a few ways for entrepreneurs to avoid home business burnout. As someone that holds down the 40+ hour job during the day and tries my best to kickstart the entrepreneurial spirit in the evenings and weekends, I need to be sure to follow some of these suggestions.
That concludes this week’s edition of Speedlinking and I really hope you enjoy these posts as much as I did when I first read them. This week the posts were compiled from RSS feeds that I subscribe to and next week I think I will be looking to the MyBlogLog widget for some blogs with exceptional posts.
Be sure to stay active on this site so I see your avatar in the MBL widget!

Thanks for the mention Derek – I’m so glad you got something out of that post! It was hard to write, so it makes it all worth it to see this. 🙂 Hugs!

Derek my man! How the hell are ya? Was reading YOU on my Google reader and saw my post on this amazing list. Hopefully we’ll get some future posts from Nick on his subject! One of my favorite ones! Thanks for the traffic brother, have a good day! -Damien

Woo more link love hehe!
Thanks for the link! I really got to figure out a way to do trackbacks and pingbacks for my site.

Glad to see the U-Comment-I-Follow movement growing. People are often locked into the “Google Box” of thinking.

@Wendy – You’re quite welcome. Hopefully a few new people found your post as I think it is something that can benefit anyone.
@Damien – Doing great after a week spent in Orlando! Glad to have you part of the speedlinking.
@Natron – You’re welcome, now get back to work! 😉
@Tyler – I’m sure the trackbacks would help you as I am sure it makes it more difficult for you to find references/links to your site.
@Buxr – Since joining the dofollow movement I’ve heard from a bunch of people that have done the same so it is great to see. Thanks for stopping by.
@SAT – No problem at all, glad to share!
