Speedlinking – 02 Jul 2007

by derek on July 2, 2007 · 12 comments

With another month coming to an end, I am going to use this edition of Speedlinking to recognize the Top Commentators from the month of July.
We’ve had some interesting discussions and I appreciate everyone that takes the time to share their thoughts and opinions. Last month I had the honor of having my first truly negative comment on my post about being a better husband. But the thing that really made me happy was how many of you quickly provided your voice of support and encouragement!
Without further ado, I’d like to encourage you to pay the following people a visit and thank them for their participation here:

Top Commentators

1. The top spot for the month of June was taken by Derrich with 20 comments. Last week Derrich somehow scored a VIP pass to the Bud Light Maxim Hookup (very jealous) and shared his thoughts on being kicked to the curb by Technorati. I’ve also been experiencing some odd behavior with the listing for this blog at Technorati so hopefully there aren’t any problems brewing.
2. In 2nd place, Leo Chiang shared his *Trekkie Ninja Chinaman* wisdom with us 14 times. With his weekly Hump Day Video feature, Leo shares a little bit about his world of close combat with two video clips from Bas Rutten. In addition, Leo took some time to share 8 fun facts about himself and was gracious enough to tag me to do the same.
3. Just behind Leo in the 3rd spot is MsDanielle with 12 comments. Danielle continues to provide outstanding content and had a great post where she gave a shout out to some of the up and coming female bloggers that she has been following. She then shared some of her outstanding industry knowledge with a great post on why PPC and SEO go hand-in-hand for online businesses – be sure to check out the great graphical representation! πŸ˜‰ Danielle closed the week by providing us some insight on porn for women!
4. Damien Riley has been having a good time with his blog and found his blog freedom at last. Be sure to check out his post on 6 pop culture questions that I have asked myself a few times before. Damien also had a great post on StumbleUpon karma but while I have the post in my RSS reader the post is nowhere to be found on his site.
5. Chris Gray from SEO Ladder rounds out the Top Commentators for the month with 9 comments. Chris puts out some great content and as much as I would like to recognize him with a few links to current posts, he hasn’t shared any new posts for a few weeks now. I’ll be watching my RSS reader for some new entries from SEO Ladder.
That concludes this edition of Speedlinking. With the first Speedlinking post of the month dedicated to the Top Commentators, be sure to stay active with your comments. As you can see from the list above, it shouldn’t be too difficult to secure a spot in the top 5 and you’ll be rewarded with a few extra back links – which never hurt from a PR4 site.
Next week I think I am going to try something new with the Speedlinking where I will be accepting reader submissions. If you have a blog or particular post that you want to get in front of everyone, just drop me a line to let me know what you would like included and why it should be considered for the next Speedlinking.

Recognizing top commentors is a great way to get comments. I’m hooked.


Damien Riley July 2, 2007 at 12:02 pm

Yeah, where did that Stumble Karma post go??? Not sure TBH. I reposted it here though, I agree it has a good thought. Thanks for mentioning me in your list:
Stumble Karma

@Bryan :: I’m always happy to give credit to those that help make this site more interesting. Hopefully I will see your name in the top 5 for July!
@Damien :: Lol, I wasn’t sure what happened as I had marked the post in my RSS reader but when I went to get the URL to include in my post I was getting a 404. Thanks for linking to the updated post.


Derrich July 2, 2007 at 11:43 pm

I don’t know what happened. I was a commenting machine this month…borderline spammenter.


Leo July 3, 2007 at 1:16 am

You whore! πŸ˜‰
Steal MY thunder will ya?


Chris Gray July 6, 2007 at 8:55 pm

Thanks for the including me this month…even though I killed any hope for additional comments on your last speed linking post – http://dereksemmler.com/2007/06/11/speedlinking-11-jun-2007. Why does everyone gotta get all freaked out when you say “stalker” in comments…geeesh?
Yeah, I have been slacking in the post department…I’ll try and get something up in the next few days.


derek July 7, 2007 at 2:48 pm

Lol, way to go Chris! You probably just killed the comments here as well with that “S” word. πŸ˜‰


Chris Gray July 7, 2007 at 7:53 pm

Aw c’mon, I’m just trying to help you win the next long tail contest. Can you say burnt cheese stalker!?


Russell Wagner July 9, 2007 at 9:36 pm

I think I will be in next months speedlinking about top commentators. I bet I will fall in 2nd or 3rd place.


derek July 10, 2007 at 12:12 am

You’ve got a pretty good shot as you have been rather busy tonight! πŸ˜†


Leo July 10, 2007 at 2:12 am

We have a new whore in town πŸ˜‰


Derrich July 10, 2007 at 10:33 am

Who you callin’ whore, former whore?
