Speedlinking – 16 Jul 2007

by derek on July 16, 2007 · 12 comments

Last week I introduced a few of my favorite personal finance blogs in the weekly Speedlinking edition and I sincerely hope that some of you found some valuable information.
For this edition of Speedlinking, I am going to turn to a few of the new faces that have found their way to this site. Some of the new faces are likely a result of my post on Mr. Flexibility :: Finding Work-Life Balance that was included in the group research project on eMoms at Home.
If you are new here, I encourage you to FEED ME by subscribing to my full-feed RSS feed. That will allow you to keep tabs on the next time you might appear in a future Speedlinking edition!
On to the link love…
1. Joe Cheray has taken what must have been a very difficult step to share a very personal part of her life as she works on living above worry and stress. Be sure to check out the healthy bits as well. Joe, I’m drinking a glass of water as I type this post! 🙂
2. Brown Baron, who has one of the coolest avatars, just put up an outstanding post about the 10 Commandments of Blog Commenting. Not only that but Brown Baron includes some of the most popular, well respected bloggers in his link love posts! 😉
3. Jason is another resident of the Vancouver area so he should feel right at home with some of you. Jason discusses the problem with long distance relationships as his fiancee is in Japan. Being new to Jason’s site, I enjoyed reading 8 things about him and liked the randomness. Jason, I’m glad to hear that your fiancee was okay!
4. Marc Eilbeck stopped by to say thanks for the recognition of him reserving one of my Text-Link-Ads spots and now I am giving him a little more. Marc is back from his trip to Bulgaria and has a few photos to share and has a warning for Bidvertiser users. Check it out!
5. Blog-Contests stopped by to offer their site for advertising my contest when I win Mr. Gary Lee’s free iPhone. I’m new to this site but can see the potential for entering contests or submitting a contest to drive traffic. I’ll be keeping a close eye on this site.
That concludes this edition of Speedlinking and I would just like to take a second to thank everyone for visiting the site and participating in the comments. There were some new people that I was not able to include this time around but be sure to stay active as I feature 5 blogs every week.
Hopefully the new people will become active members of the community and more new people will find their way here!

Stay In The Loop!

Thank you for the link, and I’m glad my Reiko was safe, too. It’s amazing how a little bit of panic can make one appreciate the finer things in life ….
You have a great site here, Derek. I look forward to reading your posts 🙂

@Marc :: But of course!
@Victor :: Thanks for stopping by and I wish you the best with your own efforts to share the link love. I’m happy to hear that you picked up the idea here and will be making use of it yourself. I was first introduced to the Speedlinking type posts over at ProBlogger and loved the idea as well.
