Speedlinking – 13 Aug 2007

by derek on August 13, 2007 · 6 comments

With my Speedlinking series I like to highlight posts that I find to be particularly useful or interesting but I also like to simply share a little link love with those that take the time to visit my site.
For this edition of Speedlinking, I’ll be highlighting the five most recent visitors according to the MyBlogLog widget at the bottom of the page. If you didn’t make it this time around, be sure to stay active as you may be selected next week.
Before I get to the posts for this week, I’d like to give my son a little recognition as today is his birthday and we had an outstanding day together. Happy birthday buddy! 🙂
1. ExcelJohn runs a site called Excel Hints. As you would expect, ExcelJohn is focused on tips, tricks and hints for Microsoft Excel users. While I use OpenOffice.org at home, many of the Excel tips work as well so I hope he will find the time to keep this site updated as I see quite a bit of potential on this site.
2. lornadoone authors the site Something Good. The other day Lorna was on a mission to satisfy a craving for a sammich and realized how one of the smallest, easiest actions can have a positive effect on your day and possibly others’ as well. I’ll be trying this out tomorrow but what I really want to know is what kind of sammich Lorna was craving? 🙂
3. RealityTVNewsBlog runs a site about…wait for the surprise…Reality TV News. To be honest, I’ve tuned out of most of the reality shows lately as they just haven’t been all that interesting. Last night I just caught the latest season premier of The Real World and my wife and I have also seen a few episodes of Scott Baio is 45 and Single. As I said, most reality shows are not all that good anymore.
4. primeAD is the owner behind prime advertising and design. Similar to what I have done with this site, primeAD recently featured an article about how your site can stand out with a functional footer. If you haven’t done so with my new design, scroll down and check out the links in my footer. 🙂
5. yeepage is the author over at Yeepage Journal. Similar to my philosophy here of trying to respond to each comment, yeepage discusses how comments will get you noticed. As Yeepage just found out, being a frequent visitor to this site will also get you noticed!
I hope you’ve enjoyed the posts featured here in this edition of Speedlinking. I’m off to check on the leftover birthday cake before the night is over.

Stay In The Loop!

I’m loathe to admit this since I’m pregnant and should be eating super-healthy foods all the time, but it was an Arby’s roast beef sandwich that had me standing in line at the mall. (It was delicious, too!)

Wow, I had hopes that it was something really unique and tasty! 🙂
I’m not sure that I have ever seen a line at the Arby’s around here but I do think the roast beef sandwich is good every now and then.
Thanks for stopping by and completing the puzzle Lorna!

Happy Birthday to your son. Off to lurk around the links that you mentioned.

Thanks Rose, I’ll pass that along to him! Hope you enjoy the posts and find some good information.

Thanks for the link Derek. I’ve been working on some other sites and haven’t had time to update Excel Hints lately, but I’m about to get back at it.

You’re welcome John and thanks for the update!
