Speedlinking – 27 Aug 2007

by derek on August 27, 2007 · 4 comments

In this week’s edition of Speedlinking I am going to feature a few posts and/or discussions that caught my eye this week around the blogosphere.
Since I just wrapped up my fantasy football live draft, I will give you five rounds of posts to enjoy:
1st Round :: Dawud Miracle wrote a great post over at eMomsAtHome that asks the question – Are you letting fear control your business? Not only is it interesting to see how your emotions can influence other people, including your children, but how you can find applicable business lessons in all aspects of your life.
2nd Round :: ShoeMoney posted about the DMOZ extortion email that he received. As many times as I read that getting listed in DMOZ was essential for new sites, I gave up hope on DMOZ long ago and this discussion over at ShoeMoney is one of the primary reasons.
3rd Round :: Rose DesRochers is dealing with her teenage daughter that wants to get a tattoo and piercing. As I told Rose, I likely have a different perspective than many because I have tattoos and piercings myself but if my children come to me with this request I will support their decision and discuss it with them.
4th Round :: Damien Riley put up a post about the idea of making money from open source that was being discussed over at Tech Crunch. I’d like to encourage you to stop by Damien’s site and join in the discussion.
5th Round :: In the last round of my Speedlinking draft, I’d like to just give a note of congratulations to Dave Pitlyuk as he has finally hit 100 RSS subscribers. This may seem like nothing special to some of you but I know that I can appreciate the effort that this takes as I am trying to get there myself.
There were many more posts that I encountered this week that were worthy of consideration and would have been listed if my fantasy Speedlinking draft lasted more than five rounds. To those posts I will say, there is always next week!
Hope you enjoy this edition of Speedlinking!

Thank you for the link love. I’m honored. Now I’m dealing with other teenage issues. lol

You’re welcome! I’ve still got a handful of years before we hit the teen years so we are cherishing the time we still have. 🙂

Thanks for the congratulations! Just keep at it and it will come! I’ve dipped back in the 90’s, but as a positive, it seems like it’s pretty steady there. I’m sure more time, and it will always stay above 100.

I’ve been in the high 80’s and low 90’s for awhile now so I’m getting there.
