Speedlinking – 11 Feb 2008

by derek on February 11, 2008 · 6 comments

It is that time again to spread a little link love around the blogosphere with this edition of Speedlinking. The posts have been piling up in my Google Reader and I’ve got a few that I would like to share with all of you.
1. Matt over at Blog About Your Blog recently took a moment to answer the question: What is Bounce Rate? Depending on the nature of your site and how visitors find your site, a high bounce rate isn’t always a bad thing but it helps to understand the details.
2. Wendy Piersall recently shared a guest post over at Freelance Parent and provided a look at 20 cheap or free ways to get more work as a freelancer. While I know there are a few freelancers in the crowd, I think many of these tips can apply to all of us that operate our own blogs.
3. Daniel Scocco from Daily Blog Tips recently wrote a guest post at ProBlogger where he discussed how to find private advertisers for your blog. This is something I have had some experience with on my personal finance blog and Daniel has provided some very useful tips.
4. Leo Babauta from Zen Habits provided some outstanding advice for anyone looking to shed a few pounds with 17 fitness truths to get you in great shape. As an added note, in case you missed it last week, I had a chance to interview Leo Babauta over at Dad Balance so be sure to check that out as well.
5. Damien Riley over at Postcards from the Funny Farm has shared a few thoughts on his recent drop in PageRank because he is a Postie. Damien has a few bullet points that I feel truly define what is important in evaluating your blog so be sure to stop by and share your thoughts.
Hopefully you find a few extra minutes to check out each of these posts as I don’t think you will be disappointed – as I know that I enjoyed each of them.
As a reminder, there is still time to enter my t-shirt giveaway. It is very easy to enter so don’t miss out on the chance to win.

I found your site on technorati and read a few of your other posts. Keep up the good work. I just added your RSS feed to my Google News Reader. Looking forward to reading more from you.

two excellent articles in “Blog about your Blog” which cleared you my doubts in Bounce rates and “dailyblogtips” article on advertising

I found Zen Habits quite interesting and useful.

I like the post of Daniel Scocco about how to find private advertisers for your blog. If you can find a good private advertiser you can earn more from it.
