Speedlinking – February's Most Vocal

by derek on March 3, 2008 · 17 comments

It is hard to believe that the calendar has turned to March already and this blog is closing in on the one year anniversary milestone.
Here it is nearly 12 months since this blog began and the community continues to grow and new voices continue to be heard. It is always exciting to see you participate via the comments as your feedback and opinions are truly appreciated.
For the month of February, the following readers have been the most vocal.

Top Commentators February 2008

1. Nicole Price from Great Prices Here secured the top spot with 17 comments. Nicole recently shared some great deals on TVs for those looking for an LCD or Plasma in the sub-$1000 range. Be sure to check out these hot TV deals as well, which is where I am watching for the best deal on a Sony 52″ XBR5 LCD..
2. Matt from Goodnight Moon Futon came in second with a total of 14 comments. The other day Matt had a crazy night as he had to perform the Heimlich Maneuver on his wife’s grandmother. One suggestion Matt – I’d love to see the titles of your posts turned into links, but regardless we are glad to hear that everything turned out okay!
3. Furniture Store secured a tie for second place with 14 comments. If you find yourself in need of furniture – and have plenty of money to spend – head on over and take a look to see if you can find something that suits your taste.
4. Brewster rounded out the three-way tie for 2nd place with 14 comments. Be sure to stop by and say hello to Brewster, as he is making a new start in the new month with some changes to his theme. In addition, he is going to be experimenting with the ability to make some money with his blog. Best to you Joe and let us know how it goes!
5. Home Recording Studio came in third – or fifth depending on how you look at it – with 13 comments. If you’re like me and don’t always understand some of the audiophile jargon, be sure to take a look at the music dictionary to improve your knowledge.
6. Normally I only highlight the top five commentators, but this month there was a tie for the last spot as Cesar from Wlogz.com also checked in with 13 comments. Cesar’s site appears to be dedicated to anime – which I’ll admit really isn’t my thing but some of you might enjoy it. I’d like to see an “About” page to learn more, what do you think Cesar?
Whether you were in one of the top spots this month or only contributed one comment, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts and opinions. Your participation on this blog is truly appreciated and I look forward to hearing more from you.
Do you have what it takes to be the most vocal in March?

Hi Derek,
Thanks for the post, I’ve been meaning to fix that on my blog. Now I’ll actually have to. 🙂


derek March 3, 2008 at 9:30 pm

Lol, you’re welcome. It took me a minute to realize the date was linked to your single post page and I just had to mention that it would be nice to have the title as a link. 😉


Ling March 3, 2008 at 10:20 pm

Darn. Everytime I see your top commenters post, I resolve to make that list the next time, but somehow it doesn’t work out. Guess I need some sort of reminder to post comments here everyday. 🙂


Kelvin March 3, 2008 at 10:27 pm

One day I shall make it onto this list.


Furniture Store March 4, 2008 at 12:18 am

Thanks for the mention Derek. i love seeing the mention here every month!


Home Recording Studio March 4, 2008 at 4:06 am

Thank you for the special mention. No, I do not intend getting tied again. Shall be more regular I think!


Nicole Price March 4, 2008 at 4:19 am

Thanks for the link Derek. Hope to keep up this month too.


Futon-Matt March 4, 2008 at 9:05 am

I agree, this is my first month in the top 5 and it’s quite nice. 🙂


Brewster March 4, 2008 at 2:01 pm

Thanks for the mention and the words of encouragement. I’ve enjoyed commenting on your blog.
Mentioning your top commenters each month centainly seems to get you lots of comments. Which addon do you use?


derek March 4, 2008 at 10:43 pm

For the list in the sidebar, I am using the Show Top Commentators plugin.
On the first Monday of each month, I dedicate the Speedlinking post to an additional shout for the top five commentators from the previous month. I’m a firm believer in sharing the link love! 🙂


Brewster March 5, 2008 at 1:46 pm

I think sharing some link love helps to keep a good readership with active commenters.


Nicole Price March 6, 2008 at 3:14 am

And we love you for that!


Soa March 4, 2008 at 3:09 pm

wow i didn’t even know that a list like this existed. Ill deff be on it next month =)


derek March 4, 2008 at 10:45 pm

Looks like there may be some new challengers this month for the top five spots – good luck to everyone and hopefully we can create some quality dialog!


Cesar March 5, 2008 at 1:19 am

Hi Derek, thank you for adding me in the list. Yes, my blog is an anime but a week ago, it was actually my personal blog where I also add anime videos because I like to watch anime.
Then in the first month only I got more than 12.000 unique from anime, so I decided to specialize my blog to anime and moved my personal blog to HetBlog.com.
Thank you again and I also work on my about page.


Jayson March 5, 2008 at 2:11 pm

Hey congratulations on your 1 year anniversary – from what it looks like you’re doing extremely well.


Eva White March 7, 2008 at 5:15 am

Great to see the blog growing. I like the stuff that you write.
