Speedlinking – Sweetness

by derek on September 8, 2008 · 32 comments

Walter Payton

Growing up as a kid living in the Chicagoland area, I had the pleasure of watching Walter “Sweetness” Payton run up and down the field every Sunday afternoon during football season.
While watching the Chicago Bears game last night, Matt Forte did something that Sweetness could not do, dominate in his Bears debut – although he has a long road before he can ever truly be mentioned in the same sentence as Walter Payton.
In honor of Sweetness, and given that today is my 34th 33rd birthday (in a sign of my age, I thought that I was turning 34 hence the tie in to Sweetness’ number 34, oh well), I thought that I would use this edition of Speedlinking to send a little link love to 34 blogs that I read on a regular basis.
When you have a few moments, check out the following blogs:

  1. Internet Marketing News | Marketing Pilgrim
  2. A Good Husband: Marriage & Relationship Advice
  3. Building Camelot
  4. Daddee Yah!
  5. Discovering Dad

  13. Zen Habits
  14. aimClear Search Marketing Blog

  22. BlueFur Blog
  23. Postcards from the Funny Farm
  24. Chris Brogan

  29. The Art of Manliness
  30. Enkay Blog
  31. Zac Johnson :: Super Affiliate
  32. According to Andrea
  33. Rippin Kitten
  34. Dosh Dosh

There are many more blogs that I read on a regular basis that are deserving of being listed here. My apologies to anyone that I was not able to include, but I didn’t want to turn this into an exhaustive list of every blog that I read and enjoy.
Now, I have some birthday candles to go blow out…

I’d say I already read about a quarter of those blogs you’ve listed. Seems like we have similar tastes so I’ll check out some of the other ones 😉

All, thank you very much for the birthday wishes! It was a fantastic day – and I even was able to get a year younger once I realized that I was turning 33 and not 34.

That really has got to be a bonus! Actually getting younger on your birthday! (almost)!

Happy Belated Birthday!!!
It’s amazing how many different blogs a person can keep up with. I thought 34 sounded like alot, but then I counted my feedreader and discovered that my number is very similar, I just hadn’t thought to count them.
