    Thanks for all those links! Now I’ve got a few more things to read. :)

  • YC, December 8, 2007

    Thanks for the link, Steven! You certainly read widely!

  • Tay - Super Blogging, December 8, 2007

    Thanks for the link, Steven! These look like some great articles and I’m going to read them all. ;)

  • Tay - Super Blogging, December 8, 2007

    Sorry for another comment, but I’m just wondering Steven – exactly how many sites are you subscribed to in your reader and how do you find all the articles you link out to each week? Your weekly compilations are always magnificent. :)

  • Vandelay Design, December 8, 2007

    Hi Tay,
    You’re welcome for the link and there’s no need to ever apologize for a comment. I think I’m subscribed to around 200 feeds. Throughout the week I star posts in Google reader that I want to link to. So then at the end of the week I go to my starred posts and there they are waiting for me. Plus, I look at who has commented a few times throughout the week and look for something of theirs that I can link to. Plus I also look sometimes at incoming links and also at my friends from StumbleUpon. I try to use links to give information to subscribers and also to thank people who have helped me in one way or another throughout the week. This week’s list was a little long. Maybe it would be more effective to have fewer links.

  • Tay - Super Blogging, December 8, 2007


    Thanks for letting me know. It always seems like you have so many sources and you’re always extremely organized about it, too. One of my favorite parts about the week are my Best of the Blogosphere roundups, and I’m always looking for ways to make them better. I subscribed to quite a few of the sites you’ve listed above as well – many of them provide some great quality information. Thanks again! :)

  • Naomi Dunford, December 8, 2007


    Thank you so much for linking to “How Not To Suck At Marketing”. That was my first real guest post and it was wonderful to see it make your round-up. Of course, now I have to delay writing the next one because I have a dozen new things to read. :)

  • vectevs, December 9, 2007

    It is great!!!


  • Dustin Brewer, December 10, 2007

    Sorry for the mistake. I’ll change that right now.

    You’re welcome!

  • Madhur Kapoor, December 11, 2007

    Thanks for the link love Steven. The list contains some wonderful articles.

  • Ana Montebon, December 13, 2007

    Help! What does one do with a tidal wave of great links at the onset of Christmas season-the busiest time for me. Thanks once again and keep up the great work. All I want for Christmas is an 8 day week and an maybe an additional 4 hours per day.

  • Vandelay Design, December 13, 2007

    Good luck with that wish. Let me know if you find a solution.

  • Mike, December 14, 2007
