Some Blogging Love I Need To Share

Yep, the Easter celebrations is over and I am a cool 2 kilos heavier. That will teach me for stuffing my face. Maybe I should give Troy’s Elvis Workout a go. Either way I definitely have to start working out again. Especially now that I’m getting older and it’s so much easier for the weight to creep on.

I’ve been visiting a few sites of late and I’ve decided to share a bit of link love. As you can see, Troy was the first on the list.  :homage:  

It’s very important that one looks after ones blog and the best way to do that is to keep it secure. The last thing that you want is for someone to hack it and to watch all that hard work disappear before your eyes. Sure, you could get the info back but it sure isn’t easy. I found Barb’s post on Blog Security very intriguing, especially because it introduces a plugin I’ve never heard of.

My good mate Mitch has written a cool post about Ten Writing Tips in 3 Minutes. Mitch knows his blogging and you can learn a lot from him. Something he does quite a lot is internal linking. Partly because it’s a good SEO tactic but also because it can lead to people staying longer on his blog if they choose to explore his links. (more…)

Giving A Bit Of Love To My Cool Blog Links Members

It’s been quite some time since I did a post giving the top ten members of Cool Blog Links a little bit of link luv. Actually when looking back I was surprised to find out that the last post, Cool Blog Links Top 10 Coolest Blogs, was written on the 29th of May 2010. Weird that because I honestly thought it was only a few months ago. Just goes to show how time flies when you’re having fun :day_dreaming:

When I did that post the site had a whole 19 members and in just under two years it has grown to a whopping 20 members. Yeah, you can all stop laughing because even though the numbers are low the members are all proud to be a part of Cool Blog Links. Anyway, without further ado here are the current Top Ten Coolest Blogs.

My Favourite Posts And Why I Liked Them

Even without doing any blog hopping I can just imagine all the blogs out there that are doing posts on new years resolution or about how you should be doing your business plans for the coming year. Not me! :smoke_tb:  Nope, I don't do new years resolutions and I've never willingly done a business plan. Sure they're a good idea to keep people focused and to help them with building a strategy to follow but they have never interested me. I'm not even going to do a post about how things transpired last year because I covered that in my last post, A Recap Of 2011 And Best Wishes For 2012. Instead I want to write a post that may reveal a little about myself as well as giving my readers a chance to promote their favourite post. My Favourite All Time Posts I reckon that pretty well gives you an idea what this post will be about. I'm hoping that in sharing my favourite all time posts you may get an inkling of what sort of things appeal to me and in knowing that perhaps a little of what makes me tick. Interview With Maddy Cuttsworth Over PR Update: This was an interview I did with an imaginary person but one who represented an actual real life personality. It shouldn't be too hard for you to work out who it is :wink_ee: I love this post because I had fun with it and it appears a lot of my readers enjoyed it…
