Great week all around for the blog we had our biggest single week ever with Traffic, began our first RSS Signup contest, had more comments then ever, AND read some truly great posts out there this week.
First on the RSS signup contest, there were some questions emailed to me. The contest will run for the next four weeks. On each Saturday night during the contest I will run a list randomizer to pick a winner from my Email RSS list. Unfortunately there is no way for me to pull the regular RSS list as well, so if you are a standard RSS reader, just sign up for the email version to enter yourself in the contest! Second there is NO cost to enter, just sign-up! And last NO you don't need to enter every week, just once and you are in for every drawing. So enter early, to be entered into all of them!
Next it is time for my Best of the Web:
- ShoeMoney - A great Post/Video this morning. A Rap about SEO (Search Engine Optimization). Great starter course in the shape of a Rap tune...pretty original, and catchy!
- Collecting My Cash - This post shows really well that good people are hard to find, but you better do whatever you can to keep your Great people, which Wealthy! is...of course!
- Catherine Lawson - A Total favorite blog (and person!) had a neat article talking about Bands blogs. Being a musician at heart, if not at practice, this had great points for all bloggers!
- Ian Denny/ Phoenix From the Ashes - Every time I read his blog it feels like I am reading the beginning chapter about a future king of the business world! This lesson is about Cash Flow. It is written in the Business Sense but it plays the same for all of us.
- John Chow - John is one of the most successful bloggers out there. In this post he explains why you should set up your business separate from yourself.
