Hi DiTesco

Thanks for the weekly roundup. You have definitely been busy with getting these posts up and ready for us to go and visit. Thanks so much DiTesco.

BTW When you next visit you will be in for a surprise. Have a new look and my first guest poster 🙂

Hi Patricia. Thanks for taking the time to drop by. I’ve just visited your awesome newly designed site and I have to admit that you and your designer did a hell of a good job. Love the colors and the way it blends with your niche… Really great. Keep it up

A dear blogging friend offered to do it for me. She knew I had trouble with all things techie and offered to do what needed doing. Then she offered to give the blog a new look. I just said what I liked and that is what she came up with 🙂 I am writing some feature articles on her site as English is her second language.

I really love writing and art so it is a joy doing the posts for her site. She is a true geek and SEO specialist so I am so blessed that we connected up; just from commenting on a mutual friend’s site. Unbeknown to me she had been visiting my blog and reading my posts and then got the courage to comment.

What a wonderful community of bloggers out there. And thanks for the kind words about my blog.

Yeah, The Synergy made the cut! Cool bean. 😉

You know I really like your speed link. Just some link dropping of cool stuff … quick and easy. Unlike mine … 3 hours later I’M wrapping it up!

Busy weekend ahead, but I will definitely check out your ‘must read’ and your ‘shameless self-promotion’ (if I haven’t done so already 😉 ).

All the best!

LOL, Michele, you got that one about my shameless “self” promotion 🙂 I deliberately took out the self, but you managed to squeeze it in there, haha.. sharp eye.

As for your Wrap, yeah, I am still wondering how much time you put it there, I mean it might take several hours to get it done, but you’ve forgot the time you spent you visiting, commenting and all that… I really am impressed and your challenge seems to be paying off, right?

Just read Kiesha’s post… a very well deserved promotion! And yes, the challenge is paying off. 😉

Hi DiTesco,

I have read some of those but miss some too. Quite a number of post on different categories, good to read some of the different posts.

Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hi Ben. How are you doing? Good to see you here. Thanks for stopping by and hope to see more from you here in the future 🙂

Your first SpeedLink was a great one DiTesco. I see a lot of articles here that I am planning on reading today. Thanks for sharing all these great posts with us and I look forward to seeing more SpeedLink posts.

Just came back from google’s post about spam. I hope they will get to perfect the art of finding spammy website and those that copy content and rank higher then the source.

You really were busy finding all this posts. I’ll try to read them all, although there are so many I don’t think I will manage to do it.

Great share!

12 DiTesco January 25, 2011 at 12:20 pm

Hi Alex. I’m with you on Google. As for reading them all, well if you the time that will be great, otherwise, pick what interest you more and stay with that. There is “flavor” for everyone’s taste (I hope, haha) Thanks for stopping by.

Hi DiTesco,

Great list you have here.

And thank you for including my Sticky Post post 🙂

There are a few things that look interesting, so I need to go check them out 🙂

Thanks again!


14 DiTesco January 25, 2011 at 12:19 pm

Hi Rick. Good stuff is god stuff and your post deserves to “stick”, all over the web if possible, lol.

Thanks for including my (or..I should say El Edward’s) Twitter post in your round up. I am going to spend some time reading some of the links. I just finished reading the Google article. I have not noticed an increase of spam from Google but it is nice to know they are on top of it none the less. Thanks for putting this round up together. I used to do this as well and I know it takes a lot of time, so much appreciated.

16 DiTesco January 25, 2011 at 12:16 pm

Welcome Dan. I found the post via your blog so I guess, that’s that 🙂 As for Google taking the boosting the effort to fight SPAM, yeah, kudos I guess.

I know there are a lot of weekly roundups around but that’s a good thing because the net is such a big place one person couldn’t possibly do it all on their own. Another positive is that you get different perspectives depending on who is doing the roundup.

You’ve got quite a few links here so I reckon you’ve been keeping yourself busy. I usually only have time for one link to check per roundup, and that’s just what I’m going to do once I hit submit.

18 DiTesco January 25, 2011 at 12:18 pm

Hi Sire. One is good as I am pretty much sure that you may have seen some of them already. The idea is to pick something that is of interest to you 🙂 as for the prepartion, yeah, it took a little bit of time, but way less than the previous Echo’s where I had to write summaries, images and all that.

19 Sire January 25, 2011 at 9:58 pm

Which is another good reason why people should use eye catching titles, so that when others see them in roundups or even in commentluv links, they just have to click on them to find out what they’re all about. 😉
