Yeah, that doesn’t really sound right does it? Hmmm…well, at least I tried! Don’t make fun! The name nittyGriddy doesn’t give me much room to work with, okay?! Mashable has it easy with Mashers, TechCrunch with Crunchers, Boing Boing with Boingers, CopyBlogger with…oooh tough one…CopyBloggers! Needless to say, I just made all these up. But you get my meaning. So, a little compassion for my sudden lack of creativity would be nice, thank you ;). Either that or here’s a thought…you suggest another option for me!
Alright, give me some Link Luv now!
Welcome to the second week of “SuperPost Sunday!” Damn it! That’s not the name I originally gave this weekly series. Okay people. It seems I seriously need your help today. I am the most indecisive person I know and therefore am gonna’ need you to vote on a name for my weekly roundup. I’m giving you 3 + 1 options (I started with 6 – yikes!) below and I’ll go with the most popular one. Or, what is most likely to happen, is that I’ll find a way to use both (mix & match) because if you recall from last Sunday’s weekly roundup, I said a little something about being spoiled and that… “if I have a choice, and cannot choose, I choose them all.”
So here goes. What do you think I should I name my weekly series?
- Link Luv – Weekly Roundup (same as now – cause I luv the Link Luv thing)
- SuperPost Sunday (get it, get it? Superbowl Sunday!)
- OR…and my most probable option. I keep the name as it is now, but occasionally slip in “SuperPost Sunday” inside the post. That way I get the best of both :).
- All 3 options suck! Find another one! (As if I would believe you)
Post your choices and comments!
Well, until you come up with a winner (or I do my mixing thing), I may as well share this week’s roundup of fabulous articles on everything and anything that I’ve come across that is Social Media, Blogging Tips, SEO, Internet Marketing, Traffic Building, Online Money Making Tools and more. This is a great roundup, so take the time to read as many of these A+ articles as you can.
But first on the agenda is a new feature called New Social Networking Sites that nittyGriddy Recently Joined
These are sites I recently registered for that are mainly targeted at bloggers. I’m actually borrowing this brilliant little idea of adding new sites I’ve joined from blogger friend Michele Welch over at NewBizBlogger.com. And yes, I asked her first! Thank you Michele :).
If you’re not familiar with Michele or her popular blog, then I suggest you head over there asap and check out some of the fantastic online business tips she has to share. WAIT!!! I didn’t mean right this second. I meant after you’ve read all the goodies that I have for you. THEN, you may go see Mrs. NewBizBlogger :).
New Social Networking Sites that nittyGriddy Recently Joined
I was going to tell you a little bit about each of these sites, but I would much prefer and insist for that matter, that you go and check them out for yourself. If you’re a blogger and are not a member of these 3, I strongly recommend that you become one.
And now…this week’s roundup of kick-ass posts!
