SuperPost Sunday – Weekly Roundup #4

PaperBoy extra SuperPost Sunday   Weekly Roundup #4Hello my Lovelies,

Welcome back to SuperPost Sunday here on nittyGriddy!

Strange. I could have sworn that the weekend had just begun. Talk about blink of an eye.

Note to self: Speak in kind and persuasive tone to whoever is in charge (up there) about prolonging Saturday’s and Sunday’s. The weekend vs. weekday ratio needs to be equalized :).

First and foremost, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of you who stopped by to read and comment on My Special Bday Post, 17 Things About Me, if You’re Curious to Know. Your sweet wishes and thoughtful notes were super appreciated. And yes, I had a awesome Bday – as usual – thanks to my fabulous friends! Oh, and if you didn’t get the chance to read it, then please do. I’m gonna’ toot my own horn here and say that its pretty frickin’ good – and entertaining!

Second of all, I gotta’ tell ya – I’ve come to love writing this weekly series. The only reason I actually look forward to Sunday getting here so quickly is that I get to share some interesting and wonderfully written posts with you.

For some reason, I’m inclined to ramble less this week (again) and get straight to the goodies – after all, that’s what you’re obviously here for!


Drum roll please…

“Without further ado and blah blah,” I present you with this week’s top articles from around the blogosphere on Social Media, Blogging Tips, SEO, Internet Marketing, Traffic Building, Online Money Making Tools and more.

I think this is a kick-ass roundup of some fabulously informative and insightful posts by some rockin’ folks. And I know I say that every week, but it’s true! So, please do yourself a favor and take the time to read as many of these as you can. You won’t be sorry.


Don’t forget to share your 2 cents in the comments. They’re always appreciated and of course will be replied to.

Social Media

This is my metaphor. Just something that I thought off. Don’t kill me for it. Social media or social networking sites like twitter or facebook is like learning how to fish. It takes time and patience. I’ve received a lot of emails and direct…

Social media is plagued with intrusive advertisers spamming their message across their profiles. Fortunately for users of these networks, people can pick and choose who to follow and who to block. This means that those who are constantly…

Blogging Tips

Truth be the told, the original title for this post was going to be. “Dude! Your font is WAY too small.” But I thought that might offend some people. Every time I write something a little borderline, I can literally hear the sound of Twitter followers hitting…

One of the things that I love most about being a blogger is that I get to do a lot of different things. Sometimes I’m an artist, sometimes I’m a businessman, sometimes I’m a writer, and sometimes I’m a salesman…

Stephen King’s book On Writing is a very good read. It is targeted towards writers and wanna-be writers, but it is a very inspiring book for anyone. As bloggers are writers, this book can teach you several lessons and can inspire…

Have you ever had writer’s block? Sure you have. You know that feeling; you’re sitting at your computer/pad and you want to write something, you really, really do, but nothing comes. The frustration can last a few minutes, hours…

Maybe your blog isn’t growing fast enough. You may be getting a little frustrated with your lack of comments or retweets. Or you may be drowning in all of the social media chores that you “must do” to have an A-List blog…


If you have used Google today then you might have gotten a taste test of their newest feature, Google Instant Preview.  This feature allows users to preview the results right on the search engine results page by displaying a screenshot…

The semantic web will fundamentally change the way we process information. Ecommerce will be one of the first areas to change –and especially search engine optimization (SEO). Semantics is the process of using natural language…

Online Money Making Tools

A few bloggers tend to publish monthly income reports. However, this is not my favorite kind of information to share in a blog post – not because I am against it, but because I am still at the “spending money” stage, not making real money yet.  So…

Traffic Building

Hi, I’m Tyler. I created a blog in June, 2010 called Advanced Riskology and, by September, more than 2,000 people had decided that they liked it enough to make it a part of their daily lives. That makes me feel incredibly good and I want…

I’ve revealed my niche site backlinking strategy before, but never in this much detail. Ever since the niche site I created for the Niche Site Duel started to rapidly climb the ranks of Google, eventually landing on the number one position, people…

When leaving a comment on a high trafficked blog with dozens or maybe even hundreds of post comments, standing out is very tricky. However, it’s a very important traffic generation strategy to increase your blog traffic and should…


When I began blogging my aim was to provide quality content, relate well to visitors on my site and give honest appraisals of products I could eventually offer to my customers. I visit a lot of blogs in a day.  I love to learn from others; bring a newbie’s…

I love the communities that I’m a part of online.  Not only do I love the interactions and friendships that are developing here on the Smart Income Blog, but also in the blogging world, in general. I’ve made lasting friendships with other bloggers…

I recently got an email from someone whose comments aren’t going through on that other blog I write for. I let him know that the spam plugin Akismet was probably snagging them, and he responded to let me know that was a “piss poor” answer…

Custom tabs can be one of the greatest inventions for facebook page. It brings a page to life, allows content enhancement to impress and capture attention. Setting up a custom tab can be easy (DIY) or complicated with…

You’ve likely heard of StumbleUpon. But do you really understand how to use its full power? StumbleUpon is a social bookmarking and rating site where people can “Stumble” their favorite web pages, write reviews and share their…

Many of you regularly read Men with Pens (as I do) because of the great information and tips about writing and creating stuff that sells. So what, pray tell, is a marriage and relationship guy doing here…

This was my mindset before Danny Brown said, “Just try it.” I used to see blogs as something I enjoyed reading, but writing one wasn’t worth the time. I thought it was something that I couldn’t commit to and wouldn’t have time…

There are times in life when you may want to connect with somebody more “famous” than you. I mean famous relatively speaking. It could be a blogger, business person, government official, or even maybe just the hot girl/guy you…

    Hey Ingrid,

    Really like your weekly roundups. You are always presenting some top-notch content there. It’s not much different this time. Judging by the titles, it seems like that I have checked out a big portion of the articles already (and even commented on some) and yes – they are great! Found some awesome additions to the list of blogs I’m reading as well. Thanks for sharing! :)

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Very nice to see you here again! As usual – thank you for your kind and supportive words.

      I’m glad you were able to find new additions to the current blogs that you read. It means I’ve done my job and accomplished my goal :).

      Hi Kevin,

      You’re most welcome! Really liked the honesty in your post. Needless to say, you had me at the title lol ;).

      I couldn’t agree more with all that you said in there.


  • Ana | Traffic Generation Cafe

    Definitely a great collection, Ingrid. I’ve been to most of these blogs, but there are a few new names for me as well.

    I am looking forward to checking out Kristi’s StumbleUpon guide; I always wanted to learn how to use it effectively.

    Goes without saying, I appreciate being included in your list!


    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Ana,Always good to see you here. Thanks for taking the time to stop by :).I’m glad you like the collection – I think it’s a pretty great roundup as well. Kristi’s StumbleUpon guide is as thorough as they come and a big help indeed – at least for me it was.And you’re most welcome. You’ve got great posts and a super blog. It should go without saying on my part that you may come to tire of seeing your posts included in this roundup lol. But I sure hope that you don’t ;).Thanks again for your comment.Have a great week.Cheers

    Another great wrap, causing me to read a few more articles before I write a few posts for my business blog this week. Maybe I’ll check out Site Sketch it’s been a while, see what Nick’s got going on over there.

    • Ingrid Abboud

      HI John,
      Always nice to read you here :). Thanks for stopping by. I hope you find some inspiration with a few of these for your upcoming business posts!

      Nicholas has got some great stuff on his blog – definitely head over there and if you have time – make sure to check the rest as well :).

      Glad you liked the wrap!
      Enjoy your Sunday.

  • Ileane

    Hey Ingrid, you pulled together some top notch content here! I’m still plugging away at Kristie’s StumbleUpon post and I’m determined to finish it this weekend. Tristan’s hat post was simply marvelous! And Patricia is the first newbie I’ve met in awhile who blogs like a pro :)
    Thanks Ingrid and enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hi Ileane,
      Thanks a lot for stopping by to share your thoughts – much appreciated :).
      I’m glad you’re finding this list useful. They really are great reads – all of them!

      Kristin’s post was super helpful actually. Yes, a bit long (which I personally I like) but very useful especially if you’re following along with StumbleUpon. She just has great posts in general. I really enjoy reading her work.

      As for Tristan – he really rocked it with that infographic. I loved it and every hat is a perfect fit for many of us. I’ve also become an avid reader of his blog – in the short time that it’s been up.

      Patricia, on the other hand, I used to come across pretty much everywhere through her comments. But it wasn’t until her first guest post that we connected. And I’m happy that we did. She really is a great writer and a very active community member with a lot to share. I look forward to seeing a lot more of her work.

      As for you – well needless to say that you’ve got one heck of a site Mrs. Basic Blog Tips :). Always tons of interesting posts to share and learn from. I look forward to keep reading more by you and your fantastic guest authors. Good stuff!

      Happy Sunday.

  • TristanH

    Woooo! Thanks for mentioning my hats infographic! And thanks for ruining my productivity for the last couple days with lots of supplemental reading!

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Tristan,

      I just love your enthusiastic comments hehe. I’m always laughing afterwards. Cause it’s kind of how I feel when I read somebody else’s weekly roundup.

      I really thought your infographic rocked – spot on. Nicely done.
      I’ll be looking forward to seeing more of them!

      Always a pleasure seeing you here.

      Happy Sunday to you :).
