Bring IT! I Brought IT with a Guide for Blog Post Schedules!

Hello My Lovelies,

Contrary to my usual Wednesday Bring IT! series – I’ll be the only one Bringin’ the goods today :D!

This may be one of the shortest blog post you’ve seen from me, so don’t gasp! And don’t be snarky either ;). It may be short but there’s a lot of sweat and happy tears behind it.

As some of you already know, I put out a call to the blogosphere 2 weeks ago for people to drop by and let me know when they publish their blog posts along with a few other things I had asked for.

264 comments later…plus slightly swollen fingers and a bit of blurred vision…

I’m pleased to present you with The Practical Guide to Blog Posting Schedules.

Practical Guide to Blog Posting Schedules Bring IT! I Brought IT with a Guide for Blog Post Schedules!

Inside, is a nice and neat table of 82 blogs (the one’s whose authors came over and commented) along with their direct links, authors, taglines and publishing days. I tried to keep it as basic and simple as possible so as to make it easy to follow. I hope you find it useful. And if you don’t, you can always keep it as a souvenir lol.

But before you download it, please make sure to thank my good friend and partner in crime Brankica from Live Your Love, for her very cool design and PDF skills. She’s the little techie genius who turned my shabby looking Excel sheet into this pretty PDF file I got for you here.

Oh, and Bran also spoon fed me the instructions to install that nifty little “Share to Get” button you see below.

I always say 2 heads are better than one, and in all honesty, I couldn’t have worked with a better head on this project.

You see folks, that’s the beauty of using Social Media the way it was intended. You make friends along the way, who sooner or later come to the rescue when you need them or turn into great business partners and collaborators.

To grab yourself a copy of this FREE guide, all you have to do is share it on Twitter or Facebook. Yup, that’s the cheap price you gotta’ pay. But if you ask me, it’s kinda worth it.

Why Should You Get this Guide?

  • Cause Brankica and I worked hard to make it
  • Cause your blog hopping life is about to get much easier
  • Cause everyone’s doing it; it’s cool
  • Cause you can discover new blogs
  • Cause you can connect with some new bloggers
  • Cause you no longer need to remember when some of your favorite bloggers publish their new posts
  • Cause it looks pretty and it’s simple to refer to
  • Cause you like me or Brankica or both of us
  • Cause…


And don’t forget to share your pennies in the comments.

    Looks like I’m late to this party, but appreciate it none the less.
    I’m just getting into the blogging thing – really an afterthought and somewhere else to write.
    Anyway, thanks. Love the enthusiasm of your space here.

    Hi Ingrid,

    You and Brankica (@LiveUrLove) did a wonderful job pulling this guide together. You know, a RED X usually means STOP or Warning! I feel honored to have one next to my blog’s name. Why? Because there are only a few red x’s, so mine’s stands out. (Never mind the fact that I publish infrequently!) 😀

    That’s a neat little app you used for downloading and further spreading the word about The Guide. Hat’s off, and thanks for taking the time. (Yeah, you Brought IT!)

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Vernessa,
      Thanks so much for you words of support here. Much appreciated :).And yes – it seems the red X’s do stand out quite a bit hahaha. Then again – I don’t have a set posting schedule either ;).As for the app – there’s a direct link to it which will show you how to use it and install it – it’s by Glen Allsopp from Viperchill. It’s actually pretty great although I would only use it for things such as this.Hope you enjoy the guide and that it comes in handy for you.Thanks for Bringing IT yourself ;)!Have a great week.Cheers

    Thanks for this Ingrid! Totally gonna use it for both my personal blog and my boss’ blog :)

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Ferris ,

      I’m glad you found a way to put it to good use :). It was really a pleasure to do this!
      Thanks for the support.


  • Christina Crowe

    This is awesome, Ingrid and Brankica! I just downloaded my copy. Thanks for taking the time to do this; I can only imagine how long it took to put this together. And thanks for including me in the copy – I really appreciate it! :)

    Like a few others had mentioned, I love how you get right to the source. I was also surprised with how detailed you got; I mean, I was expecting maybe a blog name, url, and blog posting schedule – but I wasn’t expecting all this! It’s really awesome what you did here. Good work to the both of you! :)


    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Christina,

      Thanks so much for all the kind words and encouragement on this. I really appreciate it and I know Brankica does as well.

      You’re right in that we really did work our butts off to try and create something good and easy to follow – but the time was well worth it! I hope you’ll find it useful in some way.

      Sorry for the late reply – for some reason – all my notification emails for this blog have been going to my junk folder for the last week or so and I just realized – so I’m spending the days doing my rounds and making sure I didn’t miss anyone for as it is some folks like you have waited a while for a response and that bothers me :(.

      Anyhow – thanks again for all you that you said here and for all that you do over at Cash Campfire. You’re really rocking it girl and its a pleasure to watch you grow!

      Have a great Thursday.

    every one these days is talking about blogosphere, btw I’m going to try the guide let see.

    thanks for your work.

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hope it comes in handy for you.
      Thanks for your comment.


  • Thomas

    Great work girls and thank you for including my blog :-)
    Great to see my blog name on a list like this. Make me kind of proud of my work. I think this post requires a little RT.

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Thomas,

      It was a pleasure to have you in there and I hope it brings some new folks your way as well as helps you discover a few new blogs out there.

      Thanks for the RT :). I’m happy to see it being shared and I’m actually thrilled that it’s been Sutmbled almost 2,000 times already in 24 hours. So that’s pretty cool :).

      Enjoy the long weekend and Happy Easter to ya if you celebrate.


      • Thomas

        2000 :-O that is pretty wild. Great that all your hard work paid off. I have for sure found a couple of new interesting blogs on the list.

  • Keith Davis

    Hi Ingrid
    Spotted youir comment on Danny Brown’s post and it prompted me to pay you a visit.

    Sounds as though you and Brankica have been very busy putting this guide together.
    Appreciate that.

    “264 comments later…plus slightly swollen fingers and a bit of blurred vision…”
    I can see how that would happen. LOL

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Keith,

      Great to see you here :). How have you been?
      We definitely put some hard work into it but is well worth it and more.

      As for that little quote of mine – it’s actually kinda true haha.

      Glad you came to visit today – we missed ya over here. Hope all is well on your end.
      Happy Easter to ya


      • Keith Davis

        I’m good Ingrid and you seem in great spirits.

        Happy Easter to you and hope you enjoy your chocolate eggs.

        Just remember… all things in moderation.
        Applies to chocolate eggs and answering comments. LOL

        • Ingrid Abboud

          Will do Keith and thank you :).

  • Bill Dorman

    Yay, I was able to open it this time.

    I’m going to have to change my name from the invisible blogger to the discount blogger. The reason I don’t have all the ‘cool’ stuff, downloads, or toys is because you typically have to pay for it. With a down economy, just thru getting two kids out of college and a wife that thinks all this is frivolous, you don’t see Billy boy paying for much. And to top it off, I’m doing most of this on my office computer…..yikes, huh.

    Ms Gini did say in her webinar a must-have was and Backup Buddy so I will put that on my ‘to-do’ list and I need to get more efficient w/ HootSuite………..yes, I have been doing everything on twitter.

    I’m surprised you guys have kept me around as hard as I make it for you pros. I guess it’s a good thing you love me too, huh? Like my buddies say in golf; hit one, drag Billy; hit one, drag Billy……….

    Ok, off to an appt w/ my payin’ gig. I hope you have a great weekend planned.

    I pledge to clean up my act……….:)

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Bill,

      Glad you were able to open the guide :). Actually – there is a ton of stuff that you can get for free when it comes to blogging. Everything you see on this site so far is for the most part free – except my self-hosted domain of course. There are some great host servers you can go with that always have some good deals especially during the holidays. I know a lot of people use HostGator – I use But there are quite a few so when you decide you’d like to switch – if you do – definitely check those 2 out along with some others.

      As for keeping you around – well, we’re hoping to keep you as long as we can my dear Bill :). And you don’t make it hard for anyone for that matter – quite the contrary – always a pleasure :).

      Wishing you a great long weekend with your family. Happy Easter to ya (if you celebrate).


      • Bill Dorman

        I see you being politically correct in the twitter universe……………:). Yes, I celebrate FYI…….

        See you soon.
        Bad Billy

        • Ingrid Abboud

          I keep it safe hahaha.
          Happy Easter to you and your family Bill :)

  • Fran Aslam

    Congrats for a job well done. I am glad that you had Brankica U, with you, otherwise you would have taken much longer. Now are you going to do more similar editions of new people commenting and reading your post? This will enhance your effort even more. Time is important and every year comes with new challenges. Think about it You two are achiever together. Keep up with your success.

    Fran A

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hi Fran,

      Thanks for your comment. Yes, Brankica is a great partner to have – and we collaborated on this project quite nicely and are happy with the outcome. Not sure if there will a second version straight away (probably at some point later on) – but maybe in the near future. Rounding up the information in the comments took me quite some time but it was fun to do and discover new folks along the way.

      Hope you enjoy the guide.
      Happy long weekend.


  • Adam Toporek

    What a generous act on the part of both you and Brankica! You really went the extra mile for your NG community. I am one of the newer participants around these parts, but your personal response to my email has made me a loyalist already. I think if they ever write a book about online networking, you are going to get your own chapter!

    Thank you again. I’ve already discovered a few new blogs from the guide. :)

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Adam,

      It’s great to have you as a part of this community and thank you for your thoughtful words. I’m flattered by what you said here. It’s comments like your here which act as great motivators and make this journey the incredible one that it is :).

      Brankica is a great friend and partner to have and I’m hoping you find this little guide useful in some way. Good to know you’ve discovered some new blogs – as I have to :).

      Enjoy the long weekend. Looking forward to see you around these parts again soon.


  • WebMechanix

    INGRID! Every time I visit your blog, I end up adding at least one new RSS feed to my reader… this time I had to add 3!!! – Right up my ally. – I love the headlines on this blog! @Gini Dietric – keep up the good work. – Brankica is cool & my coworker is a big affiliate marketer.

    What can I say, thank you for putting your time and effort into this :)

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Arsham,

      Well I’m thrilled to hear that!!! :))

      Gini is actually a good friend and so is Brankica – both are exceptional at what they do!
      Brankica is actually my partner in this guide and is responsible for the design and techie side of it.

      Gini’s blog – Spin Sucks – is by far one of my favs – not simply because she’s a friend but because she’s top-notch in every way.

      Sathish Kumar over at Techiemania is just rockin’ it!!!

      Glad you found those three – there’s a lot more that I regularly read and am friends with that are necessarily listed in the guide – since as you know – I kept it fair and only included those folks who commented in time on that particular post. But definitely some great blogs in there – some that are known – others to be discovered.

      I would also highly recommend my dear friend and brilliant mind – Danny Brown over at as well as Marcus Sheridan from (another close friend and awesome blogger).

      These folks here (all of them) are A-listers to me. Of course – there’s several more that I greatly admire that we can all learn a lot from.

      Enjoy and thanks again for the kind words :).

      • WebMechanix

        Holy, AWESOME. Danny Brown = the man. I hop over to his blog, first post I read is about Employee ROI where he mentions Gary Vaynerchuk (who I met and admired semi-recently)…

        Next post I read is about increasing Google traffic where Danny talks about keyword research (something near and dear to my heart) and has a valuable video giving real good advice on how he would change a blog post to get more Google traffic.

        I sent my partner to as he is more of the “sales guy” in our organization… but I saw he was using Thesis.

        Just wanted to drop you a thanks for plugging those in your reply.

        Oh and I saw Brankica’s name/blog on the cover of the PDF — I think it was the first link I clicked off there haha :)

        Looking forward to tomorrow’s roundup – have a great day.

  • AllieRambles


    I love lists and this is the ultimate list. I feel honored to be in it–> forever!

    Thanks to Ingrid and Brankica!

    What’s funny is, the week you put it out was the week I am off schedule by one day. But that’s fine. I’ll resume next week with my Tuesday/Thursday posts.

    You’re awesome!


    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Allie,

      Glad to have you in there as well :).
      Hope you find it useful – or at least are able to discover some new blogs from it.

      Good luck resuming :).

      Thanks for the great support.

  • Howie at Sky Pulse Media

    Yay! So excited. Going to print it out and hand it to every single NY State Assembly person because they can use good management and media advice! and of course will craft into a very nice coffee table book.

    Thank you Griddy and Brankica!

    • Howie at Sky Pulse Media

      I just got punished for using firefox and no scripts add on. I never allow java from unknown sources and have to unblock networks and you have a lot of connections here. Took me awhile to figure out which was the one to tweet and win!

      • Ingrid Abboud

        Oooops – sooowwyyy 😉

      Why thank *you* Chief Alien.

  • Lori Gosselin

    Thanks for this Griddy! Very timely for me too as I’m on the lookout for more great blogs to follow!

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hope you discover some new ones in here Lori. I kept it fair and only included the blogs of those folks who came and left a comment on the original post and call. So – there’s a lot of new ones you may not know and others you might recognize ;).


  • Anonymous

    You know, the funny thing is Ingrid, I don’t keep to a blog schedule anymore.

    I used to, in fact until recently I used to be pretty caught up about it. If I didn’t post on a certain day, I’d get frustrated and annoyed with myself! I even did a blog post “What I’ve Learned About Blogging Over The Past Week”, where I outlined my new blogging schedule with pride, including when I’d leave blog comments, write guest posts, and write for UTD.

    But things have changed.

    If you were to ask me “What’s your blogging schedule” now, I’d put a big red X on the side, and in the notes I’d leave, “Whenever I feel like it”. I now blog for the joy of it, and I have no schedule when it comes to the blogging world. If I wanna leave a comment, I do so. If I get the urge to write a guest post, I do so. If I want to wait a week or a day before my next post, I’ll do so.

    I’m completely flexible now, and I’m happy with it. It means I follow my passion a lot more, and do the things I actually feel like doing each and every day.

    The thing is, the only schedule that I had was one that I put on myself, no-one else told me what to do. Once I realised this, I realised that I can really do whatever the hell I want to do, without fear of being criticised by anyone.

    Why? Because it’s my blog and I’ll blog when I wanna blog :-)

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hi Stuart,

      Thanks so much for that exceptional comment and for being such a value to this community. I really appreciate you and the work that you do.

      Much like you – I don’t have a set posting schedule. The only 2 things that are set are this Bring IT! series on Wednesday’s and my SuperPost roundups on Sundays – anything in between, I write when I feel like it – or when I have something to share.

      I actually wrote a little post about this exact topic – which if you have time for one day – I’d love for you to read. I think you will enjoy it. It’s called, “Crap, I have Nothing to Post”

      When I first started blogging – I was told by people who didn’t even know what a blog was that I was suppose to post everyday and multiple times a day at that. So of course I listened and typed till my fingers fell off. I thought quantity was king even though deep down I knew that content was in fact what should reign. I know better now.

      “Because it’s my blog and I’ll blog when I wanna blog” – Exactly how I feel too ;)! Well said indeed!!!

      Thanks again for that super comment.
      Have a great day.

        • Ingrid Abboud

          Awwwwww thank you :))))!
          I try! But yes – sleep is in order! hehe

          Thanks Arsham

  • GraphicDesignMelbourne

    Hi, Ingrid.

    Thanks for the feature in your posting schedule guide and thank you for being such generous person that you are. This is no mean feat what you have done. Collating all these 82 blogs and coming up with a posting schedule guide for them. Not only will this make it easier for us to follow our favourite blogs, it will also introduce to so much more amazing blogs there are online. What you have done here, will return to you a thousandfold.

    A big thanks also to Brankica for being the techie genius that she is and for helping you out. You make a great team. 😉

    P.S. I had to share this twice because I was unable to save the guide the first time (Mozilla crashed). Just couldn’t let it go without saving it.

    – Wes –

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Wes,

      Thanks so much for all your support and your kind words my friend. We definitely put a lot into this although it may look easy and simple. I just hope – like you said – that it will help people to better follow some of their favorite blogs if not at least allow us to discover some new ones. After all – that’s one of the best parts of blogging – making new friends :).

      Brankica is definitely the best partner ever! She was so enthusiastic about this idea and I couldn’t have done it without her. Plus – being the little techie nerd that she is – was a huge plus hehe.

      Have a great day.

  • Lye Kuek Hin

    Hi Ingrid and Brankica,

    I can’t tell how appreciative i am for the hard work compiling different schedule of 82 blogs. That’s simply awesome. Thanks for going all out to do all the hard work for us. You gals really rock. Dear Brankica, i will know who to turn for if i require help on my geek stuff :)



    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Lye,

      Thanks a lot for the kind words. I hope this list helps you discover a few more blogs and that it comes in handy in some way.

      As for Bran – she’s definitely the right partner and a very COOL geek hehehe.

  • Jk Allen

    What a great idea this was Griddy. And to be featured in it…little ol’ me – I’m ecstatic!

    You’re a special kind of person. Giving back the way you have is a quality that I really look up to. Thank you for being a great example of “how it’s done!”

    Also, thank you for opening my eyes and widening my horizon to all the great blogs that I was clueless on. You being a lady of high quality, I can only imagine that each destination within the guide is worth following.

    Thank you so much!


    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey JK,

      You are much too kind my friend. Thanks so much for what you said here. You’ve been such a wonderful support and community member and it’s truly a pleasure to have connected with you.

      In all honesty – many of these blogs are new to me and I only included those blogs of folks who stopped by to comment on that particular post. I didn’t hand pick them but there are definitely many in there worth checking out – I discovered many new ones as well. I hope the guide comes in handy for you.

      Have a great day.

  • Jmbonthous

    HI I clicked on “Share to Get” Now how to get this report? How/where do I download it?

    • Ingrid Abboud

      When you click on that button – after you tweet it – it will give you a link to where the guide is. It’s pretty simple – just click on share to get and follow it.


  • Kristi Hines

    Nice job with this! I’m working on a set schedule myself – just testing which days do the best. :)

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hi Kristi,

      Very kind of you to drop by :). I appreciate it.
      Best of luck on finding the days that best work for you. I personally publish 2 series (Wed and Sun) and then I publish another post sometime in between – whenever the mood strikes, or when I have something to say :).

      Have a great week.

    • Brankica U

      I have to add to this one :) I had a set schedule, and just now changed it to do some testing. Guess this never ends, lol, always more work to do

      • Ingrid Abboud

        Yes, but it’s FUN work! 😉

  • Anonymous

    Brilliant, truly and unmistakably brilliant.
    I cannot thank you enough for what you and Brankica have done here.
    You give a face to the term social sharing (the good kind – not the ‘oh shit I hope there’ a cream for that’ kind) and I hereby officially dub thee

    “The Rising Star of Social Media”
    (Look out Jerusalem – I see a new star on the horizon, but this star is being followed by more than just three wise men – let me tell you)

    😉 Keep on doing whatever it is that you are doing – cause its working, and I LIKE IT. (literally)

    • Ingrid Abboud

      LOL and a big phat thank you my dear friend!

      I kinda felt like I had to kneel so you could pass the sword across each of my shoulders as you dubbed me with the knightly name ahaha.

      I really hope this guide that Bran and I worked pretty hard on comes in handy for you somehow. I discovered quite a few blogs because of it.

      I have every intention of continuing to do what I have been – well at least until my community will allow allow me to ;).

      Have a great day Aussie.
      Talk to you later.

      Thanks again for putting that big smile of my face today :).

  • Dino Dogan

    Where is my head. You TOLD me to put my schedule in the comments…but I got dragged elsewhere and now Im kicking myself. Oh well.

    I think this is an awesome idea. You guys are freaking geniuses

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Do you realize you just made me gasp cause I thought you meant we forgot to include you in here?!
      And then of course I realized it was your early Alzheimer’s that kicked in and I cant totally feel for you cause I have it too – and much too often these days lol!!

      Thanks so much Dino – really appreciate your support my friend.
      Next time round – I will cheat and include you myself if I have to hahaha.

      Thanks so much for your supportive words. I really hope it comes in handy for you and that you’re able to discover a few new blogs out there.

      It was a pleasure to do – and I hope the next one will be even bigger.

      Hola Patricia,

      Brankica does rock indeed :). It was such a pleasure collaborating with her on this.

      Hope you find this guide useful.
      Thanks for the kind words :).

      Have a great week.

      • Brankica U

        You two know how much I HEART you, right :)

        • Ingrid Abboud

          You know I heart you too! :)

    Ok, I’m stoppin in early on this one Ms. Griddy because this was one of the most impressive acts of service and community to all the good people of the blogosphere that I’ve ever seen….and I’ve seen a lot. And although you haven’t talked about it for people to truly understand, the amount of time you invested in this was incredible….At least 40 hours or more between all the comments, compilations, and other stuff. Heck, I’m probably grossly low with that number now that I think about it.

    I just want you to know you’re appreciated and a special person Ingrid. And all of us here are honored to be a part of your community.

    Oh, and thanks also to Sharpy. That gal is awesome. Plus she’s going to teach me to shoot a gun when I make it down south 😉


    • Brankica U

      Fire starter!!!

        I’m next master! hehehe

      Mufasa you are much too kind with what you said here. And I certainly know that you meant every word you said here. It’s people like you who make me feel appreciated and that’s why I’m lucky to know you and call you a good friend.

      You’re right – Bran and I did put a lot of work into this – and I’m really pleased with the outcome. I’m hoping the second version (if we ever do one) will be even better and bigger.

      I’ll make sure to stay a couple hundred miles clear of you when you do decide to learn how to shoot hahaha. But if it’s Bran who’s gonna be your teacher, then I’m sure you’ll be bulls-eying in no time! Let me know when you’re all done with target practice hahaha.

      Have a great day M.
      Always a breath of fresh air when you come by here.

      Ciao t…d

    • Jason Hughes

      Just want to ditto what my boy said here. This is amazing guys, girls???…you know what I mean!

    • Bill Dorman

      FYI – Marcus thinks he has an insurmountable lead w/ 36 comments to your posts this month; ha, I’m going to put 70 on this one alone……………and I won’t even make Griddy respond. I just want to get to the top spot so I can wear the lion’s head for awhile…………….just sayin’…………

  • James D. Burrell II

    Holy unbelievable list Batman. Quick, to the Batcave to relish in the bounty of worthy blogs to read. For starters, even though you were including anyone who took the time to respond here on the list, I feel honored to be in the company of such wonderful people. So, a sincere thank you to you and Ms. Sharp Shooter. Also, please note, that on 11:22AM ET, Wednesday, April 20, 2011, James D. Burrell II was once again the first commenter on your blog. I feel like the world has returned to normalcy.

    Hope you’re having a great week, and I look forward to talking to you soon.

    As always, your amigo,


    • James D. Burrell II

      I stand corrected. Paul’s fingers are clearly more adroit than mine at pounding out comments. Well played, sir, well played.

      • Ingrid Abboud


        Yup – Paul did beat you to it. But hey, second place isn’t too shabby either! 😉

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Well hello Robin ;). What a pleasure it is to see you back here! We kinda missed ya and that trophy case isn’t the same without you. I’m sure Brankica is starting to worry now that you’re back with a vengeance haha.

      I really hope this little guide comes in handy for you somehow or at least enables you to discover a few new blogs that you’ll like.

      Talk to you very soon Jimbo.

  • Paul Flanigan

    Griddy –

    This is fantastic. I have two comments:

    1. I love that you don’t waste my time in the document. You show the schedule. I know you could have added your own .02 in there, and often we see that. But I love that it’s the core information.

    2. Even though I’m in it, I would have paid for this. Maybe a dollar? Maybe two bucks? I know that sounds like nothing, but I’m guessing this will be downloaded at least 50 to 100 times? Considering how easy it is for many of us to waste a dollar on a silly iPhone bird game, this is much more value. I know there is a social media philosophy about sharing, but I also see my payment to you has payment for your work as much as for the info. Something to consider next time.

    Great stuff. Seriously.

    • Ingrid Abboud

      Hey Paul,

      Thanks so much for that amazing comment.
      As for the guide – I really wanted it to be just that – a guide! No extra non-sense. I wanted people to be able do download and print it if they want to. I was set on keeping it simply and easy to refer to with just the main info.

      As for having charged for it. sure – I could have maybe charged a buck but since this is the first one I launch (although the 2nd one I work on – first one still unpublished) I really wanted to give something back to my amazing community and the blogosphere in general. I came up with the idea to do this guide at the wee hours of the night 2 weeks ago and just thought it should be free and accessible to all those that want it. It could have been much larger – wherein I could have included all the blogs I know or read – but I wanted to reward those folks who came by and took the time to comment – so I only included them in there.

      But I will most definitely take you up on that idea next time. As long as I think it’s a fair price – whatever it may be.

      I’m glad you find this useful – I really hope that others will too.
      Have a great week.


      • Paul Flanigan

        Sharing always has way more clout than charging, but I have seen too often where amazing work goes unrecognized because people sometimes think sharing is a given rather than a privilege. (I have a post coming soon about the cost of my advice and how I have begun to dial back what I share, instead placing value on it).

        Another way to look at this dynamic is: You share a TON of stuff on your blog. This was extra credit, for both you and your readers, one I’m happy to be a part of.

        But, in the meantime, I would be shocked if anyone did not find value in this. One of the immediate things it has helped me do is categorize my RSS feeds a little better.

        Again, great stuff, and you’re amazing.

        • Ingrid Abboud

          You’re quite right about that Paul. And I like how you put it too. I have much to often shared work with my clients lol. It’s that creep project thing where I end up working for free for them :(. I would love to read your post – it’s definitely a topic that interests me – so please do let me know when you publish it.

          I can’t thank you enough for all your positive feedback. I unfortunately just found a couple mistakes -I nearly had a heart attack :( – but the are being fixed as we speak.

          Great point about organizing your RSS :). I really hope people find this as useful as you do. I will have to do a second version of it again at some point – an even bigger one :).

          I truly appreciate your support. You rock!
