Weekly Roundup 2 – Interesting Articles Around the Blogosphere

Monday, July 7th, 2008 | Weekly Roundup Links with 8 Comments

I was going to post this on Saturday (well, every Saturday) but I was kind of busy for the 4th of July weekend. But since I got some positive responses about my last Weekly Roundup , I figured I’d continue to do this to give some link love to people who write interesting articles. So, here’s the Monday Weekly Roundup!

And if you know of any other interesting articles, let me know and I’ll check it out and you might see it on the next Weekly Round!

This one isn’t for me but it’s always an interesting article if it’s written by Tina Su. It’s 20 Ways to Attack Shyness .

    Thanks alot – I actually had an interesting read. ‘Comment pussy’ is actually quite funny. I am in a dilema on one of my blogs, actually. I have two or three comments like that (I just started out a month and a half ago) and I’m hesitant to take them off because one spammy comment is better then no comment, you know what I mean?

    I guess once my readership starts increasing, I can be more picky :) Thanks for the list!

    Jovana – I would get rid of the spammy comments from the beginning because you don’t want to help those spammers with backlinks from your site because it may actually hurt your website creditials as well.

    Just my opinion… I always take off spam comments even if they “sound” legit, more than likely it’s not. You could always Google the spam comment and you’ll see an entire list of the same spam comments on other blogs.

    Hey Jay ~ Thanks for adding me to your roundup post ;) I got a pretty funny comment today on that post … it was a legitimate post comment … but the blog they were promoting is in the porn industry and he used “relevant” anchor text … putting me in a position to decide whether or not to approve it. *sigh*

    Jovana ~ I would personally have to agree with Jay on the “no comments” is better than supporting the spammers. Traffic will come in time and you’ll be glad you waited. *hugs* Suzanne

    Jim ~ I know it’s a funny title … but everytime I get one of those “time waster” comments that’s all I think … “PUSSY” don’t post your crap on my blog! Work for the links and the traffic like the rest of us … by truly caring about others. ;) Most likely you’ll think of that too every time you get one. LOL

    I’m definitely NOT a comment pussy. Haha! @ The list of celebrities real names – There’s a site that has a TON of info. Nonetheless, good linkbait!
