Link Karma IV: Link Night at the Apollo

It’s been way too long since the last installment of link karma, and I’m feeling a bit out of balance. So let’s take a look at what a few Copyblogger readers have been up to with their blogs.

And don’t forget to guess the movie sequel reference in the post title (this one is a bit tougher than Link Karma two and three, but the answer is there in plain sight).

First up, Nick Wilson of Performancing has a new podcast, and his second installment answered my question as to whether he or Aaron Wall coined the term link bait. You’ll just have to listen to find out the answer.

Another useful podcast is the Great Big Small Business Show. Check out this episode on organization, a topic I can never get enough of (or master).

The following links need no description from me… because they all have great headlines that either make clear the promise or draw you in with curiosity. And although I hope I provided inspiration, I otherwise had nothing to do with writing any of these post titles that all seem to have done very well. Good work!

And finally, those eagle-eyes who are wondering about the tweaks to the Copyblogger template done several weeks back are correct… the entire Copyblogger code was overhauled and replaced with a modified Cutline theme from Chris Pearson (natch). Pick yourself up a copy and modify away, because Chris has done a great job of supporting the theme with tons of documentation.

That’s it for this Thanksgiving week edition of Link Karma. Be the first in the comments to guess the movie sequel reference in my post title, and you’ll automatically win the right to take Thursday and Friday of this week off.*

  1. Hey Brian – First, thanks for the links. And second, it the sequel reference Apollo Creed dying in Rocky IV?

  2. Man… still too easy!

    Yep, Rocky IV, where Apollo Creed bit the dust at the hands of Drago.

    Enjoy your three day work week. :)

  3. Good post as always.

    (2 links to successfromthenest in one Copyblogger post! I’d say that equates to a modicum of success, eh Tony?)

    Regards

  4. Just a movie buff, with a head full of random knowledge.

    Oh, and BTW – you were inspiration for one of the headlines, Brian. I tweaked the “3 Valuable Lessons…” title based on some of your tips.

    No doubt, Buck. It’s very cool when someone whose writing you enjoy and respect finds value in something you’ve written. I definitely appreciate it.

  5. Thanks for another great post of tips and ideas! I really like copyblogger. =)

  6. Being a *HUGE* fan of Chris Pearson and Cutline, hooray. Pretty much the entire Grasshopper New Media platform is slowly morphing into Cutline-ville.

    But thanks also for link love from the greatest superhero in the lands of building buzz.

    I’ve been a fan for .. well sheesh… what, since 2006 at least. : )

  7. I bloody hate that movie. I can’t tell you how many times growing up people referred to me as “Ivan” is some pathetic fake russian accent.

  8. Good post. I don’t think it’s a reference to a Rocky film, though. Apollo is a famous nightclub, a couple of mivies have the name in their title, such as “A Night at the Apollo” (Tony Bennet, Jacko, Diana Ross 2002) or “Amateur Night at the Apollo”. I’m taking Th-Fri off.

  9. That was the red herring reference Treq.

    But good for you for naming it specifically… enjoy your days off. :)

  10. As someone who’s just starting out on the whole blog-train (at least at work, I’ve had a personal blog for a while), this list is *extremely* useful.

    Thanks much for posting it!
