7 Useful Links for Weekend Reading

Twitter

It’s no secret that much of the link-sharing that goes on these days happens on Twitter instead of blogs, so here are some of the links I shared over there this week. I’m not sure how regular a feature this will be, however, so follow Copyblogger on Twitter for all the real-time linky goodness.

  1. Thanks for the links, Brian! Surely will wait for the report. Cheers!

  2. I’m glad you found my post useful to your readers! Thanks for linking and have a great weekend, Brian. :)

  3. Love the articles you provided, especially Maki’s post. I remember when there wasn’t a search engine in sight…instead, one would use Netnews or Usenet to find the resources one needed. Quite the wild wild west it was, back then…

  4. I’m a fan of “right-sized” content.

    Tee up the questions, then nail them. When are you done? When you’ve answered the questions … and the value of your content is the value of the problem solved.

    I underestimated the value of headlines. Without the bait, the hook, line and sinker don’t matter.

  5. Those are some cool links. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Great selection of “back to basics” resources here Brian. Now just have to find time to go through them all and make something out of it…

    …Nick’s POWER UP gets first reading. Landing pages look out!

  7. I Agree with Barbara

    Maki’s post is really informative and useful.

  8. I really appreciate the links you put on twitter. I have read 4 of the 7 as a link from your twitter. Links are one of the main reasons I use twitter.

  9. I retwitted this page cause I felt it’s better than weekend reading. Wish I had read this post months ago. Would have saved me a ton of hard work. Thanks Brian.

  10. Thanks for sharing, really great articles links to find more ideals and information… thanks.. man !

  11. Thanks for these useful links. As I am building my blog now … so how to setup a blog for long run is very handy for me. Cheers.

  12. Love the articles you provided, especially Maki’s post. I remember when there wasn’t a search engine in sight…instead, one would use Netnews or Usenet to find the resources one needed. Quite the wild wild west it was, back then…
