So, situations conspired to make this link dump not happen on Friday, but as I didn't have book-ish thing to bring you on Monday, I figured that I'd get this up “whenever”. Frankly, after several weeks of having a dozen links ready to go by early in the week, I was scraping to get a full load of links. There are two things at play here, what comes through on Twitter in general (which is variable, and real slim this week), plus my filtering down to the pieces that I think are worthwhile.
On Saturday I attended a meeting for the ChicagoNow bloggers, and we covered a lot of stuff. Would you be happy if I started doing “SEO driven” titles on these? It's probably because for years I wrote a lot of poetry, but I've always favored “evocative” titles rather than bean-counter text. If I was to pull from frequent search phrases, I'd have every title be “10 years job experience” with some sort of identifying coda (I hear tell sticking a colon in there, such as “phrase: phrase” is especially favored by the search algorithms!). But that's not me. Of course, if somebody was paying me, I'd write the titles however they wanted, but if I had a JOB doing this, we wouldn't be having this conversation, would we?
Anyway, it was a tough road, but here's the links I found for you this week:
As always, these have been carefully folded in with the big alphabetical list of all the links I've come up with over the past two years … which not only organizes these, but tends to let me find duplicates (which is why there's only 11 instead of 12 this week) … the .pdf e-book of which can be downloaded here: TJS-LinkList-111111.pdf
