Fabulous Goodies For My Blogging Friends

by Adrienne Smith on October 3, 2011

Fabulous Goodies For My Blogging FriendsAs I make my way through the blogosphere, I continue to be amazed at the wealth of information that I am introduced to.  I know you’ve heard me numerous times saying that you can learn so much from just reading other people’s blogs.  As with me, they share what they have learned and some of it is just priceless.  I can’t believe that a lot of these bloggers give there tips away for free.

What I thought I would do in this post is share some of the information that I have come across that I believe is priceless.  If you are not regular visitors to some of these blogs then you should be.  Hopefully you already are but just in case I’ll list the ones I think are worth paying extra special attention to.

Some Really Cool Graphics

I know some of you visit Mouh over at Effortless Bookwriting Blog.  Did you see the post where he gave away all of the graphics that he’s created?  Ah, you missed that one.  Well, be sure and stop by his post, Here are All the Graphics I Offer For Free! and download them while you can.  He has really created some cool ones I must admit.

Staying On Top Of Things

I love visiting Brankica over at Online Income Star where she is always sharing such awesome tips.  Recently I read her post How To Stay Up To Date With Every Piece Of Info In Your Industry and was just amazed.  Now I know about subscribing to RSS feeds but I didn’t realize that I should be doing the same thing for YouTube videos, Flickr photos, forum tracking and just good old blog searches.  She really shared some great tips on how to do just that.

Six Figure Blogger Blueprint

I was recently introduced to David Risley of DavidRisley.com by Brankica.  She mentioned in another post she wrote of some people we should be following and David was one of them.  I decided to take her advice and sign up for his newsletter.  What he entices you with is his free eBook, the Six Figure Blogger Blueprint.

I was extremely impressed with the wealth of information he shares in this one free report.  He shares how he became a six figure blogger and exactly what he did.  Trust me, he should be charging for this.  If I were you, I’d grab it while he still is offering it.  It’s a fabulous read.

Everything Affiliate Marketing

I can’t recall how I found Steve Scott but I had definitely heard of him before.  At the time I was already going through some affiliate marketing training so I bypassed his blog.  Silly me.  If you want to learn how to do affiliate marketing and be successful, you definitely need to visit Steve Scott’s Site.   Here is another successful affiliate marketer who is teaching you what he learned about making a six figure income.  I was blown away at the wealth of information he continues to crank out and his posts are not short.

Internet Marketing Mastery

This list would be nowhere complete without adding Pat Flynn.  If you have not visited Pat’s blog, Smart Passive Income, you are missing out.  I have been reading Pat’s blog since the first of the year.  My friend Benny Hsu actually took some of Pat’s advice and late last year went to work on creating his first app.  He released it last month and it’s a huge success.  Pat shares so many wonderful tips that can help you not only improve your blog but your business as well.

Anything Tech

I hope you all have met Carolyn Nicander Mohr from The Wonder of Tech.  She is amazing when it comes to writing about technology.  I have learned so much from her since first visiting her blog and I did’t know a thing about the majority of what she wrote.  But she has definitely taught me a thing or two and she’s the reason I invested in my first iPod Touch.  Boy, I’m sure glad I did.  If you want to learn about apps, cell phones, anything going on in the tech world, be sure to drop by her place.  She really explains things so that even I can understand.

Traffic Generation

The last one I’ll share with you is Ana Hoffman’s blog Traffic Generation Cafe.  I’m sure you all have been by there since she is the reason I recently wrote my post A List Of 165 CommentLuv Enabled Blogs.   Ana shares all about how to drive traffic to your blog and improve it in so many ways.  She is always sharing wonderful tips and things she has learned while on this journey.  I have no doubt you all have visited her before but just in case, I certainly don’t want to leave her off this list.

Wrapping It Up

The majority of the bloggers are definitely online to make some money.  But by sharing such valuable and informative content in order to entice you onto their mailing list, they are also sharing with us all what they have learned and how they got to where they are.

If you just apply a small percent of what you learn from any of these bloggers I mentioned above, you can also be well on your way to the same success.

I hope this was helpful.  If you have a few bloggers that you have been learning a lot from, please feel free to share them with us in your comment.  I’m always searching for great content and you know how much I love to learn.  There are so many areas I still have a ways to go in.

Enjoy your day!

Good list of bloggers Adrienne, I follow and read all their blogs regularly except for Steve Scott. I am checking out the blog right now to see what I can get from it.

October 3, 2011 at 10:38 AM

Thanks Eddie, so happy to hear that you are already visiting them. I have just found their information so useful and you know I love to shared some good things when I discover them.

Appreciate you letting me know so thank you for that. Now, have a great week!


3 Fred Tracy

Hey Adrienne!

I’m really interested in the subject lately. I want to know how to grow traffic effectively and efficiently.

I’ve already signed up for the six-figure blogger blueprint. There’s a lot of great advice here, thanks.


4 Adrienne Smith
October 3, 2011 at 10:40 AM

Hi Fred,

You’ll find some great tips regarding traffic over at Ana’s blog so dive into that one and you will be amazed at what she shares.

I was SO impressed with David’s six-figure blogger blueprint free report. He’s been there and done that and shares how you can do the same thing. Really a great read and so is his newsletter. I have Brankica to thank for pointing me to him.

Happy reading my friend! :-)


5 Lye Kuek Hin
October 3, 2011 at 9:02 AM

Hi Adrienne,

You will be amazed just what sorts of quality freebies people are giving out from their blog. David Risley’s six figures blogging blueprint is one of the earliest free report i sign up when i started blogging. Full of great advice in there. Mouh, Brankica, Steve, Ana and Pat are all familiar faces. The only exception is Carolyn whom i need to check her out.

Thanks for sharing the goodies.


6 Adrienne Smith
October 3, 2011 at 10:43 AM

Hi Lye,

I continue to be amazed at what I learn just from reading other people’s blogs. I’ve always been taught to give so much really valuable information away for free so that people can guarantee that if they purchase something from you that it will be of just as high quality. If they give that away for free, you can only image what the paid product will entail. David’s report blew me away. He definitely should be charging for that one, I would buy it!

Glad to hear that you are already familiar with the majority of them Lye. I love hearing that so thank you for sharing that with me.

Have a wonderful week!

October 3, 2011 at 7:40 PM

Hello Lye, I hope you have a chance to check out The Wonder of Tech. We would love to have you stop by for a visit! :-)

October 3, 2011 at 9:07 AM

Hi Adrienne, woo hoo look at me getting here so early for a change 😆

I totally agree that there’s a wealth of information available on blogs. When I first started online I didn’t use blogs & just sat alone trying to figure things out. I started the masterclass and had to put install a blog and this was really when I first started to open my eyes and wonder why I had sat alone for so long derrr :(

I’m quite confident that we can find pretty much anything we’re looking to learn via blog posts, as long as we know where to look 😉

I was on Mouh’s blog last week with his fantastic graphics, that he’s giving away. What a gem!! I have also visited Ana Hoffman and will add her to my regular list 😉

I haven’t yet visited the others you’ve listed but will make a point of doing so.

Other blogs that have really left a mark on me:
Sally Neill: not only because I’m being coached by her at the moment but previously I had learnt loads from her blog. She created a video showing people how to create ebook covers in 5 minutes. It took me a bit longer but I can now create my own covers and save money every time.

Eamon Diamond: Videos and blog posts that really help people move forward. I remember one he made on creating eBooks which I would have really made use of when I was sat alone trying to figure things out.

Both of those stick in my mind as I was really stuck trying to do both of these task, with little success. I will be linking to both of them in my Journey to success blog post series as I know they’ll help others as they have me.

I also have to give you a huge shout out Adrienne. Not only do you map you way online for us to see and follow but you also show us how to use the tools availabe to make sure we’re getting the most out of our efforts.

Have a great week Adrienne,

Respect and Regards, Barry


9 Adrienne Smith
October 3, 2011 at 10:48 AM

Hey Barry,

Welcome and happy to see you here first thing on this Monday morning. :-)

Glad you are familiar with a few of them and will check the others out. Sally’s blog is a gem but she had dropped of the radar for awhile there and quit blogging which is the only reason I didn’t put her on this list. But she is one heck of a lady to learn from. You are right, just dive back into some of the things she’s already shared and you will be amazed.

I’m not familiar with Eamond Diamond so I’ll have to check him out. I love to watch video tutorials.

Will look forward to seeing your Journey to success blog post series. I have no doubt it will be packed full of some great information.

Thanks for stopping by early Barry and for sharing these great tips with me. It’s really appreciated.

Have a great week yourself Mr. Wells!!! :-)


10 Dawn Kay
October 3, 2011 at 9:39 AM

Hi Adrienne

You really do find some hidden gems when you go blog hopping and I always learn so much while I’m doing it which is fab.

I’m a regular on Mouhs blog and always love his graphics so I definitely recommend people pop over there and check them out but I haven’t visited the other blogs you mentioned so will have to rectify that now.

Thanks Adrienne and take care



11 Adrienne Smith
October 3, 2011 at 10:51 AM

Hi Dawn,

Like Barry just mentioned in his comment, there is a wealth of information that can be found in blogs so when you locate them, I want to be sure and share what I find with my readers too. I only know so much and am able to share so much so there are so many areas I’m not that knowledgeable in. But once I find some people who are, I want you all to be able to take advantage and learn from them as well.

I love Mouh’s blog, he shares so many really cool things over there but his graphics are unique and really cool. Everyone can always use some of those.

Thanks Dawn for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful week.


12 Peggy Baron
October 3, 2011 at 10:56 AM

Hi Adrienne,

We hang out in the same circles. 😉 But there are 2 you’ve listed that I’ve not heard of so I’ll be moseying over to their sites shortly. Of the others, I totally agree with you. For me, it’s not enough that they have entertaining blogs and they spout out info, these bloggers KNOW what they’re talking about and share it freely. They walk the walk and that’s so important!



13 Adrienne Smith
October 3, 2011 at 12:27 PM

Hi Peggy,

I have no doubt we run in the same circles. That’s good to know! :-)

Hope you’ll find their info just as good as the others we already visit. You are so right, I love learning from people who have built their business on these same principles. They don’t hold anything back from us. They openly share everything and I so admire them for that.

Thanks for visiting today and hope your day has gotten off to a great start.


14 Mouh
October 3, 2011 at 11:33 AM

Adrienne, thanks a lot for including my blog here. It really means a lot to me. Thanks to you Lye Kuek Hin, Barry, Dawn and the rest. I am REALLY happy you love my graphics.

I have visited all the above blogs. But I have to admit I am not a regular visitor in some of them. I’ll just subscribe to make sure I don’t miss anything. I have just downloaded the Six Figure Blogger Blueprint 2.0 and can’t wait to check it out.

Again Adrienne, thanks a lot for all this. You’re amazing my friend.



15 Adrienne Smith
October 3, 2011 at 12:31 PM

Hey Mouh,

I LOVE your blog and all the information you freely give us constantly. Your graphics are amazing so I want everyone to be sure and get their hands on them as well.

I’m happy to hear that you’ve already visited all of these blogs. I love hearing that, it’s good news. You will be very impressed with David’s free report. Packed full of great information and I have no doubt you have so much to share as well.

Thanks for the visit and hope you have an amazing day! Best to you my friend. :-)



16 Bryce Christiansen October 3, 2011 at 1:06 PM

Hi Adrienne,

Thanks for all the great resources. Another one I’ve come across a few weeks ago that could help your readers is Dave Navarro’s Launch Coach workshops.

He recently decided to take a break from internet work and has made his workshops available to the public for whatever donation they see fit (free if you want).


There’s some good meat here. Thought I’d share.



17 Steve
October 3, 2011 at 1:07 PM


I was happily reading about David Risley and Brankica (two of my favorites) then I came to my name. Wow thanks!

I am familiar with all these bloggers (except carolyn) and I think they are all excellent and great company to be with. Thanks for the link and the kind words.

You rock!


I have already opened another browser window to go visit Carolyn, of course!


18 Justin
October 3, 2011 at 1:48 PM

Hi Adrienne,
I know almost all of these bloggers and have taken bits and pieces of useful information from each them. I think that I found David Risley first and Ana Hoffman second and between the two of them alone you can guarantee blogging success.

It really is all about finding the “right” resources on the web. Being that there are so many blogs out there it’s great to find some real quality ones.


19 Adrienne Smith
October 3, 2011 at 2:23 PM

Hey Justin,

Oh that’s fabulous, I’m so happy to hear that. So you found David before Ana? Where have I been? I’ve been following Ana for awhile but didn’t know anything about David. Boy, what a report he has and how generous he has been sharing his experience with us all. I felt like I hit a goldmine. Don’t get me wrong, I already knew about a lot of things he shared but he went a little more indepth then I have heard from others so that was extremely helpful.

You are so right, it’s about finding the right resources because there is so much information out there it can become mind boggling.

Thanks for sharing this with me Justin. That’s great to know!


20 Justin
October 4, 2011 at 9:25 PM

Have you ever attended a webinar with David. I have, a couple of times I believe. David, and Ana of course seem genuinely interested in helping aspiring bloggers like me to succeed.


21 Adrienne Smith
October 5, 2011 at 8:37 AM

I just found David recently so that answer would be a definite no. So you’ve attended a couple of them? I bet those were educational for sure.


22 Mandy
October 3, 2011 at 1:55 PM

Hi Adrienne,

I have visited most of these blogs and do enjoy them, but I just popped over to the techy blog as it’s something I often struggle with and I’m so pleased you shared that link with us! What a valuable source of information, now bookmarked for me!

Enjoy the journey.



23 Adrienne Smith
October 3, 2011 at 2:26 PM

Hey Mandy,

Great seeing you again, welcome back.

Carolyn is a blessing in disguise. She explains things so easily and if you ever have a questions about something, don’t hesitate to ask her. She is so generous with wanting to help others learn. She has truly been my life saver. I’m so behind on the majority of that but she has made it so easy for me now. I hope you enjoy learning from her as much as I have.

Thanks Mandy and enjoy your day!



24 Carolyn
October 3, 2011 at 7:46 PM

Hi Mandy, I’m so glad you checked out The Wonder of Tech and saved it with a bookmark! Feel free to ask any tech questions you may have. The blog is written for every day people in plain English. No geek speak allowed. :-)


25 Janet
October 3, 2011 at 12:57 PM

Adrienne, aloha. Saw the title of this post in my stream and had to come over to see what you had for us. Though I am familiar/frequent all of them, I must admit I had missed Mouh’s free offer which sounds fantastic. After a call in a couple of minutes, I am going to head on over.

In the meantime, I will put on my thinking cap of who else I know that offers us amazing treasures. Adrienne, I will be back later to drop that/those nugget(s) into the comment thread. Thanks so much for reminders which are always appreciated.

Best wishes for a spectacular week ahead. Until later, aloha. Janet


26 Janet
October 3, 2011 at 4:03 PM

Adrienne, aloha. Here is a resource for you:


He has a wealth of information behind the various tabs at the top. For anyone involved in the non-profit sector, this is a “most know” site.

Until I return with more nuggets, aloha. Janet


27 Adrienne Smith
October 3, 2011 at 4:14 PM

Ah thanks Janet, I’ll be sure to check out his page. I love new resources. You’re the best! :-)


28 John Garrett
October 3, 2011 at 2:01 PM

WOW. This whole post is awesome, especially Mouh’s graphics!

I can see I need to get over there and frequent his blog. Thanks so much for putting this together Adrienne.

That’s why I loves posts like this because even if you “get around” the blogosphere you can’t be everywhere and you’ve surely missed something. I appreciate the effort that goes into a round-up like this. All the best!


29 Adrienne Smith
October 3, 2011 at 2:53 PM

Hey John,

Why thank you for that, glad you enjoyed it and Mouh does have some awesome graphics. That guy is so talented and nice! Just plain old nice! You are going to learn a lot over at his place.

I agree, I love posts like this one. No matter how many blogs I visit, there are still plenty that have never been on my radar that have been life changing for other people. I love when they share this with us because there are so many areas I still could use some help in.

I appreciate you stopping by today John and congratulations on the eBook. I can’t wait to read it!


30 Harleena Singh
October 3, 2011 at 2:11 PM

Hi Adrienne,

What an awesome list!

While I do know most of the bloggers mentioned, it sure is great to know about so many others that you have introduced us to. It is always a treat to visit your blog and learn so many new things! I also recently visited Pat Flynn blog and was amazed with the things put up.

They sure are awesome bloggers, and thanks so much for sharing them with all of us :)


31 Adrienne Smith
October 3, 2011 at 2:55 PM

Hi Harleena,

Thank you, glad you like this list. I’m also happy to hear that you have already been visiting the majority of them. Although I like to introduce people to blogger they may not already know about, I love it even more knowing that you’ve beat me to it.

Have a wonderful day Harleena.. :-)


32 Harleena Singh
October 3, 2011 at 3:00 PM

Ah…I can’t beat you anywhere Adrienne! I am just about learning things myself, and have recently visited most of their blogs while surfing for stuff for my new blogs :) (updating to WordPress).


33 Jens P. Berget
October 3, 2011 at 2:36 PM

Hey Adrienne,

The only one I actually haven’t already read is the one at the Effortless Bookwriting Blog. All the others are brilliant, so I have no doubt in my mind that this one is just as brilliant :)

I’m heading over, and I’ll add this blog to my RSS-reader as well.

Thanks a lot for sharing awesome stuff.

– Jens


34 Adrienne Smith
October 3, 2011 at 2:57 PM

Hey Jens,

That’s great news, I’m happy to hear that you’ve already been visiting these other awesome bloggers for some time now.

Mouh is always finding such good plug-ins for WordPress and new features he’s sharing that I haven’t heard about before. I love his graphics and wanted to be sure that if you are ever in need of any, be sure and grab his. I can’t believe how freely he gives this away. I know I’m thankful for it!

Thanks for the comment and hope you are having a good start to your week.


35 Ruth
October 3, 2011 at 2:01 PM

Great list – some I follow already (LOVE Brankica), some are altogether unfamiliar (running to download those fab free graphics!). As always, fabulous resources. Thanks so much.


36 Adrienne Smith
October 3, 2011 at 2:31 PM

Thanks Ruth, glad you enjoyed this list and are already familiar with a few. Brankica rocks, there’s no other way to say it. She blogs mostly for the beginner but still shares so much I didn’t even know so I’m always learning from her.

Enjoy those graphics, they can come in very handy. I know that Mouh appreciates it.

Thanks Ruth!


37 Carolyn
October 3, 2011 at 7:51 PM

Hi Adrienne, Wow, thank you so much for including me among such esteemed bloggers! I really appreciate your spreading the word about The Wonder of Tech.

But I have to say you neglected to mention one of my absolutely favorite bloggers. Why just last week she took the time to list her favorite WordPress plugins. And when I asked her about one that I needed help installing, she answered my question right away and with the perfect information. She always is teaching me and others about websites, social media and other tech.

Does she sound familiar? 😉

Thank you, Adrienne for your generosity in helping others navigate through the different websites and showing us tech tools to make our world better. You rock!


38 Adrienne Smith
October 3, 2011 at 8:03 PM

Hi Carolyn,

There is no way I could leave you off this list. I mean if people want info on tech, you are the go to girl. And like me, you explain it in easy to understand terms. Terms we all appreciate and you are so helpful. So I had to add you to this list.

Ah, you are too sweet. I appreciate that! 😉

It’s definitely my pleasure Carolyn, all my pleasure. I’ll help on my end and you can help on yours! Deal!

Hope you are having an amazing day! :-)


39 Carolyn
October 3, 2011 at 8:45 PM


Thanks again, my wonderful friend! I appreciate you. :-)


40 Jimmy
October 3, 2011 at 11:41 PM

My Goodness Adrienne, looks like we have all hit the jackpot here. So much free information. The universe is truly full of abundance. There is really no need to compete for your share. All these stuff are our share. Thanks for all the great resources.

I must add that not only do these bloggers give away free and valuable information and products, but they also give away their most precious commodity – their time. I have to mention Steve Scott and you here. I can’t say enough how much the both of you have devoted time beyond your call of duty to help others like myself. You should write a post on this – My Secret to Finding Time to Help People.

BTW I have already signed up for The Six Figure Blogger Blueprint
Thank you so much.


41 Adrienne Smith
October 4, 2011 at 1:03 PM

Hey Jimmy,

I’m just happy to share with my readers some of the gems I have found while cruising through other blogs. I think we all have something unique to offer so for everything that I don’t know, here are some people who can help in those areas.

I am happy to hear that Steve gives of his time as well Jimmy. See, if you have a question or want to know something it never hurts to just ask. Because this is a relationship business, by us freely giving of our time and helping others, who do you think they are going to purchase things from first! That’s what this business is all about.

Ah, that’s a good one. Great title for a blog post, “My Secret to Finding Time to Help People”. That’s great Jimmy!!!

You are going to love that report of David’s. Please do let me know what you think once you’ve read the entire thing okay!

Now, have a fabulous week.


42 igor Griffiths
October 4, 2011 at 7:47 AM

Adrienne, you really mucked up today’s schedule with such a great list!

Glad you did, there are some really great productivity tips in each of the link, especially love the use of RSS feeds to monitor your market.

speak soon

igor Griffiths


43 Adrienne Smith
October 4, 2011 at 1:06 PM

Hey Igor,

I hope that’s a good thing, mucking up today’s schedule! :-)

I loved that RSS feeds monitor that Brankica shared. It never dawned on me and since I signed up for some of them, I’ve already found some gems. Really great share and happy to pass along this info to you all.


44 Marcus Baker
October 4, 2011 at 7:49 AM

Hi Adrienne,

What a treasure list of resources here! :) While I know many, I don’t know all so will definitely be adding these to my lists of blogs to visit.

There is so much wonderful information freely available online and it is great having bloggers such as yourself signpost us to resources that we might otherwise have missed. I will definitely be checking out David Risley’s Blueprint. That sounds like a winner to be sure.

I will also add that another phenomenal young star to follow is Glen Allsopp. His blog is ViperChill is jam packed with value.

Thanks Adrienne!



45 Adrienne Smith
October 4, 2011 at 1:16 PM

Hey Marcus,

Thanks for sharing that Marcus, glad you are already familiar with the majority of these bloggers. I love it when I come across other bloggers who give so freely to us of the resources they have found and learned from as well. It boggles my mind the amount of information that I get and how much I learn. David’s report is awesome and I was blown away by the amount of information that he shared in there. It’s a really great read.

I have heard of Glen but only visited his blog once when someone was dong a contest and he had mentioned the headlines that really captivated people. But have never been back over there so thank you for mentioning his blog. Will be sure to add that to my list and check it out in much more detail. I appreciate that!

Have a great week Marcus!


46 Julia October 4, 2011 at 1:39 PM

Hi Adrienne,

Even though I am not (at the moment) trying to make money off of my blog, some of these goodies can really help me anyway! Anything Tech will now be my new favorite! I feel like there is so much to learn but have decided to only learn about it when I need to use it. I tried to understand everything at once and that did not work out so well. Thanks for the links!!


47 Adrienne Smith
October 4, 2011 at 5:28 PM

Hi Julia,

Well, if you are thinking about leaning that way in the future you can sure learn a lot before you dive into that. These blogs will definitely help.

Oh, Carolyn shares so many cool things over at her place. If you love technology and keeping up to date with what the latest gadget is, she’s the person to follow. Thank goodness I found her or I would be in trouble. She’s truly been a life saver for me.


48 Brock Blohm
October 4, 2011 at 5:17 PM

I am loving the last one :) Traffic generation. I am happy with what has taken place so far in 3 months, but I am looking for more. This helps :) I’m digging in. Thanks :)


49 Adrienne Smith
October 4, 2011 at 5:34 PM

If you’ve never visited Ana’s blog before you are in for a treat. Watch out, you will be overwhelmed with fabulous information.

Have fun Brock! :-)


50 Dia October 4, 2011 at 5:28 PM

Hi Debbie,

You continue to share with us great info my friend and you keep introducing us to good bloggers. Learning from what goes on in the blogspehre can help us a lot. It is all about giving value to others my friend. Thanks for sharing Adrienne, great post 😉


51 Dia October 4, 2011 at 5:29 PM

Sorry Adrienne, I meant to say hi Adrienne 😉


52 Adrienne Smith
October 4, 2011 at 5:36 PM

Hey Dia,

At first I thought you were answering someone else’s comment until I realized I didn’t have anyone by the name of Debbie comment. But that is my sister’s name and people have called me that in the past so for you, you are definitely excused.

Glad you enjoyed this one and hope you found some good nuggets. Always a pleasure hearing from you. Even if you do call me by the wrong name! :-)


53 Lisa H. October 4, 2011 at 7:08 PM

Hi Adrienne,
Thanks for list. Some of these I have heard of (Pat Flynn and David Risley); many of them I haven’t. I am sure that these goodies will help me with the growth of my blog. Thanks for the list


54 Adrienne Smith
October 4, 2011 at 9:05 PM

Hi Lisa,

You are so very welcome, glad you enjoyed this list. Happy to hear you’ve heard of a few of these. I hope you enjoy checking out the rest of these. I know I have! :-)

Thanks for your comment and for taking the time to stop by today. Always a pleasure to see a new face over here.


55 Kaarina Dillabough
October 5, 2011 at 10:48 AM

Adrienne, visiting your site it like running to the gifts under a Christmas tree: so many wonderful gifts!

I’ve barely scratched the surface, but was so pleased to learn of Mouh’s graphics. Thank you. I will bookmark this and digest all the goodies over time. Adrienne, you rock! Thanks. Cheers! Kaarina


56 Adrienne Smith
October 5, 2011 at 12:29 PM

Why thank you Kaarina, I really appreciate you sharing that. I’m so happy to hear that I continue to give some good gifts. Music to my ears.

Ah, you’re going to love Mouh’s graphics. Some of them are really pretty cool and now he’s giving them to everyone for free. He continues to come up with some really inventive ones for sure. I have no doubt he’ll be sharing more over time as well as great WordPress tips.

Appreciate you stopping by and thanks again. :-)

Here’s the money making tip from my site: buy low, sell high…………..pretty good stuff, huh?

I actually know a handful of the peeps you have mentioned; some I am more active with than others. Especially Bran (Pit) and Carolyn.

Thanks for putting this together and sharing it with your readers. I hope your week has gone well.

If you get a chance I’m doing a GP at Margie Clayman’s tomorrow (Thurs). She must have been pretty desperate, huh?…….

Great tip Bill! :-)

I have no doubt you are familiar with the majority of them. So tell me Bill, were you surprised to learn that most of Brankica’s friends call her Pit and that she hates being called Bran? Was surprised to learn that about her. Heck, my close friends and family call me A because they couldn’t pronounce Adrienne when they were all young. Heck, I don’t blame them cause it’s a mouth full! :-)

You are all over the place now Mr. Invisible man. Will be sure to drop by Margie’s blog tomorrow and see what you’ll be sharing with us. I appreciate you doing one at Kim’s place. She had asked me as well but I was under the impression I had to write about 3D renderings that I know absolutely nothing about. Glad to know that’s not the case. Will see if I can find some time to do that for her. I know she’s really under a lot of stress right now. Glad to know her blogging community is stepping up for her.

See you tomorrow then! Have a great afternoon!

I was surprised to hear that; I thought Bran sounded pretty cool but if she’s not down with it I don’t want her shooting me………..:).

We did a Google + call today with Lori Gosselin and guess who was in the house? That’s right, Ms Brankica and I got to hear the correct pronunciation of her name. Pretty cool, huh?

Me too actually. For those of us that don’t know her on a more personal level, we would have thought that would be the shorter and more acceptable version. I heard an interview with her on a podcast and that’s one of the things she pointed out. She would much prefer us calling her Pit then Bran. SO glad I learned that and I hadn’t been calling her that. I’m sure she wouldn’t hate me for it though.

Ah, you lucky dog! Not only did you do a call with Lori but Brankica was in there too. Yeah, I heard it on the podcast but I would never be able to pronounce it right myself. So, I’ll just call her Pit! :-)

Thanks Bill!

Hey Edwin, great to see you again my young friend! How the heck have you been? You will probably really enjoy Carolyn’s blog, she’s the Queen of Tech! You’ll love it over there.

Thanks for stopping by, really enjoyed seeing you again.


63 Adam Sokoloff October 5, 2011 at 10:30 PM

Hi Adrienne, so looking forward to checking out all that you’ve linked to here. I know you always do your homework and put up some terrific references. and once again, you delight me with places to which I’ve never been.

I love that bloggers who don’t typically blog about web marketing or social media will also publish terrific content on those topics. Always finding some nugget or three from those awesome peeps!

Thank you as always for sharing Adrienne! -Adam

Hi Adam,

Hope you enjoy some of these awesome blogs. Knowing that some probably won’t be for you but you can definitely learn a thing or two from some of them. I know I have because like you said, you can definitely get some good nuggets from a few of these peeps.

Thanks Adam, always a pleasure to see you!

Great list of blog sites. I just went over the Brankica’s site and loved her post on “How To Stay Up To Date With Every Piece Of Info In Your Industry”. I have already implemented her tips. You are always great at sharing great content provided by others, so thanks for that.

I am now off to check out Steve Scott’s site.

Hey Rick,

Glad to hear you liked Brankica’s post. She shares some awesome tips over at her place Rick. And you will love Steve’s site, he’s right up your alley. That guys rocks the affiliate marketing world. Wish I had found him a year or so ago. But now that I have, I’m still a learning machine.

Enjoy and always a pleasure to see you!

Wow Adrienne!

When you say “goodies” you ain’t kidding sister! lol

I’m loving these “best of” types of articles you’ve shared since I have started reading your blog. Way to pile on the value! Aside from Ana Hoffman’s blog, these shares were ALL new to me.

I think I’ll probably be hitting Steve Scott’s site first! This is right up my alley! 😀

Cheers, Adrienne!

Hi Cat,

Well, I do aim to please! :-)

I love visiting these types of posts as well because I’m always being introduced to new bloggers that I can’t believe I had never seen before. I learn so much from each and every one of them.

You will LOVE Steve’s blog, he packs the punch when it comes to teaching you what he knows. Oh and the guy is a doll. If you have a question about something, ask away and he’ll reply to them all. Now that’s a guy who is here for the right reason.

Enjoy Cat!

Not the right place, I know, Adrienne, but couldn’t find the link on Facebook – this is the blog post I visited the other day before your quote, and I said I’d read something similar but couldn’t remember where:learn-grow-prosper.com/blog/poor-and-rich.

Enjoy the journey.

Thanks for the share Mandy, I’ll be sure to take a look at that.


73 Debbie Turner October 7, 2011 at 7:18 PM

Wow… this was fun and informative to read! It was a blogger’s goodie box. I visited a few of the links and loved what I saw.

Going to download the free graphics. Thanks for the “heads up” on this.

Like Cat, I like these ‘best of” articles. I’m going to have to do a couple also.

Glad you enjoyed the information Debbie! I do love sharing great tips and other blogs that I come across who always provide such great value.

Mouh shares the coolest stuff over at his place and is always coming up with more. I’ve got all the ones he’s created so far. They are really fun to use in eBooks or free reports too. They really dress it up.

Will look forward to seeing some of those “best of” posts from you in the future.

Thanks Debbie!

I loved this post Adrienne. I went and downloaded the graphics and visited a bunch of the sites. The best way to grow is to help each other. And this was definitely a helpful set of tools for the new and old blogger. Thanks for helping everyone be better. VaNessa

Thank you Vanessa, glad you found this post helpful.

I love to learn and share what I learn but there are some areas that are not my expertise or maybe I’m just now learning. Why make my readers wait when they are probably at the same place I am. I just hope that this information will be valuable to some people.

I also love Mouh’s blog and he continues to share a lot about WordPress plus he creates the coolest graphics. He’s so generous too with giving them away so I don’t want to not share this with all my readers too. Hope you enjoy them as much as I have!

I appreciate your message Vanessa and have a wonderful weekend.

Ah, you are so welcome Kesha! I have no doubt you are familiar with some of these I’ve listed. I know we can’t always catch every single one of their posts so glad I was able to point out a few I thought worthy of attention.

Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

I love blog hopping and am always amazed at what I find when I do it.

I should be doing more of it. It seems that life always gets in the way.

I love Mouh’s blog and visit if quit regularly. He always has some really great graphics or hint on how to make a post more attractive.

I am going to visit the rest of the blogs you mention as they also sound really good.

Thanks for all of the great info.

Hi Dee Ann,

Blog hopping can be time consuming but well worth your time if you locate some great information along the way that you really wanted to learn. I know that I have learned so much while on this journey.

You are right, Mouh is a wealth of information. I’m thrilled he’s so creative and willing to share all his graphics with us. As you can tell, I’ve used a few already. They’re fun!

Appreciate you stopping by today and hope some of these were helpful.

Have a wonderful week!

Excellent List Adrienne! I haven’t heard of a few off your list and I love Pat Flynn’s website. That guy can take something apart and put it back together and make you a believer. These are some great sites to check out and I am heading over to Scott’s Site now.

October 13, 2011 at 5:39 PM

Hi Adrienne,
It’s like Christmas came a bit early over at your blog! What a great idea to share the “best of the best” resources you’ve uncovered… great concept for a post (hmmm….. :-)

Now you’ve given me quite a few new blogs to check out! I’m always looking for new bloggers to include in my blog commenting strategy, so this list is like gold to me.

Thanks for sharing it, Adrienne. Have an amazing weekend!


88 Adrienne Smith
October 14, 2011 at 10:35 AM

Hi Bob,

Well maybe I’ll have to do another post like this closer to the Christmas holidays so we can have even more goodies flow our way! :-)

I do love sharing with my readers whenever I locate things because as you very well know, I don’t know everything. Some areas I’m not that knowledgeable with so why not point you in the direction of the people who can help more than me. Hope you’ll find some goodies over there.

You are so very welcome Bob and I hope your day is wonderful and your weekend is lots of fun! Have a good one!
