  1. I thank you for pulling this post together. I’ve visited quite a few of the links and picked up great advice for keyword strategies (I need to follow my instincts more), as well as the importance of writing good quality content. I’m very new to blogging – only been at it four months and this information will help me build a better foundation.

  2. Great list, off to check some of them out. The marketing for people with no time seems appealing. Obviously it does take time but the key is not to letting it suck up too much time!

    Not sure how much my blog is worth – how do you value them?! Might have to auction it off on Ebay (no reserve) to find out but the answer might not be as appealing as yours!

  3. Thank you Steven for the great list of blogs and for including mine. I truly appreciate it.

    You’re right, $114,000 isn’t bad at all? :)
