I loved what +Ryan Biddulph had to share in this post.  I think at times feedback can be good but most of the time it's not.

Check out his thoughts on this topic and let us know what you think.

Do you still think that commenting is just a waste of time?  Have you not been doing well with this process?

Check out what +Kevin Duncan shared in this post over at BoostBlogTraffic.com and you might have a change of heart.

He used some of my blogging buddies as examples of who is doing it right such as +Carol Amato, +Andrew Warner, +Harleena Singh, +Sherman Smith, +Richard Martin, +Lisa Sicard and many many more.
What does a great blog comment look like, and how do you write one? Here's a simple four-part formula that works every time.

I was happy when I stopped by +Sue Anne Dunlevie's blog only to find this post that had been written by my good blogging friend +Andrew Warner​.  Who doesn't love this kind of advice right!  

So are you doing any of these insanely absurd things as a blogger?  Gosh, I hope not.

Amazon has done it again and I have to admit, the Echo is pretty cool.  Will you be getting one?

Thanks for sharing this with us +Carolyn Nicander Mohr. 
Check out Echo, a new gadget from Amazon that answers your questions, plays music and tells you news and traffic conditions at your voice command.

I'm sure if you blog you've heard the term "Influencer Marketing".  The thing is that most go about this the wrong way.

+Ana Hoffman wrote about this last year but has revised that post and added even more goodies to it.  I had to mention it in my Magical Monday post today but if you missed this one be sure to read it.  I know you'll be glad you did. 
Influencer marketing is smart marketing. Here are 11 smart, memorable, and practical ways to get an influencer's attention. Learn, rinse, repeat.
