Link Mashup #10 for 22nd October 2012 – Well it’s the return of the Link Mashup… Yay! And I must sincerely apologize to you guys for the delay in getting one out to you in a timely fashion. Here’s my honest reason…
I’ve been pretty busy with finishing off my new eBook, as well as doing web projects for a couple of clients. My other online businesses are also heading into their busy season, so I’m kind of finding myself strapped for time getting the posts out as frequent as I want to, but like everything else, I’m working on it. It’s all good fun though right?
OK so I’ve collected some great posts over the last 3 weeks or so, but before I start pointing you off to different areas of the web for some recommended reading, here’s a quick reminder why I put together a resource post which I call ‘the link mashup‘.
Every few weeks or so I roundup the top posts from the blogosphere, posts that I believe is worth reading and that can help you on your quest for online business and blogging success, and therefore recommend them to you to read. Posts are naturally focused on the topics of online marketing, blogging, SEO and link building, social media, internet entrepreneurship and making money online.
So without further ado, let’s get started on link mashup number 10.
