27 Posts That Will Save Your (Blogging) Life

in Editor's Corner


Ok, so that title is a little extreme. ๐Ÿ™‚

Truth be told, though, this list is rather unique. It’s been the most well-rounded week I’ve seen in a long time, with posts ranging from being a better person, to being a better writer, to great women bloggers, to helpful tools, to politics, all the way to muffins and then how to manage your weight (after you eat those muffins, of course).

Weekly list of posts from bloggers I interact with here on the blog, on Twitter (@bizchickblogs), or atย WeBlogBetter orย TechnShare.

Hi Tia,
The headlines look like great reads. I’ll be sure to check out these articles.

Thanks for including my post in your article!

Have a great weekend and take care!


Libby Fisher September 10, 2010 at 12:05 pm

Hi Tia, thanks for mentioning my post! I really appreciate it! ๐Ÿ™‚

This is a fantastic idea to do a round up of blogs, posts, etc. It’s a win-win situation – your readers (me!) get an excellent list of blogs and links worth reading right at their fingertips without having to screen them first (thanks to you!); all of the bloggers who are mentioned here enjoy some new traffic (thanks to you!); and your readers (me!) look forward to reading your round ups every week – a great way to keep people coming back to your site!

Anyways, I am sure I am not telling you anything you don’t already know – but I just wanted to say thanks!!

Gera @ Sweets Foods Blog September 10, 2010 at 9:27 am

I like these lists of “better to” several points, finally we have a compendium of several worlds inside us and we must improve, not only in blogging.

Those delicious muffins can be a problem without workouts ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thanks a lot for the mention of my weekly round up! An honor to be in first place ๐Ÿ™‚ I see more material to read that I’ haven’t this week, good stuff!

Have an excellent week,


Gera @ Sweets Foods Blog September 10, 2010 at 9:29 am

PS: Have an excellent week-end!

T. September 10, 2010 at 11:14 am

I look forward to this round up every week – I’ve found so many great writers and great blogs to read…and now look, I’m here….how sweet is that? Thanks for the mention and for the weekly round up……you’re the bomb! (do people still say that….hopefully it still means what I think it means…. you’re cool, rad, awesome, peechy keen, you rock dude….there, I’ve covered every age bracket. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Ryan Biddulph September 10, 2010 at 7:57 am

Hi Tia,

A great list you’ve shared with us here, thanks for taking the time to put it together. I liked the Bounce Rate piece by Josh Garcia.

As for the pic my mouth is watering. Minty!

Have a great weekend.

Another excellent list Tia. I particularly enjoyed Should You Publish A Mean Blog Post or Comment and Numbers Don’t Matter, People Do

Kathy September 10, 2010 at 7:50 am

You deliver every Friday more reliably than my mailman. And every Friday for the last few weeks I got to smile because of it. People are going to get sick of hearing me say how awesome I think you are. — Thank you. You are in a good circle that I hope is as generous to you as you are to them.

I’ve been reading a lot more lately from Doctor Jay over at Hive Health Media. He has some in depth stuff over there.

That post you linked to from me really hit home today. You’ll see why.

Tia Peterson September 10, 2010 at 7:14 pm

You’re always welcome, Kathy.

Re: your post… What do you mean? What did I miss? Send me an email or something to tia @ bizchickblogs dot com so I can be in the loop.

Dev@Make Money Blogging September 10, 2010 at 7:11 am

Hey Tia,

Another awesome roundup. Thanks for the support tia. Much Appreciated.

Matthew DC September 10, 2010 at 3:47 am

Great list Tia!

Thanks for featuring me this week, i’m honored! I actually missed a few of those posts so now I have homework for the weekend. =)

I love lists like this, btw. I am definitely a blog junkie. I read waaay too many blogs…

Tia Peterson September 10, 2010 at 7:09 pm
