  1. Woah, coincidence that David Airey did a similar topic round-up today or yesterday… and you both mentioned You Thought We Wouldn’t Notice. 😛

    Veerle’s competition was great, awesome prizes and such great entries!

    Great post! I’m going to check some of those out now. 🙂

  2. Verne, your welcome 🙂 How long have you been blogging for?

    Kristarella… I wonder if David knew about you thoughtwewouldntnotice before that 22 plagiarised post I did? I have been compiling the list gradually so it was bit of a coincidence, I have just checked his post 🙂

    Andrews, Thanks!

    Randa, Your welcome.

    I don’t know. I didn’t go to the site when you did that post because that stuff can be really annoying. There is nothing new under the sun… very similar things can be created independently of each other. However, that site seems to be really well researched, it’s not just pointing fingers willy nilly.

    I did think it was a coincidence – this didn’t look like the kind of post you’d knock together in an hour (unless you’re a much better blogger than I am, well you might be anyway, but that’s beside the point). 🙂

    kristarella’s last blog post..My own 365 ( 1) Project

  4. Wow – a very complete list! Awesome compilation, and thanks for the link love. 😉

    PS: I’m not THAT new to the blogging world. ;P

    Verne’s last blog post..13 ways to liven up your work-at-home routine

  5. Verne, Oh really? I thought you were new with your new website and all 😛 I have only been doing it for approx 4 months now. Much less than you.

    Lauren, Your always welcome 🙂 Self marketing is always a bonus 😛

    Kristarella, Well to do lists like this, dreamweaver makes it a breeze along with photoshop, its quite easy to do.

  6. Nice, hopefully I’ll be buying Adobe Design Premium and getting to play with Dreamweaver, but I think that actually reading and choosing all these articles would be the time consuming part. Then again, if you had this article in mind for a while you could just tag the articles in your feed reader as you go along.

  7. Kristarela, Well I have read all the articles over the month and I just go over what I have read and found interesting and then add it to a big list, pretty easy. Dreamweaver is great 😀

    Regan, that site was cool, it has some great pics in there, bookmarked 😀

  8. @Jacob – Probably just over a year now. I started my current site last July, but ran another one passively for a few months before that too. I guess in the bigger picture I’m still a rookie. 😀 How about yourself?
