Notable links of the week

I have a routine of reading various blogs and groups throughout the week, and I learn all kinds of valuable things that I'm so grateful someone posted. So, I like to gather them up and pass them along for others who might might have missed this information.

Happy Friday!


By way of NA Sharpe’s blog, I have news of the 4th annual Muse Online Writers Conference: October 12 - 18, 2009. It’s free and it’s on-line! Registration ends August 1st.

Hi Elle,
Love this idea of sharing ideas and information from links you've found. I've learned so much from this one little tool of being able to make clickable links on my blog. How cool!

OH - and this comment is for Marvin, should he drop by...

The very second I posted this, I remembered that I hadn't yet learned how to make the pop-up links....so I raced over to the group, read the tutorial and fixed it right away!

It's even easier than I thought!

Hi, Elle,
I agree with Karen, this is a nice idea. May I steal if from you for use on my blog now and again??
Best Regards, Galen

Galen - sure, go ahead, it's not I invented it either *g*

Awesome--thanks for passing on what you found. :-)

Nice way to consolidate and also relieve yourself of the onus of writing on a day when folks are thinking elsewhere.

Great post for the end of the week. Friday round-ups are always perfect, and sharing information is always appreciated.

What a cool idea! Can I steal it for my own blog?

I'm glad everyone enjoyed it *g* I'm already working up a list for next week!
