Party computer buttonWritten anything fascinating lately about blogging, marketing, writing, freelancing, productivity, or work-from-home issues?

If so, please share it with the group!

Today’s our May First Friday link party. This is your chance to get some new blog readers and grab some attention for the great stuff you’re writing on your blog.

As it happens, I’m presenting at SOBCon today in Chicago and kinda crazed…so it’s a great day to hand the blog content over to my talented subscribers.

Links are limited to 100, so post early.

Good luck everybody!


  1. Erica

    Thanks, Carol, once again for hosting such as awesome party (with the best deserts). I really love looking at everyone’s awesome blogs. Thanks!

  2. Terri

    For some strange reason that link party code does not want to cooperate.

    I just may need to find a new way around it…

    • Erica

      This is the first time it’s ever worked for me the first time. I’m probably more excited than I should be.

    • Carol Tice

      Remember to paste the party code onto the post back on your site…that’s the magic.

    Hmmm… maybe I am having a blonde moment, but that invite code is not working on my site. In the end I inserted the pic in my post and linked pic to this site… That’s my way around it!

  4. Willi Morris

    Well, there goes my Friday. Looks like a TON of great posts.

  5. Karen

    Hey, Carol, just a shout out: I think it’s great you’re presenting — what is your subject; what is SOBCon?
    Also, in a marketing vein, a friend and I need to print up quick business cards for an event we’re attending tonight – I’ve bought an Avery pack before and it took forever to try to work the template (I finally gave up) and they were really expensive — any good suggestions from any of you marketing mavens out there?

    • Willi Morris

      Hey Karen! Carol may not respond for a bit, but I asked her this yesterday. It’s called Successful Online Business. Here’s a link –

    • Carol Tice

      It’s the successful online business conference — they stream it so you could watch mine if you were around a few minutes back.

      I presented on how I built the Den to success by being customer-centric…all the research I did and continue to do asking readers and Den members what they need from me. And how creating a lower-priced product like the Den was key to building my business, as so many more readers can afford it, than, say, 4-Week Journalism School, which appeals to a more elite group.

      And the business cards thing….VistaPrint.
