The Enormous Post-Launch Best of the Web

A lot has gone on in the month and a bit since our last Best of the Web post.

Specifically, the launch of Engagement from Scratch! and all of the work associated with it. It would be easy for me to forget that the rest of the internet has been pretty busy, too – but no, I’ve been paying attention, and I’ve got a particularly engaging list of great stuff to share with you today.

So, without further ado, a MONSTER Best of the Web! 😀

Food For Thought

These are some of the best, most interesting posts I’ve read in the last few weeks – although the list is by no means exhaustive – I recommend you check out what you can.

Guides, Tools and Advice

A lot of people have been putting a lot of work into creating “comprehensive” guides in one subject or another lately. The sheer volume of information is almost overwhelming, but if you really want to learn, you should give the following a look:

Interviews and Info about Engagement from Scratch!

I’ve been thrilled with the online response to Engagement from Scratch! It’s been pretty exciting to be on the “interviewee” side of the table for once, and I can’t express enough appreciation for all the bloggers who took the time to share their opinions on this project!

Honorable Mentions

We’ve been mentioned several times by some truly awesome bloggers this month, and we couldn’t be happier about it!

And… 24(!!!) New Guest Posts

To help promote Engagement from Scratch!, I wrote a lot of guest posts.

A whole lot.

(They don’t call me the Freddy Krueger of Blogging for nothing!)

I’d like to take this opportunity to again thank those bloggers who gave me the opportunity to share with their audiences.

So there we have it – a MONSTER Best of the Web.

But just because we included a lot of great sites, doesn’t mean we didn’t miss something great.

If you can think of a blog post or article that belongs on this list, let us know in the comments.

      Marcus, you’re the one who’s awesome – when I first ventured online, you’re one of the first people I found that I could really look up to, and your example is a big part of the amazing momentum that we’re seeing here at Firepole Marketing. Thank you! :)
