Great list.

But, what do you mean by "borrowing" content?

Ad Tracker said...

Dcr - Well, if you give it back in a couple of days, it's not really stealing is it?

I'm kidding! I meant small snippet quotes and such ;)

Glad you liked it.

Thou shalt leave a valid comment on posts you deem worthy.


This was so cool.

Joe said...

Adtracker,

I can't beleive this has been posted in Stumble, reddit or netscape! Talk about being a forward thinker! Anyway, I submitted to all of them.

Just email me or msg me on MBL anytime you some link lovin'!

I hope you know by now I am not hip to all the abrevs out there, so what the heck is TIA?

Ad Tracker said...

@ Sapheyerblu - HaHa LOL! Good one! Thanks for thinking enough of it to comment :)

@ Joe - Thanks so much! Maybe we can do something with this one :)

TIA = Thanks In Advance ;)

Actually, as per http://reddit.com/help/reddiquette, submitting your own self-generated content to reddit is encouraged. "Linkjacking", submitting an entry which is just a link to other content, is frowned upon.

Ad Tracker said...

Daniel - Thanks for pointing that out! It has since been corrected. Stop in any time :)

Markus said...

Hi. Nice list! I just subscribed to your blog! Nice content, but I must admit that I don't really like the design :) But I guess this is because of the background color ;)

I'm really loking forward to take a look at your new projects... And of course I hope you will be able to start them first :)

Best regards from Germany

Markus

Ad Tracker said...

Markus - Thanks!

Yeah, I know, the design is kind of "bubblegum" looking. Watching all of the blogs updating their designs has me thinking I probably will too pretty soon.

New projects are a lot easier to talk about than actually do :)

Stop in any time!

ColorStruck said...

Great post! Decided to subscribe to your feed as a result!

Nick said...

So did you "borrow" this post from someone? Just kidding.

So do we get any clues as to what the new projects are?

Ad Tracker said...

@ Colorstruck - Thanks! Glad to have you on board.

Don't forget to click on in from time to time.


@ Nick - I might have gotten the idea from a famous book ;)

All in due time :)

Fantastic blog! I don't think Ive seen all the angles of this subject the way you have pointed them out. You are a true star, a rock star man. You have got so much to say and know so much about the subject.
