There is a lot of content that I consume each week on topics such as design, web strategy, SEO, and productivity. Some of it is posted to my various social media channels such as LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Google+. A few of those posts stand out more than the others. Here are some of last weeks favorites.

One of the hardest things to do is network. You may enjoy but you don’t have time or some other excuse will pop up to keep you from doing it well. There are some great tips in the article How I Stopped Sucking at Networking. It’s worth a read before your next networking opportunity.


I love to mountain bike and when I saw 13 Things Startup CEOs Can Learn From Mountain Biking I had to read it. There is some great advice and I would like to add one more. When you crash, and you will crash, you still have to get up, get back on the bike and finish the ride.


You probably spend a lot of time working on that blog post. You have done your research, worded your piece just so, and made sure autocorrect didn’t change one word for another. Your ready to send that post out into the world, but wait, you need a photo. Don’t just grab (steal) a photo of the web, here are 53+ Free Image Sources For Your Blog and Social Media Posts.
