Weekly Blogging Link Roundup

Welcome to the Weekly Link Roundup for October 8.

The Best Links of the Week

1. Knowing I was looking for more men to contribute to the Weekly Roundup, I was grateful Ken Dowell offered his technology post.  What used to seem surreal and belonging to the science fiction genre, is now very much a part of our world.

Here is an excerpt from his article:

…technologists believe that computers will continue to shrink to the point of being invisible to the human eye. At that point you can’t plug them in or carry a battery, even if we do, as some believe, come up with batteries that last 50 years.

The Mayan apocalypse was predicted to occur less than three years ago.  Some people believed it would occur when artificial intelligence was a reality.  Ken ends his post with examining these issues. Check out Coding Our Future: Smaller, Smarter and Everywhere.

2. Recently, my guest author wrote 8 Backlinking Mistakes That Every Blogger Should Avoid.  The post seemed to raise as many questions about Search Engine Optimization as answers.  Kathleen from 60-thenew40.com, in her article Why Alexa Ranking Is Important, answers many questions regarding the importance of an Alexa ranking.  Most readers know it should be low.  For an explanation of why that matters, read her article.

(SEO Note: If you subscribe to MostlyBlogging, and you would like to be added to the Link Exchange, leave your blog URL and blogging niche in the comments section.)

3. Before I started blogging, I never knew that authors need to blog in order to generate interest in their literature.  When I read time-management tips from an author/blogger, knowing she spends her time attempting to publish as well as maintain a successful blog, I took her tips seriously.  Bloggers’ biggest concern is lack of time. I hope you will take Helena’s time-saving tips to heart. She called her article 6 Essential Tips on Time-Management for Writers and Bloggers.

I hope you enjoyed this week’s selections. Hopefully, the topics of technology, SEO, and time-saving tips offered plenty of variety.

If you would like exposure to new readers, I would be happy to promote your article for you. Please submit your links related to blogging, writing, productivity, search engine optimization, technology, or social media in the comments section below.

Readers, please share, so others have a chance to meet these bloggers and get the expertise from their articles.

When you are done checking out the articles, let me know what you thought in the comments section.  Do you believe computers will one day become smarter than people as Ken’s post implies? Did Kathleen’s article help clarify the importance of a low Alexa ranking? Which of Helena’s time-saving tips do you think you might try? I look forward to your views.

    I think the speed that Artificial Intelligence is progressing is increditable. We only use a small percentage of our brain. The computers just keep getting smarter and smarter and it seems only a minute amount of people are using more of their brain to make computer do more human things.

  2. Janice Wald

    It would be nice to have a crystal ball to see where it will end. I mean, computers can’t actually become smarter than people eventually, can they…?

  3. Charles Rogers

    Well, here is another addition to my fund of knowledge. Thanks very much. I can, always use some more information like this. I use to start my morning with the NYT; now I start each day with “Mostly Blogging”.

    • Janice Wald

      LOL. Thanks! Did you see the comments about artificial intelligence? Reading your posts gave me the feeling you’d have an opinion. Do you think computers’ intelligence will ever bypass humans’ intelligence?
