Re-Tweeted – 73 Top Posts from the Last Week

Earlier this morning I did a little experiment on Twitter and asked my followers to nominate their best post from the last week with a URL and Title. I said that I’d ‘Re-Tweet’ the best of them.

I did this because I was feeling a little uninspired (I’ve been sick) and needed to read some great content to get my creative juices flowing.

What resulted was an avalanche of great posts being submitted. There were 50 in just a few minutes – so instead of re-tweeting just a few of them I thought I’d compile them here with the hope that it might inspire readers to see what a variety of other bloggers have put together in the last week.

The list is rather random and eclectic in terms of topics as you’d expect – enjoy the following 73 links (I hope I got everyone):

  1. Sweet! Thanks for the linkback, Darren.

    I’ll have to spend some time and go through all of these links… that’ll take a while.

  2. Glad to have been able to contribute something. Look at all these new Twitter users to follow! :D

  3. Thanks for the link, Darren! Looks like I have some reading ahead of me.

  4. Hey, cheers, Darren, that’s very cool of you. There’s got to be a good way to leverage this kind of linkage and I’m looking forward to seeing what you have up your sleeve.

    @ Michael – Shameless. Really.

  5. TrishaLyn says:

    Thanks for the link Darren – and I’m digging the collection of links. I am checking out a few that jumped out at me. Good idea for getting the juices flowing.

  6. Mike Keliher says:

    Thanks for the link. It’s appreciated.

    …and I’ve found some more great reading material.


  7. Bisco says:

    Stumbling this – hopefully it’ll drive even more traffic to those listed. Great idea.

  8. Darren — Great idea and thanks.

  9. Jason Drohn says:

    That’s a good idea Bisco!

    Great articles everyone, and thanks for the opportunity Darren!

  10. Myrna says:

    Thanks again Darren. Thanks to Twitter as well. That place is amazing, so much meeting, talking, learning going on there. If only all people knew. It was made just for me.

    You know I’m involved with Oprah & Eckhart Tolle’s live webcast class and they have millions of people around the globe listening on Monday nights.

    What you did here reminded me so much of that..good will brings back a big return-the law of attraction, yes?

  11. alli says:

    Sorry you aren’t feeling well. Great idea to keep the content going though. Thanks for the link.

  12. Thanks for the link Darren, great post – always good to find new blogs to read and this is an excellent way to read some you probably otherwise wouldn’t find.

    As a relatively new user to Twitter who’s still fumbling around, getting the hang of all the ettiquette etc. I’ve found it fascinating to watch all the responses come back to Darren (is that tweet-stalking, lol), firstly after he tweeted asking for links, and then the responses once this post went up… searching for @problogger at Tweet Scan seems to isolate those responses nicely.

    Thanks again, enjoyed this immenseley. My Twitter Profile: MartyJ

  13. Nice idea Darren, thanks for the linkage. I’ve been experimenting with my blog and Twitter lately as well.

  14. Thanks for putting this together Darren! This has certainly given me some impetus to put deep thought into my blog postings. :-) I look forward to the next one.

  15. Alex Hammer says:


  16. Thank you very much for the mention in the list!!!

  17. Oh man – how did I miss this? Oh well, I’ll be keeping a close eye for my next shot at a free link ;)

  18. Neil Duckett says:

    Just worked out how to reply in Twitter … won’t miss the next one now!

  19. This was a fantastic idea, the only problem is that before I saw this list I thought I was going to get some sleep tonight. Thanks for the idea, and thanks to everyone who contributed your blogs!

    Now I’m off to read and follow people I did not know on Twitter!

  20. Thanks for the link love Darren and great to meet everyone in the list.

  21. I love Twitter – and I just added you Mr. Problogger! Hope you’re feeling better soon! I’ll add you to my prayer list *=)

  22. Guess I missed out on this. Was busy working.

    The Masked Millionaire

  23. You should do this on a regular basis – I found a few new gems that I didn’t know about before. Thanks!

  24. michele says:

    Frist time here in a very long time. Time to come back, I see as there is much to be had here. Sorry, I’ll be back again!

    Is the party over?

  25. cory huff says:

    This was a great idea and a nice demonstration of the power of Twitter. I’ll be lost for days in new weblogs.
