- PC World has written a piece that someone more cynical than me would call pretty smart linkbait – 100 Blogs we Love.
- Blog Tutorials asks if Link Trains are the Chain Letters of the Blogging Age?

- The Contest Blogger is a blog about all the blogging competitions going on around the blogosphere.
- Martin writes a guide to Alexa – will a blog ever make it to number 1? Highly unlikely.
- Beth has a good Screencast which Demystifies Google Analytics. It’s not blog specific but a good introduction.
- Avinash has more metrics talk with his post on Bounce Rate (he asks if it’s the Sexiest Web Metric Ever? – I’m not quite sure if it’s sexy – but it is useful).
