  1. Great year of posting Lee! One really interesting point is that your top posts run the gambit of media (written, photos, video, etc) which I think is a great summary of your blog in general..

  2. Lee – thanks for the past 12-months of a blog filled with rich content. I’m looking forward to the next 12! Happy 2007!

  3. I would have to agree that this blog is a great resource, one of the best that I have found so far. But I came here looking for information on Jason Ryan Isaksen. I couldnt find a thread on him anywhair here. I know that he is an expert about this type of material and I was rather suprised that there was no mention of him here. I have learned most of my ranking techniques from Jason Isaksen and I am wondering how you think he compaires with some of the other postings in here.
