Look What I Stumbled Upon This Week

  • Sharebar

This week I’ve been spending a lot of time behind the scenes working on the new home of this website.  As a result, I didn’t get a chance to visit as many sites as I normally do; however, I think I still found some gems below that you’ll want to read.

If you like these links, please leave a comment on their website and/or share them on your social media sites.  Also, I’m always looking for feedback on how to make this series more helpful to you so please let me know any suggestions you have in the comments below.

If you’re new to this series, every week I share my favorite links from bloggers that I have Stumbled Upon during the week.  These links will feature resources for blogging and social media, as well as, great posts on incorporating our Christianity into our businesses and the marketplace.  There may even be some random stuff that makes you laugh.

Fill up that coffee mug, and let’s see what I Stumbled Upon this week.

Hi Brad,

Liked the “Too Busy Disorder” posted on Brandon’s site and its reference
“Today could be the day that you save a friend”

Really hoping that people won’t be suffering so much from TBD that they have no time to investigate the health issues surrounding aspartame (nutra sweet) and sodium fluoride ( in water and toothpaste) – as highlighted at http://noaspa.com.

There’s a poll on the noaspa site for people to vote and express their level of concern about these issues. So far, in the first few days of the campaign, only 21 votes have been cast with 19 being very concerned, 2 being slightly concerned and none being unconcerned. The idea is to generate a million votes through a social networking campaign – but at this rate it’s going to take a few thousand years!

Any thoughts on how to speed things up –
I was hoping that the target would be achieved by the end of this year (at the latest!)

All the best from Hamburg

Hang in there Will. I’d start by searching the fitness/vegan blogs. It’s an audience that should be receptive to your message, and you could get quite a bit of support from them. Guest post and comment like crazy on these sites.

Try contacting medical reporters like Sanjay Gupta from CNN. One story aired during the right time could easily generate huge traffic to your site. This would be the quickest option to get to a million votes. Also, they usually have high traffic blogs where you could generate support.
