Robyn certainly echoes the sentiments of bloggers who’re focused on building a brand.
In case you’re not familiar with paid posting, it works like this:
A company contracts a paid posting service provider to get bloggers to blog about their company, product or service. Usually, the stipulation is that the post must contain a backlink to the company. Bloggers may be required to post pre-written (usually positive-slanted) content and there may be safeguards to ensure they don’t post any negativity about the subject.

To recap, speedlinking is to summarize some of my friends and contacts and their projects to help our ever expanding community grow a little closer. It builds on the ‘pay it forward’ thinking.
In case, you’ve missed the previous installment, my friend, Jag Senghera, kicked off the first installment here.
I continued the second installment here.
Today we go into the third installment.
Stuart Tan runs InternetMarketingSingapore: Stuart is an amazing guy. One reason why i’m speedlinking is that my neural connections are a little fried after talking through some Internet Marketing issues earlier this evening. He’s launching some new programs in October and if you’d like to be kept in the know, leave a comment and I’ll include you in the notification list.
The Japanese Are Crazy: one of the most unconventional sites on the web, check out the video clips. You’ll watch and think that the Japanese are the most innovative people on the planet, or they’re simply insane. Maybe even both. Check it out and leave a comment.
Kloudiia.com: Welcome to Kloudiia’s kit: dating affairs. An interesting mix of dating advice, magical quotes and occasionally Biblical references. Check out the Ask Kloudiia section where you get to pose your enquiries to the dating dame. I read it regularly. You should too.
GobalaKrishnan.com: one of the better Malaysia-based Internet Marketing blogs in the blogosphere, Gobala puts out quality content on WordPress-based blogging and adsense. I especially like his post about his Internet Marketing journey. It’s well worth the read. You can check it out here.
RomanceFire: This is my friend, JhongRen’s blog. It chronicles his wedding preparations since December 05. Wow, that’s a long time. I think I spent about 2 months preparing for my own wedding. But do check out his wedding preparation advice too. But regarding the activities on the wedding night itself, you have to figure those out yourself.
SoccerTipCentral: until a short while ago, my friend, Aloysius Nge, had one of the most…shall we say enigmatic avatars on the Internet. I’ve helped him snap a new photo (whether he uses it is another matter). Do check out his site though. I’d expect that it’d help you do better on wagers on the game where 22 men on a very big field run after a small little ball. Face it, it beats staring at the wall on Sunday.
