    This came at just the right time. We’ve neglected blogging due to restructuring and have been ramping up again….which is always the time that ideas die on the vine, right? I particularly like the idea of using topsy. It’s easy to take a look and see what’s going on and what was once interesting. Thanks for the rec.

    PS – love ubersuggest for all sorts of reasons….

  2. Rae, Thank you for your Topsy tip, I am going to try it out now. Would you by chance be willing to write a step by step guide, day by day as you tackle a niche for affiliate marketing? I’d love to learn your process but I understand if you don’t want to give it away.

    • Me too, me too …about the Topsy tip…seems very interesting stuff. I support you Pandian about step-by-step guide you asked for.

    I love your Topsy idea, about scanning the archives!
    After writing a “better” version, I’m envisioning looking up who linked to the past,highly tweeted content, and letting them know an improvement is available.

    One of my standard go-to’s is pulling Google Alerts into Google reader on specific query strings to see a constant list of ideas.

    Hi Rae, great article. After reading it I was going to share it on my FB and maybe on my blog, but because I like to run things in a professional manner, sadly, I can’t do that because of the language you are using in a few spots in the article. Just thought I’d let you know that in the future you may want to restrain your self from using words like “sh**” in your articles so people like me would not have anything in the way of sharing and linking to it. I wasn’t going to say anything but thought it would maybe be useful info for you. :) Thanks for the good info anyway.

      Totally understand that you can’t share it due to my language. :) That said, I won’t be toning my language down. I use the F word, the S word, etc regularly. If people don’t want to share or take in my info because of that, I’m ok with that. I am who I am. :)

  5. Thanks for reminding about Delicious. I’ve totally forgotten about it. I’d also like to add another site to this list, Stumbleupon. I found it very useful to find certain topic ideas.

  6. Thanks for reminding about Delicious.
