I also hope you liked the stories of Megan, Nicole, and Heather about how they both dealt very differently with quitting their blogs. I know I learned a lot from hearing them share their experiences.

This week has thrown up some interesting reading – I hope you find a useful nugget in there somewhere.

  1. It’s predicted Instagram will be more popular than Twitter in the next 5 to 10 years. What do you think?

  2. Still have lots to do from 31 days… podcast, but loving it! And am definitely going to make many of the days a monthly occurrence. Thanks for the roundup!

  3. Great roundup. I especially like the Pinterest case study. For the right brand Pinterest can be a gold mine.
