    @Stanford That’s exactly why I was doing weekly roundups. But, if I’m only writing 2-3 posts a week, I didn’t want a third of my posts to be roundups. i’m trying to decide if I should bring it back. I’ll be interested to see your recap on the changes.

    @lauraclick Yep, I decided to kick it up a notch. I’ll probably write a post to share my thoughts after 30 days. I have to admit that I did a round-up post because 1) It’s easy to write and 2) I love em’ so if I find them useful than I imagine PSers would to.

    I noticed you were posting a lot this week – way to go! You’ll have to let me know how it works out for you. I suspect that increasing frequency also increased traffic. Am I right?

    I like roundup posts – I think with all of the great content out there it’s helpful to people. I’ve done this in spurts, but haven’t been sure if it’s useful to people or not. It may be time to bring it back. We’ll see.
