Top Startup Blogs, All Traffic Does Not Convert the Same, Time Tracking Without Timers, and more…

Top Startup Blogs – A real-time blog ranking tool by Dharmesh Shah based on his blog grader. I must have made a wrong-turn at some point because I think I’m the only blogger in the top 20 who isn’t a millionaire.

All Traffic Does Not Convert the Same – Along the lines of my post Nine Levels of Traffic Quality (though he ranks traffic sources in a different order), this is an in-depth look at one marketer’s experience looking at conversion rates from various sources (press release, social bookmarking, SEO, PPC and direct), as well as A/B testing landing pages for huge improvements.

Time Tracking Without Timers – Runs on your Mac and “figures out” what you’re working on so there’s no need for timers or manual entry. Launched this week from Micropreneur John Gallagher.

Skorks (An Underrated Developer Blog) – Good topics. Good writing. Check it out if you’re into the craft of software.

Finding Joy in the Terror of Starting Something New – Good advice from Pamela Slim on how to get over your terror and make things happen.

An Excellent WordPress Shopping Cart – I used PHPurchase on a recent site and it’s fantastic. Highly recommended if you need to sell physical or digital goods using WordPress.
