Blogging – Social Media – Internet Tools – Food: The Best of the Week

I didn’t start with the correct foot this year. Near 2 days with doctors for a member of my family and…hospital for all type of tests. Finally the problem didn’t need surgery…luckily only a strict diet for some weeks to avoid repetitions of the symptoms.

Therefore, my time on this week was scarce to do all what I was planned. I’m involved in several goals for the blog, technically and social speaking – I hope some of them will be live as soon as I can.

What specific topics would you like to read, explore or research on this blog in 2011? Let me know in comments!


The Best of the Week is a series of roundup-articles published every week, touching principally themes related to blogging, social media and food.
