This will be the last Bloggers Digest of 2007, (although it feels like we just got started). There’s no shortage of “Top [Insert Topic Here] Blog Posts of 2007” in the blogosphere – and even some roundups of the Top Top Lists! So this week I’m posting my favorite 2007-roundups (wearing my ecommerce marketer hat of course!) and a couple other interesting posts to chew on for the weekend.
My Favorite Top Post Roundups of 2007:
- TwistImage called on some big names to contribute their favorite short videos of the year. Entertaining!
- Lee Odden from TopRankBlog recaps the best of his blog this year.
- Shana Albert from SocialDesire provides a killer list of 51 social media marketing posts from Twitter to Stumbleupon and much in between.
- Techipedia must have one heckuva feed reader to compile this enormous list of social media marketing artilces.
- GrokDotCom provides a month-by-month recap of great content with This Year in Blogs – The Definitive Marketing Posts of 2007 – someone planned ahead!

- Okay, this was written in July and is technically not a roundup of posts, but Matt from EcommerceOptimization provides a list of ecommerce blogs that we all can enjoy.
Other notables this week:
- Still stumped by what RSS is and what it can do for you? This is a Really Simple Summary of RSS to help you out.

. Both interesting reads.
