Not that I’m claiming Notes from the Trail had anything to do with any of this, but consider the following:
? ServantBlog was the first featured “Off the Path” link here at Notes. A week later, it was awarded membership into the 9rules network.
? TypepadHacks was the 2nd featured OTP link, and shortly thereafter was listed on Typepad’s homepage as a featured blog.
Now, with all that being said, I’m recognizing Steve Rubel’s excellent blog: Micro Persuasion as the 3rd OTP link. It’s a wonderful wealth of informatio and resource for bloggers, design hackers, and webheads. Thanks to Steve for great work being done!
