  • Hey Neil, thanks for including this in your October top 10! I’m glad my work was good enough for your audience!

    • Great post Will. Webgrowth is actually working on our own automation campaign (with Mailchimp). We found your post very relevant!

  • Didn’t know you were doing these roundups, Neil – found you through a WP pingback that came in almost 3 months after you published the post! Can’t ever rely on these things…

    • Hi Ana, we’ve been publishing these roundups only via email (since May) but not on our website. We decided last week to publish the content in the top 10 emails to our website and back date them to their respective month. So your WP pingback is working correctly 🙂

      • Ahhh… that makes sense! Are you planning on keeping them coming?

        • Yes, every month we’ll be publishing our favourite articles from the web 🙂
