It was a real and rare pleasure being involved in this - thanks to Gini for including me. One thing is very clear; the Spin Sucks community is amazing and testament to the hard work and dedication Gini has put in over the years. The book is truly brilliant and I stand by every word of my 5-star review - it is set to sell a lot of copies in the coming months, and I'll continue to do what I can to help.

 @schmittastic  @TheRealSJR Thanks Amy. I also use Compfight on the odd occasion. It helps find Creative Commons pics from Flickr, and even gives you the credit code in HTML to save you finding the author's profile page. I stick the credit on the end of the post when I use one of those images, but otherwise all the images on the site come from 123rf. :)

My favourite is 123rf.com. They have thousands of free images and just ask you to add a link to your site, which is easily done. I put a blanket credit link in the footer of my site and then just use their images everywhere - check http://usfitties.com to see what I mean.

I wish Social Media Week was the first week of October instead, as that's when I'm over in TO next. I'll just have to keep an eye on events online as usual... ;)

 @Deidre Drewes Ha! Deal... although I suspect Twitter might not be the best tool for the job. DM me anyway... :)

 @Deidre Drewes  @RicDragon Sounds reasonable to me. I'd personally love to know the areas Radian6 falls down on. I'm looking at that product right now with great interest, so any thoughts would be much appreciated.

 

Journalistic balance sounds good - make sure you keep your core tight when you do it. #fitnessjoke

Hi Deidre!

 

Nice work - very comprehensive indeed. Despite mentioning them, I was interested that you didn't include Radian6 in the spreadsheet. What the reason behind that?

 @JohnJamesKaiser Nothing wrong with a little butter. Certainly a lot better than ANY of the (so called) healthy spread alternatives. Some good fat facts in this article, which focuses on EFAs etc. http://usfitties.com/nutrition/fat-enemy-five-fat-facts/

I don't mind a queue where it is sensible to do so. Starbucks, for example - I'd hate it if I'd been there 5 minutes waiting in line for someone to walk through the door and leave before me with a drink. First come, first served works well here.

But otherwise, I tend to avoid queues. As I've gotten older, I've become less tolerant of them. I wait for the day when I'm so old that I can just jump the queue and nobody will say a word. OAPs can get away with murder when it comes to queues. ;)
