Favorite Linked Things

03 Aug 2010 | : About the Service, Connections, Entrepreneurial, Groups, Introductions, Jobs, Profiles, Recommendations, Search, Ways to Use LinkedIn


Here’s a bit of a tribute to LinkedIn for all my readers – I hope you enjoy it!

This thread will also help me start a number of postings over the next few weeks as I cover each of these favorite things – to explain them a little further.

Visiting this site for the first time?

If the video has brought you to The LinkedIn Personal Trainer for the very first time, a bit of an introduction is in order.

Hi – I’m steve!

And I wrote The LinkedIn Personal Trainer as a concise guide to getting started with LinkedIn – and sell it in both paperback and e-book formats.

This site is dedicated to exploring and using LinkedIn as an extension of that book.


I’ve written nearly 200 additional articles about new features, happenings in the LinkedIn world, and reader questions – and they’re all available to you through the “Archives”, “Categories”, and “Search” sections off in the header or right column.

Reader feedback

I’m always interested in the issues you face and looking for material for articles, so please don’t be a stranger. If you leave a comment, or send me a note, I’ll do my very best to respond quickly.

Like what you read?

And lastly, if you like what you’ve read here, please sign up for the email feed (or RSS if you prefer that) in the top right corner.

When you enter your email address, I’ll give you a short note whenever a new article is posted – so you don’t have to keep checking back.

The email will include the headline and first paragraph of the topic – and if you’re not interested, just delete it and move on.  If the topic is of interest, there will be a link to click over for the full article.

And spread the word

Perhaps the biggest thing you can do to help me, is to spread the word about this site. If you learned something here, recommend the to others.

As always, I remain committed to your continued success,


Steven Tylock
