  46. For #9 – 101 freebies – you really should link to the actual source article at businessweek

  47. […] Best 101 Lists by Pearl […]

  48. Hey Pearl,
    Just wanted to let you know that I’ve received a good bit of traffic the last few days from this post and I’m sure the others have as well.

  49. Hey Steven, Im going thru the stats as we speak, and its amazing graph and the numbers are really crazy! Im really glad everyone gained from it :) thanks for letting me know, feels good to know!

  50. So many lists. So little time. I took the liberty of trying to find out which was the most popular outgoing link, just to see which topic people were interested in the most. As of the moment, 101 Best Web Freebies is number one followed by 101 Space Facts. It’s interesting because they weren’t the top 2 links I would have expected. :)

  51. Hi Jen_Chan.. I did that too and noticed the same results this afternoon and was surprised with the way it looks… Im not sure if this is a good measure though! Glad you are enjoying these :)

  60. […] Best 101 Lists by Pearl This is a list of 40-something lists of 101 things. One even leads to a list of 1001 lists, and I’m sure many of the others also have links as part of their 101 listing.

    How did you ever find so many 101 lists? I especially like Skellie’s 101 Essential Blogging Skills – it is a good list to review when I need a little extra motivation!

  65. Hey Neena… good to see you here…

    I had a lot of these bookmarked in my delicious account, some in google and firefox favorites, so thought of collecting them in one place and sharing ..

    Skellie is a Pro of course :)

  66. How long have you been gathering those “gems”? I am fond of really useful sites, but your collection is impressive. My vote for it.

  67. thank you Xoel!! Oh, I don’t even remember… but I do have some really neat bookmarks that I’ll be spilling out slowly ;)

  96. Now I won’t get any work done today, thanks for these lists ! :)

  97. Thanks for the nice list! Now I will give back some nice quotes:

    Love the moment. Flowers grow out of dark moments. Therefore, each moment is vital. It affects the whole. Life is a succession of such moments and to live each, is to succeed.

    Love doesn’t make the world go ’round; love is what makes the ride worthwhile.

    Life resembles a novel more often than novels resemble life.

  98. Great. It’ll take me a while to go through all of these. Thanks.

  99. Do you know why I like lists? Because instead of bookmarking 100 pages I can bookmark one :) I even saved a copy on my hd of this one so I don’t loose the list if you ever go offline :) Thanks
