Twitter Link Roundup #198 – Small Business, Startups, Innovation, Social Media, Design, Marketing and More Ross | October 4th, 2013

boardad

Every day on the crowdSPRING Twitter account and on my own Twitter account, I post links to posts or videos I enjoyed reading or viewing. These posts and videos are about logo design, web design, startups, entrepreneurship, small business, leadership, social media, marketing, and more! Here are some of the links that I’ve liked and shared this past week!

The image above is a chalkboard ad from a cheese shop in the United Kingdom. It was clearly created by someone with a great sense of humor.
