any good resources out there on best practices starting a community around your website?

Kathy Sierra's book/talk about making users BadAss -- isn't about community as much as it is about users, but it's got some gems.

This is EXACTLY what I was looking for. Thanks so much

Seth Godin also has some really great books on tribe building.

This is an entire collection of resources to help you do exactly that.…

I saw some good stuff here:…

Crushing It!: How Great Entrepreneurs Build Their Business and Influence-and How You Can, Too

And yes, Seth Godin about "Tribes", but for me advise from Gary Vaynerchuk was more actionable.
