Fame? Fortune? Get Listed in the 2000 Bloggers

Tino Buntic, known for his What Do Bloggers Look Like? project, announced his new project, 2000 Bloggers.

2000 bloggers

Top row: Spot the guy who traded the giant red paperclip for a house?

That’s me in the top row, 2nd from the right.
In Tino’s own words:

There are dozens of social networks that bring the blogosphere together, with Technorati and MyBlogLog being two of the biggest. I wanted to bring a whole bunch of bloggers together on one page. 2000 bloggers to be exact!

Lots of familiar faces among the 300 listed there.

2000 bloggers

Top row: 4th from the left, Jeremy Schoemaker (Shoemoney) holding his $132,997.94 check from Google

Bottom row: 3rd from the left, Kris Jones (Pepperjam), Jim Kukral (Blogkits) is right next to him

Also spotted in the mass of bloggers are:

and a host of others.

One thing I’ve noticed is that there’re quite a number of blogs hosted at WordPress.com and Blogspot.

If you’re a recreational blogger, I believe it’s ok to host it at a free site.

However, if you see yourself as a serious blogger/SEM/SEO, and you are building a brand and PageRank and backlinks to your blog, would you really want to host it at a free blogging service?

Granted, it’s free.

But if web hosting costs you $100 a year. Don’t you think your branding is worth at least 10 times that?

You could potentially (and I know of cases) of bloggers losing their free domains because of a violation of the terms of service (whether deliberate or inadvertedly), a perceived ‘excessive’ attempt at monetizing their blog, ‘excessive’ traffic coming to their blog.

I’d suggest two steps to “professionalize” your blogging efforts:

  • Get a domain name. NameCheap.com is my preferred domain registrar.
  • Get low cost, reliable host. I especially like BlueHost.
  • Go with a hosted WordPress blog. BlueHost provides a one-click idiot-proof install of WordPress through it’s comprehensive control panel.

It’ll enhance your blog longevity.

    2000 Bloggers-Idol meets Survivor with Apprentice: Vote some off the island!

    The @List Blogroll(It’s like a Z list, only different)

    Tino Buntic’s future is already here: It’s just not evenly distributed yet— Hotel @nyware’s Blogrolling Trend 2007 He selects, We elect. Get in touch with your inner Simon!

    Think American Idol meets Survivor with The Apprentice. Who gets voted off the island? Thumbs Up or Thumbs Down? Hired or fired? Do you Digg it? Use reality tv groundrules, and VOTE!

    Hotel @nyware is paying the 2000 bloggers off in social currency. This is an open source call out there to vet out the 2000 to Hotel @nyware’s new Z list of 150.

    Mass Collaboration Required. Rock the vote.

    Leave a comment here. Include your Starting Lineup from the 2000 blogs for Hotel @nyware’s blogroll.

    I’ll do the math and will post you(rs) to theBlogroll and start the epidemic! … and we all can leave them in hotel@nyware’s rooms Gideon style, pass them out at airports wireless hotspots and stuff like that.

    Here are my top six:

    Frank Gruber for turning me on to the project. Andrew Wee Mr Uber Social Traffic Generator for spreading the 2000 Bloggers thought virus. Tino, the linkbait benefactor for coming up with this.Seth Godin, Write? Right! and he shaves his head C. B. Whittemore’s a role model for the corporate casual rules of never doing evil and Tom Peter’s junkie.

    Hi friend. My partner and i actually love the post along with the internet site all in all! That posting is really plainly composed as well as easily understandable. Your WP design is impressive as well! Would be great to know where I can get this. If possible keep up the excellent work. We require more these web owners just like you on the net and much fewer spammers. Wonderful mate!
