The veteran Internet Marketer known as John Reese has recently launched BlogRush, a blog-specific web2.0 widget which syndicates blog publicity across it’s network. It’s raised some debate among a number of bloggers and more importantly, how effective is it?
The idea is that each BlogRush widget displayed earns you a syndication credit, which in turn earns you a reciprocal ‘widget view’ on another blog within your category. As far as I’m aware, traffic is NOT guaranteed. You’d still need to put some effort to come up with a great headline and quality content.
What’s blogging maestro Jim Kukral’s bone of contention with BlogRush? Read: Don’t Waste Time With BlogRush, It Won’t Work.
Jim’s point about low traffic blogs not benefitting from the network (which functions as a type of exchange) is certainly valid (and likely not to get much traffic)…Unless (more…)
I first got to know of Laura Alter from PlanetAndrea (aka Andrea Schoemaker).
Laura attended the inaugural Elite Retreat and has been very successful in her brick-and-mortar computer business and is also owner of the popular NotebookForums site too.
Besides having 3 sweet kids (her 5 year old plays a mean game of warcraft), she’s pretty tech savvy.
Check out her blog:

When Paul Scrivens whispers, the blogging community takes notice.
Here’s a post from a 9rules Notes thread about 9rules Round 6 from the 9rules Head Honcho himself:
Round 6 has the “potential” to occur in April-May or maybe even March. Voting for this contest is open only to 9rules Members and will take place in the private forums.

I didn’t realize a meme might be this fun.
Quite a number of my 9rules compatriots have taken part in the meme project and we have a nice discussion going on on Michael’s blog.
Read the post to find out why you might be seeing “a lot of dead blogs” in June. And whether you agree or disagree, leave a comment on the post.
Michael is a community leader for the 9rules Anime Community and knows just about everything when it comes to Japanese Animation. Michael is pretty ace when it comes to blogging and swung for the fences in coming up with his post.
Is all well in technorati-land? Check out Michael’s post and take note of the conversation in the comments. (more…)
Every week, yet another journalist or online marketer predicts the Death of Blogging. Ironicially, sometimes these ‘predictions’ are made by bloggers.
Far from dying, there’s a resurgence in blogging, judging by the flow of private equity and growth of blog networks.
Just look at the nearly 1,200 submissions for the Round 5 submissions for the 9rules Blog Network or check the stats at the Blog Network List. Darren Rowse’s b5media blog network got a nice chunk of capital funding too.
2007 will see a further evolution of blogging as we know it.
Perhaps ‘blogging’ (a truncation of weblog) may evolve as a term to fully encompass what it represents.
Here’re 4 trends I see this year.
- Offline to Online Content Migration
Even without Amazon and Google’s efforts to digitize content for the Internet, a multitude of content publishers (more…)

2006 was an interesting time for me as I plunged into Internet Marketing.
Although I didn’t have a clear idea in the beginning, it was very clear that the path of least resistance would be to go with blogging.
In the course of the last 5 months, I’ve had a series of interesting experiences and the questions I’ve dealt with appear to be common with all new bloggers, whether the questions originate from a blog, a forum, a blog network or a social networking site.
Here’s 2006 in retrospective in a FAQ format with money making tips and 7 Reality Checks for bloggers and internet marketers.
- Blogging Reality Check 1: Making Money from Blogging is Evil
I’m not sure of the intent of this often heard objection.
I guess some might have ‘pure/purist intentions’ and expect that blogging is some form of ‘cathartic release’ for heavy/philosophical/ponderous thinking.
I see blogging as a form of personal journalism. And (more…)
