There is a good reason I include a quote from Dane Morgan on my about page. It is not just because it was complementary, but because I know he is a very smart cookie, that has been around the block a few times with all kinds of affiliate marketing. He is vastly more experienced than I am.
I hate to say it guys, but all these wishy washy wish lists that appeared today really don’t give MyBlogLog the credit they truly deserve, or really explore the potential of MyBlogLog. Andy Beal has a few useful ideas. Shoemoney also has a list, but I am not going to link to him as he prefers invective to cover up his spamming activities. In fact Shoemoney’s list seems to be an attempt to control the problems his community marketing tactics initially encouraged.
John Wesley over at Pick the Brain really is “getting smarter every day”.
He had a great article, he submitted it himself, and it flopped on Digg.
Doesn’t that happen to us all? Multiple Times?
I use Google for a lot of searching every day, I am sure more than 95% of casual users. I am not talking about checking ranking, as things like that can be automated with Google’s APis and various tools. When I need to find information, I use Google Search.
I have seen Google suggest other related terms to try such as this, which appears at the bottom of a page when I search for “insurance”.
The Google Related terms normally look something like this:-
Family Relationship Disaster
That is the message that filtered back to to me via my mother-in-law to my wife and then finally to me, 3 weeks later.
I Was Stunned
My father-in-law had been casually thinking about putting all his old family videos on SVHS onto DVD for a number of years. One tape had been professionally processed, but he didn’t like the charges, wasn’t happy with the final results, and didn’t understand the time required to edit video into something presentable.
I am mentioning MyBlogLog a lot these days, but there are reasons for this
- A large proportion of my readership are using it.
- A large number are still not using it (they are missing out)
I love how his blog post ends
If Yahoo/MyBlogLog is reading this, these tools would be great to implement as a part MyBlogLog. All we ask is for 1% of your acquisition price or a free trip to Yahoo headquarters.
There are lots of memes going around, none with an emphasis on social networking, and in particular MyBlogLog. There are lots of people looking to expand their MyBlogLog communities, so this idea has a chance to take off.
