Web2.0 & Social Blogging Communities

Technorati favourites appears to have come and gone several times across the day as reported by aaron, I’m not surprised! It’s a bit like Google, when somebody finds a way to crack the algorithm and use it to their advantage, the goalposts are invariably changed.

Along with joining Bumpzee and creating my community for finding new blogs to read (which nobody has joined yet – so clearly nobody is reading this), I’ve joined MyBlogLog. I quite like seeing the faces on my blog of people who’ve come visiting – but are most of them drive-by’s? It would appear not – those that have visited from Bumpzee seem interested enough to comment, and as I said in a previous post – most of the time I’ve visited their blog and found something that interests me in return! So I’d say in answer to Mike I’m definitely a walk-in blogger (I also pull up a chair and have a look around while I’m there!).

I’m also quite interested in the benefits of these style of communities (aside from me finding something new to read over coffee in the morning!), so will be following Joe and Kevin’s blog with some interest. It certainly seems to have helped Manilla Mom with her seven blogs (how does she find the time!?!).

So for now you can find me on MyBlogLog and Bumpzee, why not come along and join the community for finding new blogs to read.

    You’re right, the faces in the sidebar add a nice personal touch.
    On the other side Bumpzee and Mybloglog are good ways to find interesting sites that one might not even notice otherwise.

    Glad you’re a walk-in blogger:-) Some of the best blogging friendships I’ve developed are from those found on MyBlogLog. I need to get started on BumpZee, for I’ve heard great things. And I gather both cookies exist at the same time. Stay contagious!

  3. I’m 2 days late in responding to your comment on my May 1 post. I guess that shows how little time I have left after juggling all the tasks on my blogs 🙂

    MyBlogLog has helped a lot in drawing readers to my blogs. Bumpzee I found much later, after I joined the DoFollow list. It has helped me find other dofollow blogs – another way to network and, at the same time, gain relevant links from comments you leave. All my blogs are, likewise, dofollow.

    MyBlogLog is wonderful in that it allows me to return the visits to my blogs, even to those visitors who do not leave comments.

    I’m sure you’ll find a lot of interesting blogs in these two communities, too.

    Hi All,

    Not many faces in mine 🙂 Not sure what I might be doing wrong to attract people!

    I’ve not really got into MyBlogLog yet, probably need to spend a little more time with it!

    @Maia Jose,
    It certainly sounds like you’re busy! I look forward to finding more blogs that interest me!

  5. […] I signed up for bumpzee, I created my own community, it was mainly to give me something new to read on a friday afternoon […]
