Blog Bloke has come up with a nice twist on blog networking on his site. He really has taken it right back to basics. Forget bandwidth hogging widgets – simply publish your own list of sites which, in BBs own words, you “intend to support” by being an active member.
Blog networking is a great way of creating an online community and driving focused traffic to your blog. MyBlogLog does this to a degree but my feeling is that it’s now become so egocentric that people are simply checking out hundreds of sites every day just in the hope of a random click back.
I’ll get round to publishing my blog network (and my updated sidebar) shortly once “real life” has stopped getting in the way. In the meanwhile, what ideas have you got for blog networking?
