Couple of finds to help promote your blog

Zimbio  announced the introduction of Linked Blogs, a feature that allows members to post their personal blog entries on the Zimbio network. For each entry, Zimbio includes a link back to the original article to help market the member’s weblog to a larger audience.

“Part of the mission of Zimbio is to help members find not only great content about a specific topic, but also great people who are passionate enthusiasts or experts about that topic.  Many of our experts and enthusiasts on Zimbio are active bloggers who maintain a personal blog on Blogger, WordPress, TypePad, LiveJournal, Windows Live Spaces, or other blogging platforms,” said Danny Khatib, one of Zimbio’s founders.  “Now with Linked Blogs, our members can easily promote their best blog entries on Zimbio.”

I like this one, it imports the first few of your articles to get you started, and after that you can import your posts as you make them and link them to other articles on other blogs that have similar content, thus getting more exposure. Also you can add articles to Zimbio plus some other goodies. Since it imported my link list of all your blogs on the post about tagging you are all being promoted too, and the other members of Zimbio have access to your blog, so that is a bonus for us all.  Have a look for yourself Good Blogging Practice

Multiply makes it easy to create, share and discuss your blog, photos, videos and music with more of the people you know, and less of the people you don’t.  This imports from LiveJournal, Blogger, Xanga, Typepad or LiveSpaces so has most covered but does not import WordPress posts. However you can link to your blog in your welcome message, however I think it is a little more difficult to make contact here. I haven’t spent too much time on this but check out my site, hopefully it will bring in more readers for this blog.

  1. Hi!

    This is a very nice find. We sure will register. Thanks for sharing and Merry Christmas to all CaribooPonderer regulars. 😀

  2. That seems pretty interesting. I think I’ll give it a try as well.

    ————————————————— – a great place to waste time, or not!

  3. I’ll have to check that out. Thanks for the tip. :o)

  4. Thanks for these finds. I’ll check them out later.

    You can also try BloggingZoom… this is similar to Zimbio.

  5. I signed up for Multiply, as you know – because I read it here. When I read the part about unlimited storage for whatever I want to do, I figured it couldn’t hurt. I imported my pictures from Flickr, and that was pretty quick and painless. I haven’t tried blogs yet or figured out how to connect with people – without sending a mass email to everyone in my address book. I hate it when sites want to do that.
