A few weeks ago I complained about Google Alerts being too elementary and not up to par with what companies need to stay on top of their branding game.  Apparently I did not dig deep enough into the power of what these alerts can do. With a little nudge from Rasheen, I found answers to […]

FriendFeed’s Participation Rate

4 months ago, I set out to try and determine how many of my followers on FriendFeed were lurking and how many were participating.  At that time, FriendFeed was still very small and I only had 100 or so followers.

Brand Management with Google Alerts

After reading Louis Gray’s post this evening on brand reputation managment, it made me wonder for the billionth time, why are Google Alerts so elementary?  For a company that specializes in search, I’d expect, at the very least, the following options be made available: Exclude domains from your alerts.  mybloglog.com is one of the domains […]

Photrade is Hanging in There

I’m a little late on this, but since I wrote about Photrade a few weeks ago, I thought I would follow up. Back on October 23, Photrade experienced some “growing pains” at which time they had a database go down on them.  They were able to get the site back up and running relatively quickly, […]

FriendFeed Goes on Steroids (aka Real-Time)

The Blogosphere is Mini-Hollywood…NOT!

I’ve seen a couple post recently on Louis Gray’s blog referring to the blogosphere as mini-Hollywood (both written by contributing authors) or, as in the most recent post, “Valleywood.” Now seriously, does anyone really care? Is anyone paying attention? I’m going to have to say no, except for those inside the blogosphere. The majority of […]

Is Selling Content the Future of the Blogosphere?

I just read a post Chris Brogan wrote titled “Selling Blog Content the Clean Way” in response to the way GigaOm Briefings is being run.  At the end of the article, Chris states, “How hard is it to make a post, and then make a LOT MORE for someone to buy and continue the experience? […]
