Face Bigelow #60 - Big Blogger

I'm probably going to annoy a lot of people, but at the same time they get a link back to their blogs which increases their authority. Sense of humor people, sense of humor.

This comes from my last few days of trying to show other bloggers that my news related webcomics are related to their own news postings and thereby increase traffic. Hey, everyone wants to be heard... I've done some searches for topics similar to my last few webcomics, then added comments to those other blogs. In the process I've come across a lot of blogs that are simply cut and pasting of articles and video and don't seem to have any added value. It's nice that they extract out the news that interests them, but I think they can add a little value and type three works or grunt like a caveman or something. Not to also insult cave men...

Here are a half dozen blogs like the ones in my webcomic:
Blue Collar Republican
Fergie's Tech Blog
All Points Blog
Peter O'Kelly's Reality Check
eHome Upgrade
Swimming Free Style
Fun With My Ira

I purposefully chose ones with low authority (and miscounted to keep you guessing) on technorati so this should help your ratings and maybe give a little reason to add some value. At least Peter O'Kelly added a single word and Conglomerate actually had an entire sentence and a half.

Big: I'm a blogger.
Big: I create an entry by simply copying articles into my blog.
Big: I don't even add a comment. It makes my blogging so easy I barely have to lift a finger.
Big: In fact, I don't even have to think!
Victor: My thoughts exactly.

I'm not clear on your point -- I've never promoted my blog or suggested it's anything other than a news filter, and I frankly don't care much about my ratings on Technorati or anyplace else. Many people have told me they find my blog useful; that's enough incentive for me...
