New! Listen to this post and follow along! I'm trying out something new on this blog...audio posts to go along with the regular posts. So please leave me your thoughts and opinions on the subject. Do you like it? Do you not like it? How many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop? :P
BlogRush Has The Blues - And Yellows And Reds And Greens
BlogRush just announced today that they're adding several new color variations to the BlogRush widget. This addition is called "BlogRush Flavors" and it'll allow you to match your widget with the color scheme of your blog.
That's definitely a great improvement that I like very much! I just wonder if John Reese and the rest of the BlogRush team have been eating a lot of Skittles lately?! 'Cause with BlogRush Flavors I know I can certainly taste the rainbow!
More BlogRush Improvements To Come
BlogRush is also hard at work devising many new improvements that are all geared toward helping bloggers get more targeted traffic. In addition, BlugRush will also be adding a special bonus crediting system that'll give out certain bonuses to only the members who have low blog traffic since - they need the help the most.
I really like that idea as well. It's a nice way to share the love and help lower-traffic blogs gain new readers. I think this works well for several reasons. It'll give those who don't get a ton of traffic a nice boost, which should really get them excited about blogging. And it'll also give the rest of BlogRush members an opportunity to discover new blogs that they might never have happed upon. This may very well help launch some unknown blogs into popularity. And as we all know, every popular blog once started out as an itty bitty baby blog with no readers at all!
So far, I think BlogRush is doing a mighty fine job right out of the starting gate. And if they keep listening to the comments, concerns and suggestions from the BlogRush members, then I think they'll definitely become a staple in every blogger's diet. So if you haven't joined BlogRush yet, I suggest you hop on it!
