Blog Explosion

I thought I'd have a go at this blog explosion lark. Loads of people are doing it now, & I'm never one to not follow the crowd:-)

This is the thingy that lets people "rent" your blog (put a picture link on your sidebar), and you earn credits by looking at other blog explosion blogs, so it increases your site traffic & hopefully some of them will like what they see & come back on their own!



You can click on the link above for more info. I'm off to check it out in a bit more depth now.

    That's the way to do things, Mrs. A. I really like Blog Explosion--and since you and your husband are into computer games, playing Battle of the Blogs is a natural.

    Michele sent me to see you--though I thought I was going to visit Lisa M. Michele's can be confusing that way!

    I still can't get my head wrapped around this whole BE thing. I'd LIKE to bump my traffic levels, but I'm not about to start investing hours every day in learning the BE "secrets". It all seems too Byzantine for my simplistic mind.

    Sigh...

    I'm wary of blog-renting - although a lot of my regular haunts do it....

    You turning into a Blog ho, Mrs A ;-)

    I've always been a blog Ho CQ:-) STILL never been Teh Blogfathers site of the day tho:-( Or Muchele's:-( Crying into my keyboard now.....

    Utenzi - you'll be pleased to know I referred myself through you

    I have clicked on a few rent my blog icons, so I guess it does work. I'll have to get some credits somehow first though, so if you're going to join up, please do so through my link:-)))

    Hope you find someone fun to rent your blog. I've never tried it, but I've seen plenty of blogs that do it.

    Michele sent me.

    I'll have a stern word with Teh Blogfather....although I know his connection is a bit hit and miss atm - as I understand it he is blogging from an internet cafe! :-(

    I've not been Michele's blog of the day either [shares tissue]

    I've never figured out BE...I've looked at their main page but I've never been really sure what to do with it...

    Here via Michele's..might go back to BE and try to figure it out.

    I do BE a bit, but as carmi said, never invested much time in it. Michele sent me, too!

    I spent a bunch of time at BE when I first started blogging. It's a great way to meet bloggers that are outside of our "circle" of friends. Good luck! Michele sent me today. Hope you are having a great weekend!

    HI! Michele sent me!

    I actually met one of my favorite Blog Buddies through Blog Explosion! He had this banner that basically said "Please click this banner and give a guy SOME traffic!"

    Cheers,
    And Happy Holidays!

    I use BE...if you've got the time to surf regularly you can generate a good bit of traffic.
    I also started renting out my blog~I do enjoy sharin' the love! :)

    Hello, Michele sent me!

    hi mrs. a! i am on be too. don't really have the time to earn credits. i do renting out to to other bloggers, though. it's a cool way to let people know about them. :)

    i have a blog explosion button on my sidebar, and i used to be a regular there. i lost tons of battle of the blogs, which always made me kind of sad. especially when i would lose to ones i thought sucked. i guess the reason i am not a big blog explosion fan is that it takes a lot of time, and so many of the users there just click off as soon as they can without paying attention to your blog, its just a number builder. but thats just me. i did find some interesting sites thru them!

    I'm on the fence about the whole blog explosion thingy, myself.First off, I wouldn't know how or where to put that thing on my blog...yet (Mr. A sent me VERY very good directions, but there is a discrepency between the code he printed out and what's in my HTML...so, I haven't been able to ge anywhere, yet....but, meanwhile...)
    And the other thing is: I am kind of overwhelmed with all the blogs I visit now..and I don't think I can add anymore to what I'm already doing and still have a life away from the computer!! (lol)..But seriously....it's a twofold problem...I'll be very interested to see if you do this...I'm just not up to all of it, you know?
    And like you, I don't always go with the crowd...Have to find my own way, I guess....You Too???
