B5 Media Streamlines Blog Reading

Category: Blog Networks

B5 Media has a reputation as being a fun and informative blog network, hosting hundreds of top-quality blogs. We’ve reviewed this blog network for precisely this reason before. Many B5 Media blogs stand as primary blog resources in their particular fields. With growth, however, often comes growing pains. B5′s popularity resulted in a large and still growing network that became somewhat un-navigable. Until now.

B5 Media Branches Out And Reorganizes Content

“With over 300 successful and diverse blogs in their network, and hundreds of talented writers, b5media saw an opportunity to deliver a more well-rounded experience to their readership by showcasing content from across the network streamlined by topic and presented in this simple and efficient way.”

Don’t worry—all the great B5 Media blogs that you’ve come to know and love are still there, but now they have been arranged into four dedicated websites which better target reader interests. The four main categories under which the B5 media blogs reside are:

• Men’s Lifestyles (everyjoe.com)
• Women’s Lifestyles (blisstree.com)
• Fashion and Beauty (splendicity.com)
• Business (bizzia.com)

About the sites:

“Blisstree covers everything from parenting tips, cooking gadgets and recipes and eco-friendly advice, to party planning, dating tips and healthy dieting guides. Splendicity is about fashion, beauty and accessories – showcasing the best and worst in celebrity fashion, the hottest new beauty and skin care products, and the latest style trends. Bizzia features valued insights from bloggers along with exclusive interviews and reviews, timely business information, insights, and news. EveryJoe is the ultimate boys club. From tech tips and gaming tricks, to the latest sports news and entertainment buzz, EveryJoe delivers non-stop action to men on the go.”

The result is an even more inviting set of collaborative sites that make it easier for you to find the types of blogs that interest you, saving you your precious time and getting you to the goods faster. Kudos to B5 for continuing to deliver great content, and for understanding what benefits readers before we did!

My Diving Life

Sean Rasmussen is in Port Vila, Vanuatu sharing his love of scuba diving with his boys and blogging about some excellent local Vanuatu scuba diving professionals. In that spirit, I thought maybe we’d look up some scuba diving blogs for review; after all, when it comes to diving, the pics alone are always worth the visit! What I found was a number of great scuba diving blogs, and an entire community dedicated to the sport.

My Diving Life – Why You Should Go

My Diving Life is an entire blog network dedicated to scuba diving and diving enthusiasts. It’s dubbed as “The Divers Blog Community” and is home to a number of great scuba blogs from all over the world. The network offers other resources as well, including a job board for scuba divers and related professions.

Summing Up My Diving Life

My Diving Life is a great network to explore for dive enthusiasts, but also for those of us (and that’s me!) who’ve never had the pleasure. The pictures, stories, and information are top-rate, and there are plenty of diving blogs to choose from on this community blog network.

Blog URL: http://www.traderplanet.com/index.php
Category: Investing, Trading, Blog Networks

Trader Planet

Trader Planet is our second highlighted blog network; but Trader Planet (which happens to be home to the Trading Advice Blog) is more than a blog network, it is an entire online social network dedicated to trading and investing. It is a growing community of traders from all walks of investing life, built with the purpose of educating others to the reality and possibility of the world’s trade markets.

Trader Planet – Why You Should Go

Trader Planet is a well-designed site with a clear purpose and intention as an “…online community that is dedicated to teaching individuals how to trade world markets.”

They explain their mission in this way:

“Understanding stock trading is an intense and lifelong process – Experienced and successful traders often spend their entire careers learning about the market. No matter how successful those traders may become, there is always more to learn and new opportunities to take advantage of. The information available to you, as a beginning trader, can be daunting and confusing, with many beginning stock and commodities traders giving up without ever really trying to master the art. However, if you take the time to pour through that information and apply what is learning from the most credible sources, you can significantly increase the odds of making money by trading the world’s markets. TraderPlanet.com’s objective is to make the learning process a little easier.”

Summing Up Trader Planet

Trader Planet offers a wealth of information for new and seasoned traders alike. It also has a number of ready resources. A welcoming community for all with an interest in trading, the network shows its dedication to the greater good not only through its information sharing, but also through its featured Charity of the Month. Give Trader Planet a try if you’ve an interest in investment blogging, or if you are looking for new resources for your own personal trading use.

Which Blog Networks Lead The Way?

One thing I’ve learned after a hundred forty + blog reviews is that many come from leading blog networks. Not all, of course, there are just as many that are privately hosted or hosted on WordPress or BlogSpot or another platform of choice. Nevertheless, it is helpful to know that there are some reliable places to look for new blogs to follow, and blog networks capable of delivering.

Who Do You Love?

Just as we all have our favorite blogs, many of us probably have favored blog networks, too. I know certain ones emerge time and again as I scour the internet for new blogs to review. I’ll be highlighting these blog networks from time to time and reviewing them alongside our Digg It blog reviews. As always, though, our readers have a voice, too, so please do tell—what is your favorite blog network? What network consistently delivers great blogs again and again? Which network do you feel is a reliable place to go whenever you feel the need to locate new blogs?

And please, also tell a bit about why you feel the way you do. What makes this network so great? Are they a niche site? Is it something about their management or purpose?

All comments and recommendations are deeply appreciated. The comments are open and waiting below.
