B5 Media Streamlines Blog Reading

b5mediaWhere to Find B5 Media: http://www.b5media.com/
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!

Category: Blogging, Life

Rose DesRochers – World Outside My Window

Rose DesRochers is addicted to writing. That works out well for her, given her affinity for blogging and writing, or perhaps it is her addiction that is the benefit to her projects and her blog. In any case, Rose’s addiction is our gain, as this blog is her outlet, a little bit of everything all wrapped up in one blog.

Rose DesRochers World Outside My Window – Why You Should Go

Rose’s blog is just one of her online outlets, the others being the forum and community that she has built for other bloggers and writers, both excellent resources for learning and support. Her blog she describes as a collection of posts on

“…a variety of topics including odd news, technology, internet safety, child exploitation, blogging, and life in general…”

Here she writes about current events, daily life, and controversial subjects that pique her interest. Obviously the blog is a bit of a mix, which is a nice distraction from many of our blog reviews where the subject is ultra-focused; it’s a little bit of everything, a surprise every visit, and a great place to think and learn, and even find some great pointers for avoiding spammy con-artists.

Summing Up Rose DesRochers – World Outside My Window

Rose has lots if interests and lots to say on everything from environmental initiatives to creative writing. Stop in and see what you might share as a common interest, and join in the community that Rose has been building these past two years and more.

Fusing The Best Of The Blogosphere

When you talk about Blog Directories, one name comes to mind immediately–BlogCatalog.  Indeed, that is the place I find blogs more often than not these days.  But BlogCatalog is not the only Blog Directory on the Internet (even if it is, as they claim, among the biggest).  There are other directories out there, and they’re worth your time and perusal, too.

Blogging Fusion Offers Search And Tools

Blogging Fusion is another of the web’s directories.  It claims to be a growing community, with nearing 3,000 blogs.  That may pale into comparison to BlogCatalog, but still I’ve found some excellent blogs through Blogging Fusion.  It’s a resource to consider if you are looking for more exposure for your blog, or looking for new blogs for reading and comparison.

If you are interested in joining as a way to increase exposure to your blog, there is a fee to join, and then it takes between 12-48 hours to process and review your application and blog.  There are three tiers of payment for membership, starting at $1.99 USD.  One nice option about Blogging Fusion, though, is that you can insert your Adsense information and profit from ad clicks when your profile is viewed.

The other nice feature with Blogging Fusion is the statistics area.  It collects and displays the statistics for all the major search engines, which may be of interest both to you as a blog owner or to others who are searching niche blogs.

Whether or not Blogging Fusion grows to be a competitive force with the likes of BlogCatalog remains to be seen, but for a low submission price and the benefit of added exposure and stats, it’s probably worth your while to get in and see what this blog directory can do for you.

There are very few bloggers out there who have not heard how powerful social networking can be, and how important it is to those who are looking to grow their blog readership and capitalize n their blogging efforts. This post can be logged as something of a case in point.

Best Of Intentions

My intention in writing this post was to bring to light some of the strategies that I use for finding good blogs to review. Of course regulars know by now that one of my favorite ways is to hear from you, our readers, and to follow your leads and suggestions. All readers are always welcome to leave a comment on any blog review here at Digg It and point us to blogs worthy of reviewing. It would please me no end to have an overflow of reader submissions!

Alas, often times I do not, and I am left to my own devices. What to do then?

Finding Good Blogs On The ‘Net

In the past the first thing I would do would be to Google some random blog topic and dig through the results. That usually gets me somewhere, but it often takes a lot of time and searching through a few blog results before I come up with something worthwhile (which also means I have to sort the blog results from other random returns).

A bit more reliable strategy is to follow links to other blogs through blog rolls and blog posts. This usually gets me better results, because most bloggers have some standard of their own before they will post a link backed by their good name.

Most recently I have been using blog directories, most specifically BlogCatalog, to find good blogs. I still have to sift through and search for results, but the format makes that task much easier. For one, it seems that bloggers who bother with a service like BlogCatalog tend to be more serious and dedicated. Of course, this is not always the case, but the odds seem to be in my favor.

Secondly, the organization makes it simple to do that searching. All of the results actually are blogs, and they are all arranged conveniently by category and interest. You get a quick summary before you ever leave the site, so you have an idea of what you will find. I like to go direct to the BlogCatalog Directory page, and pick an avenue of interest, then proceed from there.

How Will Your Blog Be Found?

For bloggers, this is an important question to consider. Think about the power that these sites have over your blog, and what you can do to get in the eye of potential readers and subscribers. Think like a potential reader, and put yourself in the pathways that they might be using to find you.

Blogging With Success

Bloggers have an uncanny knack for coming up with names for their blogs that are so pointedly indicative of what they do, don’t they? In a world where people judge your worth in a matter of seconds, that’s a good thing. This blog is yet another example of a blog name that “says it all”; Blogging With Success is a blogging guide designed to help you start, manage, and take your blog to the highest possible levels, to see the best return on your blogging effort.

Blogging With Success – Why You Should Go

Blogging With Success is a fairly young blog, having been created in November of 2008, but it is very quickly proving its worth for bloggers (new or old). It is a blog full of tips, tricks, tutorials, and advice on every aspect of blogging, from design and promotion to connecting with the real-live people who read your blog. This is a team effort, currently with four bloggers contributing within their individual areas of blogging expertise and experience. This approach makes for a very well-rounded advice and tutorial blog, and offers insight for bloggers at all stages of the game, as the contributing writers are also all at different stages of blog growth. What’s even better is that the writing team hails from points around the globe (India, Indonesia, the USA, and the Philippines), so is representative of the true global nature of the blogosphere and the people participating in it.

“As a team of writers from various disciplines, we complement each other, providing greater coverage of blogging issues. Each contributor is in a different stage of their own blog’s life cycle. Located around the globe, they represent a cross-section of our readership.”

The blog is also a highly interactive place, very much in favor of action and participation, as noted on the About page and in the calls to action for comments and participation on the posts.

“Your time here will be well spent if you participate and contribute on more than a surface level. It’s a two way street. Get what you need from this blog and in return contribute so that others in the community can benefit from your success. We don’t want you ‘lurking’ around in some Google Reader. Ask your questions and share your skills right here in the city square.”

Summing Up Blogging With Success

Blogging With Success is a very well-designed blog in both form and function. New and “hot-topic” posts are easy to find with shortened versions and easy buttons for “more” and “comments” below each, so you can quickly click through to just the posts you are interested in. The diversity of the writers, their experiences, and their targeted, useful posts makes this blogging resource one that delivers more than most, putting real blogging tools in your hands, and then helping you learn how to use them. All in all, Blogging With Success delivers the goods and makes sure you know how to use them. This is a promising new blog packed full with great information already, with lots left to come.

Recap Reviews, February 7 Edition

The first week in February found some great blogs, and brought some excellent submission suggestions out of the woodwork!  Thank you to all of those who submitted a blog link for review, and please–keep them coming!  Tell your blogging friends!

Week In Review, February 7, 2009

As is the custom (at least I’m making it one), here’s a link to last week’s review in case you missed those great blogs: Week in Review, January 31, 2009.

Now, on to the latest and greatest….

  • Continuing a bit on the parenting theme that rose to the forefront last week, we had an excellent suggestion from one of our readers to review Dad’s Adventure.  This is the blog of American Greg Bishop, the creator of the well-known Boot Camp for New Dads.  There is a lot of excellent parenting advice, targetted primarily to men, but good for all, and a wealth of resources here for expecting and new Dads and parents of young children.
  • Our next review also came to us through a reader.  We were glad to be introduced to Lee Potts’ Breaking Murphy’s Law, a blog written by an expert in public presentation matters, designed to help you buck the odds and succeed wildly through education and preparation.
  • A third reader suggestion took us back to the motherland, to a blog offered for the purposes of supporting and connecting mothers to mothers.  It’s an always-on job, and one we’re glad to see 24/7 Moms helping out with.
  • For our last blog of the week, we took a walk on the tech side.  zMogo brought us their zMogo Tech Stuff blog, an information-packed blog and forum filled with additional resources and posts in gaming, SEO and web, design, gear and gadgets, and much more.

That wraps our week.  Hope you’ll all join us back here for another great week of blogs and reviews.  This week I had the good fortune of receiving some excellent blog suggestions; in fact, every blog reviewed this week came through reader submission.  All suggestions are greatly appreciated, and all you have to do is leave a comment below (or on any blog post at Digg It).

Recap Reviews, January 31 Edition

Not only does this week’s recap close out a week, it closes out an entire month–and an important month at that, being the first of the New Year.  Don’t worry, I’m not going to link back to the entire month’s worth of blog reviews, but I will link you out to our weekly review category so you can explore them yourself, all set up in four neat little packages.  And now, let’s take a look at what we dugg up (puns totally intended, jut for fun) this week at Do You Digg It.

Week In Review, January 31, 2009

  • Our first post of the week was not actually a review, it was a request for review suggestions.  We had readers wanting to know how to submit their favorite blogs, and so another blog submission post was in order.  Sean and I also figured it was time to make this official, so a submission page was added to the site so readers can always find out how to make a blog review request or suggestion.
  • The first actual review of the week was of Anthony’s What I See Out My Window blog, a unique community photoblog experience.  Don’t miss this global affair, a one-of-a-kind effort.  Maybe even head over and submit your own view!
  • Then it was on to Peter Aldin’s Freakedout Fathers blog, a unique experience all its own where Dads connect and support each other through the trials of children and family.  It’s a decidedly male perspective on parenting, but one that both men and women stand a lot to gain from.
  • Don’t let the next parenting blog’s pinkness throw you; Katy Lee’s Adventures in Parenting blog is a place for both Mothers and Fathers to share and learn from the trials and tribulations of a Mom with the benefit of experience four-times over.  Share the adventures and share the support with Katy.
  • FInally, we turned our attention to an issue all of us wish we had the luxury of ignoring, yet everyone is touched by; Marijke’s Cancer Commentary blog is supporting people touched by cancer in any way, while delivering the news from the field.

That concludes our week of posts, and now off to do some more digging.  Enjoy these blogs and be sure to check out last week’s recap review if you haven’t already and get the scoop on more great blogs!
