I Will Send You Tweets of DoFollow Blogs

I will be sending Twitter Tweets of blogs in the Followlist.com DoFollow Blog directory that I have verified to be DoFollow. This is good news for you if you are looking for DoFollow blogs to comment on.

I have made another change to the Followlist.com DoFollow Blog Directory.

I will be sending Twitter Tweets of blogs in the directory that I have verified to be DoFollow.

This is good news for you if you are looking for DoFollow blogs to comment on.

Unfortunately, some blogs in the DoFollow list are actually nofollow blogs. In order to cleanup the directory and weed out dead blogs and nofollow blogs, I have asked users to report those blogs as they come across them.

In addition, I am randomly reviewing blogs in the directory a number of times a day. As I come across valid dofollow blogs, I will tweet you about them. If they are not dofollow, I will be suspending them.

So, when you follow my Twitter Tweets, you will know that blogs mentioned in those tweets have been verified as being dofollow.

If you have a blog in the DoFollow Blog Directory that has been verified to be a dofollow blog, I will be tweeting your blog.

Initially, I thought about tweeting new blogs as they were submitted to the Followlist.com dofollow blog list, but that would not have been fair to those who have been a member of the list for some time.

So, I will be randomly choosing blogs throughout the day that are dofollow and are family appropriate. All dofollow blogs will be tweeted about once, until all are done, and then I will start the process again.

So, follow me at http://twitter.com/dofollowblogs and keep a look out for your blog.

By the way, if you discover that your blog is no longer in the directory, it is probably because it was tagged as a nofollow blog. The database still contains your blog information, and your blog can be added back into the dofollow list if you make your blog dofollow. Just contact me at my Helpdesk and let me know your blog is now dofollow and provide me with your blog link. If I verify that your blog is dofollow, I will add it back into the directory.

Blogging is Dead

Did you hear the news? Blogging is dead! The revelation that blogging is so 2004 and not worth doing any longer was sure news to me.

Did you hear the news?  Blogging is dead!

The revelation that blogging is so 2004 and not worth doing any longer was sure news to me.

Paul Boutin over at Wired.com States “Thinking about launching your own blog? Here’s some friendly advice: Don’t. And if you’ve already got one, pull the plug.”

Paul is right, that the top blogs on Tecnorati are no longer the personal blogs written by the individual, they are now the blogs of corporations and political heavy weights.  The small time blogger like you and I no longer have a chance to reach the top of the blog directories.

So you need to stop blogging today.  Do you hear me?  Everyone stop blogging – please.

According to the above article, some bloggers are moving over to Twitter and Facebook.  Yes, Twitter and Facebook are great services and I think all blog owners should use those services and just stop blogging – blogging is just a waste of time.

There are just too many blogs today, too much competition to make it worth while.

I guess the ease of use of blogging platforms, like WordPress, has doomed all of us in the blogging world.  Now virtually anyone, without technical expertise can blog, and blogging is no longer the darling of the technically skilled.

The blogosphere has created it’s own demise since it is so easy to do, and there are so many people teaching others how to blog.

With the millions of blogs out there, how will your blog ever get noticed?  It won’t – so stop already, pull the plug, go Twitter everyone and let them know you will be using Twitter to communicate with them, because you are pulling the plug on your blog.

Let’s start a “pull the plug on your blog” movement, and spread the word to everyone we know.

Wait a minute….what are you doing here?  How come you are reading this?  Don’t you know blogs are dead?

Seriously, even though it has become tougher to compete in the blogging arena, there are still plenty of benefits to blogging.  The internet is still all about content, and blogs are content.  Plus, the search engines still love blogs and content and always will.

If some find blogging no longer worth doing, and turn off their blogs, great – that just leaves more potential visitors to our blogs.

The real key to blogging today, is to find niches to blog about.

For example, if you try to get traffic to a general political blog today, you will have a hard time competing with the big boys.  But, if you decided to blog about something like politics from a Christian’s prospective, or from a lawyer’s perspective, or an internet marketer’s perspective, you should be able to find an audience.

Blogging is dead – NOT!  It’s just like everything else on the internet, you just need to adapt to the times and competition.

Blog on!
