There’s a lot that’s been going on here at Super Blogging lately (and still a lot more planned), as well as elsewhere around the blogosphere. So I thought I’d fill you in, just in case anything has been missed.

First off, there has recently been a Super Blogging group writing project underway where you can submit up to three of your articles that relate to blogging in some way. Then, I will take all of the quality articles and link to them in a resource that’ll be helpful for all bloggers – which also helps you by getting a free backlink and traffic. The group writing project’s deadline was yesterday, January 22, but if you’ve written an exceptional article that you think would help others that read the resource, you can still submit it to be considered until the resource itself is published.

The second thing going on here at this moment is actually quite an important question – what is your favorite social media site? I am quite interested in what sites other bloggers use to promote the content they write or enjoy, or how interesting content is found. After all, we all have different opinions. So share those well thought out opinions, because I will take my favorite comment and link to the author’s site.

There are also a couple other things I am planning for Super Blogging sometime in the near future, so if you don’t want to miss out please subscribe to the RSS feed via a reader or through email, so you’ll always be updated.

But there are even more exciting things going on in the blogosphere! If you haven’t heard of Caroline Middlebrook’s free eBook yet, titled How to Develop Money-Making Niche Sites with WordPress, you’re definitely losing out on some great information. This eBook shows you how to use WordPress, create your niche site, and how to make money online with it. Caroline is a popular blogger and has worked extremely hard making this eBook fit top quality standards, so if you don’t have your copy of this gem yet, I’d suggest you download it now.

Last but not least, check out MeAndMyDrum’s redesign. Mark’s blog is one of my favorites, and now he’s made it look spectacular using one of the Revolution WordPress themes designed by Brian Gardner, with plenty of extra tweaking. I have to say that this theme makes me pretty jealous. Congratulations to you Mark for your redesign, it looks fantastic!

I hope you all have a fantastic day – if you need a bit more to read, check out Super Blogging’s top posts, or Caroline’s or Mark’s blogs that were mentioned above. :)

    I read Caroline Middlebrook’s free eBook and found it pretty useless… unless you’re a very basic blogger I can’t see it being a ton of use to peole

    I know you probably would want this answer on your other post, but you’re getting it here! As of right now, I don’t really use any social networking sites and I think I should start. It’s just that everyone I start using just gives me so much more to do everyday ya know?

    @Mark,

    Thank you very much! I suppose it’s odd timing, but I actually just won a new theme as well! :)

    @Stock Market Software,

    Of course the eBook isn’t good for any expert on the topic, but I am definitely going to direct some WordPress beginners to it – free is free, and Caroline’s eBook is still great quality.

    @Bush Mackel,

    I’m a part of many social media sites, and they don’t take up any extra time on my part. Like for StumbleUpon, I’ve already built up a community with some friends there who stumble my content, and I don’t have to do a thing – and when I find a post or article I like, all it takes is a click of my mouse to stumble it from my toolbar. Social media is one of the most powerful things in blogging, and I think you’re definitely missing out if you don’t put it to use! If you need any help with it, just let me know! :)

    Hey, that’s pretty cool! What theme did you choose?

    Mark, I actually haven’t chosen yet. I am still reviewing my options, as it is a pretty tough decision to make. I do think my favorite is the Revolution News theme, like you chose. What do you think?

  7. Mark on January 24th, 2008 10:39 pm

    Good choice! I’m guessing that all his themes will share some of the things I’ve found while implementing the News theme. I’d be happy to share them with you. I plan on writing a post about it, but I’ll email you some tips. ;)
