Blog Aggregation – Getting it right?

The adventures in blogging continue.  Blogging and aggregation is a hot topic in St. Louis lately.  If you blog, you’ve dealt with the up and downsides of it.  If your blog has RSS, there’s a good chance someone is aggregating it.  Maybe that happens inside an RSS reader, but it can also happen at a blog aggregator site.

What’s the harm? Those sites can be both helpful and harmful. Some aggregators capture the entire content of the RSS feed and redisplay it on the site.  Kinder ones showcase the blog feed with human designed setups.

What can you do to get it right? Create your own aggregator of course!

Some of us bloggers are getting together, forming a project to talk about making a better aggregator.  I can’t give up the site yet. It’s still very bare bones.  Currently a team is being assembled.

It’s stirring up in St. Louis. Here’s a little background for that too.

What are you doing about your blog and aggregation?

Contest Ninja?

In all seriousness there was no ninja in the contest that I know of.  But if he blogged, he’d have had a shot too.

SOBCon is all about the bloggers.  You can read here what last year’s participants had to say.

Here are 3 key reasons SOBCon08 is going to be even better than SOBCon07:

1. Bigger. More attendees. More planning. More to talk about. More to do. More, more, more, more.

2. BAP. “The SOBCon08 program guarantees to send each attendee home with a Business Action Plan that can be immediately executed for measurable success.”

3. Biz. School, that is. An even stronger focus on business blogging and how to use blogs to boost your business.”

Me? This will be my first time. I’m excited about the opportunities this will present. Not only a chance to mingle but learn.  The sessions will be very focused with the end result a plan I can take forward for blogging as a business.

Currently there are no ads on this site, however that is not for a lack of interest. What I’d like to do is get it right. That applies for social networks as well.  Where can I best spend my time and resources?

What are you doing with your blog and your social networks? Are you merely marking time or are you making progress towards your personal and business goals? Has your online life profited you today?

Check out SOBCon and see if it’s for you.  It might just help you answer those questions.

Twitter Relationships – Are you leading the pack?

When you look at this chart from the Twitter blog, just where do you find yourself?  More than 90 followers – check. More than 90 you follow – check. Hmm. Top 10% on both?  Does that put you in the top 1% then of all Twitter users?

But your not alone.  Recent numbers are rumored to be approaching 1 million for Twitter users. 1% of 1,000,000 is about 10,000 users. Woah.

So maybe you’re not totally alone. For a good bit of you, I’m willing to be you have more Twitter contacts than family, friends, and coworkers put together. (Discounting overlap of such with Twitter of course.)

What’s a guy or gal to do with this bit of trivia? Nothing, I say!  Just take it in stride and know that soon enough your boss, your mother, and that strange cousin with a crush on you will all be on Twitter, and your tweets about hot buns and etc might just have to be cut back on.

Hey, wait, was that new Twitter follower my nephew? Now how to explain about Stripper Fridays.
