BlogMad. . .

**Update**

BlogMad will be going public on the 20th... so this will roll off tomorrow!
*--------------------*


You might be hearing the buzz about 'BlogMad'.. I signed up and the 'counts' are definitely going up, unfortunately, it doesn't seem like the actual readership is growing, as it's just you faithful readers who're posting comments (which I appreciate more than you could know!)...

However, BlogMad is currently in 'invite only' mode. If you'd like an invite, drop me an email and I'll send you one as soon as I can.

I took a quick look at BlogMad but it just made me feel tired. Are there some hidden incentives? I've already got some pretty nice reads....

Comfort Addict said...

You can always count on us, Bill, your regular readers.

Bill said...

Lorna - It's been an interesting diversion. I've belonged to several of these 'traffic builders' for a while now... this is the first one I've ever really experimented with.

It builds 'hits' that's for sure, but, from what I've seen it's not really bringing 'readers'.

I'm far more interested in readers, than I am in 'hits'!

CA Thanks bro... and you can count on me as well!

Interesting date there Sweetie...how'd you go from Thursday, March 16th to Friday, March 31st? very interesting! but then, your blog always is! great writing!!! :}{;

Beth said...

Do you like to get a lot of hits? I don't even have a counter. Should I be more worried about how many are reading? Haha.

Neil said...

you wont get readers until you get hits, you wont get hits until you expose your blog
using something like blogmad is of course beneficiial

You might not get the readers you are looking for but as long as you are a member and use their system a couple of times a week, you remain listed in their directories which means that your blog will get heavily crawled by all the search engine spiders that blogmad attracts. And so in time you'll experience huge search engine traffic ( Where people are searching for content )simply because of something as simple as blogMad

I love their service and will use it as long as I am a blogger.

Ananke said...

Gotta agree with you on BlogMad, the hits have gone up dramatically but not a whole lot of new commenters. Seems like you need a hundred hits before someone actually stops long enough to read the content. I think most people are just waiting for the counter to run down so that they can get their surfing credit.

I'm here from blogmad :) Nice blog

Brad said...

Just grooving through on BlogMad, thought I'd say hi.

Hi!

ender said...

another person here from blogmad ... and i will say that i've gotten more comments from new people than when i used other traffic exchange programs ... now whether that's because i've found myself leaving more comments on other people's blogs than i did before or if the blogmad folks are just digging what i'm writing at the moment, i don't know.

anyhow ... nice blog :D

Bill said...

Beth - Nope... I like to get a lot of readers, and comments!! I think you shouldn't worry at all.. just keep writing!

Neil - That's pretty much what I'm hoping for. I love my regulars, I'd just like to have a lot more...

Traffic is the key to that in the end, most will just surf on by, but, if I'm lucky, I'll pick up one, or maybe two, out of ech couple hundred that drop by!

ananke - Thanks for the 'witness', the way I see it, if I just pick up a few more regulars... I'd be very happy!

It's the comments and feedback that makes my day!

anon - Thanks

Brad - Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!

Ender - I'm glad you enjoyed your visit. I'm still 'on the fence' with respect to blogmad... but, you can't deny they up the hit numbers!

Cristie said...

Bill said...

Cristie - Hi right back... 'Dizzy Miss Lizzy' is planning on heading over to BlogMad... so at least one other friend will be there soon!

Aurura said...

Hey there bill,

I wanna thank you for posting your comment on my blog yesterday... I truly appreciate what you said. ;8^) Both my husband and I did.

I've read about BlogMad, visited the site, and wasn't sold... but I'd like to go ahead and try it once. If you're still giving out invites, I'd love one!

Bill said...

Aurura - You're both very welcome! Thanks for stopping by here, and, your invite is on its way!

Comfort Addict said...

Thanks for the tip about BlogMad, though. As a former Brit wannabe, I love the Britishisms like "advert" that pop up. I also found a good blog called "But I Digress." It may show up on my Blogroll soon.

Bill said...

Liz - I hope you enjoy it, I've found a couple blogs I liked, which is always a good thing.

CA - Anytime... I like surfing blogs, some are not for me, some I pass on, some I watch and some are instantly interesting :) I hope you have some fun, let me know if you find something you really like.
