Altruistic Link Love – Six Degrees

You’ve probably heard of the Six Degrees concept. Any one person (including me, Kevin Bacon) is connected to any other person through six or fewer relationships, because it’s a small world. www.SixDegrees.org is about using this idea to accomplish something good. It’s social networking with a social conscience. Through this web site, you can learn about and support the charities of celebrities and your friends, as well as fundraise for the causes close to your heart. I received this email today from Kevin Bacon (Ok it was a mass mail out to all members of 6 degrees but I thought […] Continue Reading…

Add eBay ads to your blog using AuctionAds

I have avoided putting examples of ads on my blog so far as there are plenty of sites that talk about monetizing your blog. Being a real fan of eBay (I love any chance of a bargain) I am making an exception. AuctionAds provide a way of tapping into the eBay affiliate program – by displaying eBay ads on your web site. You earn commission when links clicked from your site result in a Winning Bid, a Buy-it-Now purchase or a confirmed user registration. Ads are customized to your site content and are country specific – e.g. ads on my […] Continue Reading…

Google AJAX Search Tools

Google has recently introduced some clever search tools that you can use on your blogs. All of these searches can be customised to your own choice of subjects. I have created separate pages to show you examples of this coding in action: There you will find links to the google wizard pages that will help you create these. Google Blog Bar Vertical and Horizontal lets you embed a dynamic Google Blog bar in your web pages. Google Book Bar Vertical and Horizontal – books are shown with their images based on the search criteria you chose. News Bar Vertical and […] Continue Reading…

Impressive effects with Ajax Labels for Blogger

There are a few reasons why I am impressed by this ‘peek-a-boo’ style labeling display method. Firstly because of the idea and skill of the person who made it – Deepak of Blogger Hacked – and secondly because I managed to install it myself!! His instructions were very clear so the latter is not a marvellous feat. As I have not yet transferred this template over to the new Blogger code I have installed this feature on my Sueblimely Practicing the New Blogger blog at Getting Labeled with Ajax/Prototype On the ‘Practicing’ blog I am slowly (because I get sidetracked […] Continue Reading…

A Challenge to Bloggers – A New Kind of Link Love

I have some favorite causes/charities that I like to support. It occurred to me that it may be worthwhile giving some free advertising to them on this blog. It is so easy to do and potentially very worthwhile. I challenge other blogs, whose primary aim is not fundraising, to do the same. I will publish links to the first 20 blogs that contact me (via comments here) who show their altruism by creating an image link(s) on their blogs to their favorite cause or causes. I have started the ball rolling here by adding a linked image to a major […] Continue Reading…

Instant SEO With Anchor Text

Read on:Blog About Money Online – Learn How To Make Money Online: I won’t quote the article verbatim but have referred you to the site for you to read it yourself. Just one of the community spirited type things that members of MyBlogLog do for each other from time to time!! Of as much interest on the site was a little slide show of images which I had to go and investigate. Article on that coming up next. Filed in: seo sueblimely Continue Reading…

AGLOCO

Although this is not directly related to making money by blogging, except for by adding a referral link to your blog, the animated comments on this post “AGLOCO Will Not Make Money Online! Ever!” had me intrigued enough to check it out and then to sign up to see for myself. I don’t believe that even though similar concepts have not been successful in the past others will automatically fail too. Among other things marketing, professionalism, perceived trustworthiness, the number of members and the type of members all have influence on the outcome. So what is it all about?Join up […] Continue Reading…

Bumpzee

I have had one of my web surfing nights – they tend to come in waves! I have joined up with a fair few sites – partly because you need to do that to see what they are all about. After seeing some pages sporting a MyBlogLog like widget I clicked on one of them and discovered Bumpzee (I don’t think it was created by a Daisy or Hans but I could be wrong?). It is a social networking site with similar features to MyBlogLog. A major difference is that to join a community you must be approved. The advantage […] Continue Reading…
