We are now 8 blogs into 100 blogs in 100 days and theres been some wonderful blogs featured and there is still an awfully large number to go. Keep sending your entries in. I am reading them all as I go and I’m starting to allocate blogs for the following weeks ahead as well.
Two small requests though: if your blog doesn’t work in Firefox don’t bother emailing me because I’m not using IE for anyone. If you’ve updated your blog once in the last two weeks and are wondering why people aren’t reading it then I’m not going to give you a free leg up because nothing will help you if your not blogging regularly.
But back to something more positive. Theres been some great stories coming out of the feature and I want to share one that I’m totally chuffed with. Our first blog off the ranks was Brian Benzinger with Solution Watch, that I can best describe as being a really good looking site with some really interesting content. As they say in promotions the following results may not be typical and cannot be assured, but I tell you what if I can deliver a couple of more stories like this I’ll be a very, very happy man.

Just want to say another thanks! I want to just inform you on what you have helped with:
– Received about 30 more new readers to my feeds
– Sent the message across to others such as TechCrunch, who mentioned my Social Bookmarking list. This then got spread onto Del.icio.us, Populicio.us, Del.icio.us Popular list, furl and all these other bookmarking lists.
– Trackbacks and comments from other websites
– About 600 more unique visitors than my average daily visitors with you and the other sites combined
– And lastly, Paul Scrivens of 9rules Network, has asked me to join his Network.
Thank you very much for this opportunity and I hope that others will benefit as much as I have. It has been an exciting day!…It really does sound too good to be true. My brother and I were discussing it and I am still in shock that all this has happened in the last 24 hours.
From little things big things grow. You know Brian could be in the Feedster 500 by this time next year, or even by the end of the year, and so to can you. What more can I say. I’m stoked that this has happened to Brian. Although everyone’s not going to get a run because there are now 300-400 odd entries I’d ask everyone who entered, and those who haven’t, and drop by to some of the wonderful sites that will be featured over the next 92 days. Sure, your not going to like them all, because they all have different content and different ideas, but mark my words I’m betting you’ll find one you do like. And you never know, amongst them may well be the next very big thing.
