Skull and Bones and Blog Networks
That’s because all I seem to do is complain. But as Perry White says, “Good news doesn’t sell newspapers.”
Some one mentioned the Instablogs site to me because they have a new design. It looks nice. But that is not what caught my eye. What caught my eye was the fact that they were promoting the Instablogs Community.
It’s a place where all the writers of the, I don’t know, one billion instablogs can hang out and chat.
It is a dumb idea.
If you own a blog network your focus should be on your audience. Making sure they are happy enough with the content your content creators are creating so that they come back.
If you feel that private clubs are important to your success then make them for your audience. Let them be able to get in if they make a certain number of good comments or some other act of loyalty.
Let your content producers decide who’s worthy so they have something else to do besides desperately trying to make you rich.
But do not waste your valuable time creating a country club for your content producers while their audience huddles under the bus stop in the rain at the public golf course.
It just pisses people off.Explore posts in the same categories: 9rules, Andy Hagans, blog networks, communities, content, cursing, instablogs, research, writers
