Ça marche les invitations

Va falloir que je recommence à faire mes invitations de façon régulière parce que ça fonctionne, quand même quatre nouveau et nouvelles comme conséquence.

Ouin

Si je me préoccupais plus de mes stats (peut-être que je devrais) je vous dirais quelque chose du genre: Linkez-moi calvaire, c’est inacceptable que je sois pas plus haut que trente sixième. Mais bon, m’en fou un peu. Je doit dire que je suis assez astonishé quand même du rang de certains et que je […]

Sugar Money

The Sugar Publishing (PopSugar) blog network gets 5 million in financing. I’m kind of uncertain about calling that stuff “blogs”, they’re a new type of online media that uses blogs. Or we need to start saying “personal blog” because I can’t have this site be called the same thing as a much bigger setup that’s […]

Writing Writing or Blurting?

I haven’t read Alexandre’s post on Disparate yet but the little note at the top (about that being a draft that he never finished writing) made me think of something. How do you write on your blog? Do you just blurt it out as you think it, not much re-reading or censoring? Do you write […]

La société blogue

Radio-Canada a maintenant des journalistes qui blogues, sagira de voir si ils “catchent” les blogues comme Arpin et Lagacé chez la compétition et ou ce situe le niveau des commentaires, si trollesque chez ces derniers. Vous me le direz parce que moi, aucun des cinq ne m’intéresse.

VIP Hosting

Based on our experience with folks like (the first ever blogger in space) Anousheh Ansari, Scoble, Om Malik’s Web Worker Daily, and other high-profile and high-traffic bloggers using WordPress, we’ve put together something we’re calling “VIP Hosting” which allows these folks to piggyback on our WordPress.com infrastructure, getting the benefits of what we’ve built without […]

Ces cons conspuants quiconque connu

La citation de la semaine (parce que c’est bien écrit et très vrai): En fait, de plus en plus les systèmes de commentaires de blogues connus ne sont qu’un trou sans fond dans lesquelles les masses peuvent vomir leur bile en ayant l’impression d’être écoutées. En passant à l’écrit, en laissant sa contribution à un […]

Blogging for Dollars

But here’s what gives Arrington real distinction: He’s pulling in $60,000 in ad revenue every month. That’s 10 times what the site was making earlier this year, which was when Arrington, convinced of the potentially monstrous riches ahead, quit his day job as president of a startup to blog full-time.—Blogging for Dollars
