Mentions in the Blogosphere 10 June 07

by Martin Reed on 10 June 2007 in Snippets

These articles detail mentions of my blog out in the blogosphere. Not only does this recognise those who write about my blog, it allows you to see what other people are saying about Community Spark.

Hopefully you will also find mentions of articles you have not yet come across which may be useful to you.

Brown Baron included my blog in his ‘Top 10 emerging blogs in 2007‘ – this is hugely flattering and encouraging, as I am relatively new to the world of blogging.

David from mentions my article on link building to create awareness in his post ‘Weekend links for 1 June‘, and my article on the importance of contingency plans in his post ‘Weekend links for 8 June‘.

Si, also known as The Lazy Hippy, mentions this blog as his inspiration for joining the ‘dofollow movement’ in the article ‘No nofollow – loads of link love!‘. Make a comment on The Lazy Hippy and you will now enjoy a full link back to your site.

David is currently mulling over some ideas for his blog title – in his article he takes a look at some blogs he visits to see what they are doing, and in doing so he gives Community Spark a mention.

Al from Self Made Minds recently made some changes to his blog – although those who submit a comment don’t currently get a full link back in return, those that make the ‘Top Commentators’ list do, and they also get to choose what link text to have displayed. He used my preferred link text of ‘Community Building Blog’ as an example.

Kevin from Blogging Tips called out my article entitled ‘Improving search engine listings through link building‘ in his links roundup for the 5th June 2007.

David from TechZi listed Community Spark as a recommended blog in his article entitled ‘Entrepreneurs – Making a living online‘.

Josh publicised our interview with him in his post ‘I got interviewed‘ – his achievements are fantastic. If you haven’t yet read my interview with Josh Buckley, do so now!

The guys at Blue Fur mentioned my article entitled ‘Avoid getting swamped with emails‘ in their post ‘In the sphere‘. Blue Fur are a hosting provider – I have not used them personally so cannot offer a personal recommendation, although I have heard positive things about them.

Nate finishes off this round of ‘Mentions in the Blogosphere’ – he wrote about my coverage of Net Business Blog going up for sale in his article ‘Powerful posts – May 30, 2007‘.

I hope to make these ‘Mentions in the Blogosphere’ posts on a regular basis – if you find some content on this blog you feel is worth a mention to your readers, you may just find your blog getting some recognition here in return.

Three ‘Davids’ including myself… Not bad going, Martin! ;)

Gotta throw in some last initials to differentiate between the Davids. But one often also has that problem with Michaels, Marks or even Daniels.

But never Martins, I’ve noticed.

Thanks for the link love Martin!

checking a few of these out now

I didn’t realise just how many Davids I had mentioned! I will definitely need to use second initials if this happens again in the future – thanks for the idea Daniel!

Keep up the good work guys, and let me know what you think of the articles, Matthew.
