I love blogs and can fall into the trap of reading them and getting side tracked far too easily.
The thing about blogs is that you have a choice whether to continue receiving them and you know for sure that you will not get any more feeds after you cut the RSS link. I have recently unsubscribed from many of my e-mail newsletters and opted for blogging feeds instead.
There also seems to be a much greater effort to provide quality content on blogs – which can’t be said for some of the inane e-mails I receive.
I came across a blog just now quite by chance that contained a reference to a product that I distribute for Adam Eason. As I read on it turned out to be full of glowing praise for ‘Think Yourself Thin’ Free of charge there is someone singing the praise of a product he has used – what more could a product maker want? Recommendations used to travel by word of mouth – it could be better described now as word of blog – and worldwide at a fantastic speed.
I had no idea the blog existed but it really got me thinking about the way that commerce works world-wide now. People reading recommendations in blogs must now account for a lot of impulse buying.
Let me tell you how I stumbled upon this site (what a great name that would make for a social bookmarking site 🙂 )
My team here have put together a niche social bookmarking site called Hypgroove. It is all there ready for the thousands of people who want to promote their blogs, videos, articles and MP3s about hypnosis and self-improvement. Early days so always pleased when someone posts a new bookmark link. The latest new link led off to the blog in question – ‘Game of Self’.
The article linked was about help for Toastmasters to give speeches – but I couldn’t help spotting an Adam Eason advert flashing away at the side. So I did a search on this blog and there was the ‘Think Yourself Thin’ article. I couldn’t write a stronger testimonial for the product if I tried.
