SplashPress Media: 9Rules is Taking on Bloggers Again

Do you remember 9Rules? It was a blog network, quite busy a couple of years ago. Then it seemed to drop off a cliff one day. It has since been bought up by SplashPress Media.

Once upon a time there would be a gush of interest each time they auditioned new blogs to join the network. I submitted for the last audition but that was at the time they faded away and I never heard a thing. But, now they are revving up again, hoping to regain their place as a network people want to be a part of.

I do. Mainly because I want to have other bloggers to talk to, to compare ideas, successes, failures and just know there are others out there who are in the same boat. You can add your blog to the submissions at midnight on October 1st, 2009. Yes, tonight.

First Commenter Club

First Commenter Club – I’m not clear on how it works really. Something to do with using Linkies. If someone knows tell me about it. I’ve read the site and I must be missing. In some odd way it’s just not clicking for me. It’s funny how sometimes you think too much about something that really is simple. Anyway, however it is, I’m just not getting this.

II – Indie Ink

Indie Ink – II is for writers and artists who don’t just write about one thing; they are or want to be independent of categorization. They don’t just write about parenting or food, they don’t just write poetry, a photographer can also write, etc. Too often we’re lumped into a group in which we may not totally belong. That’s all II is. It’s independent of all of that. Plus, I needed a name.
