Switching to WordPress

Hi Everyone,

Since our CMS system was totally shut down over the past three weeks because Blogger not requires a 'word/phrase verification' mainly over the SPAM bloggers out there; those of us who do this to provide valuable content to our readership have been struggling with choosing another blog option.

I met with a few bloggers this week who blog to SMB Trend, Small Business Branding and a host of others, and then said they were ALL going to move over to Wordpress.

I'll be up and running in a week or so. Thanks for your patience.

Blogger Killer Posting Blog Software

That's right. I haven't posted for nearly three weeks. And now I am putting the first "manual" entry on my blog. Recently, Blogger stopped my "Blog Power" application from posting my entries. I wrote the article/entry and then set a time for it to post automatically. This comes at a big dissapointment. Why? Because all the blog spammers just ruined Blogger for the rest of us. I will not use Blogger anymore. As of tomorrow, I will be transitioning this blog over to Wordpress.

I am hoping it will keep all the post as I worked extremly hard on pulling content and writing things that matter to small business owners.

Weblog Model Uncovered


If you know any thing knew about blogs, is that a one company is making $1,000,000 per year from Google alone with their network of blogs. Some serious work went into these as well as a long list of writers who get paid handsomely to blog posts daily. I use these sites religiously and had to let people know some of the interworkings.

Well - I am not going to reveal this right now. Sorry. I have a list of business requirements that were used as well as how the technical infrastructure was setup to make this immensly popular network of blog sites. If you think the sites are just proprietary blog software, combined with PHP/Javascript/HTML -- you are really going to be suprised and excited to hear that it's way more complicated than that. List serves, new backend technologies only integrated with blogs, super blog ping servers that make this the most widely use new source for mobile marketers that the company is being tossed millions just to sell.

More tomorrow. Oh yeah!!! Let's make this model open source.
