Another One Bites the Dust

Hello Blogs and Social Networks Fans (Like Myself =) !

Unfortunate circumstances seem to be falling on various sites for the past year or so. Sadly many blog and social network related sites are going by the wayside. The big dogs have fully taken over the porch it seems =)

Bloglines will be closing up it’s bookmarking style blog feed sharing site on October 1, 2010. Again, another one bites the dust. It seems this World Wide Web began with masses and choices, now whittling down to few and chosen with a sprinkling of new and diverse 🙂 Bloglines, we will miss you!

Blogs and Social Networks Social Bookmark Sites

We discussed many of the top Social Bookmark Sites on our Blogs and Social Networks Show Social Bookmarking Sites but here are some details about a scattered few of these Social Bookmark Sites 🙂

Newsvine.com is a different sort of Social Bookmark Site. Newsvine really focuses on Headline, interesting “right now” news and articles. Find something great to post to Newsvine via their free to use toolbar button. Like StumbleUpon, these sites concentrate more on individual posts, news and articles, not necessarily ones you wrote 🙂 Only found to include here in the mixx of Newsvine. So while you surf about and find the newest, most interesting articles, posts, and news stories, you can post them to your Newsvine page. If you are the first to post a particular story, you get to write a small description and get featured as the first to find this story 🙂 Both Newsvine and Stumble Upon are similar in this.

Digg usually houses an online on the site button to Digg a story rather than having a toolbar button.

At Newsvine, Stumble Upon, and Digg  friending is allowed, rather required at Digg though. Without friends at Digg who then Digg what you input into Digg, you are kind of left without many Digging your stuff 🙂 So keep that in mind.

Now, don’t forget if you are ever having trouble posting content to your blogs, whether they be a journal, a blog on a social network, or a seperate blog site like Live Journal, Blogger, WordPress, Podbean, or Vox, Why not make a post about your chosen social bookmarking sites? Why you use them and what they have to offer.

Blogs and Social Networks Search Engine Land

Search Engine Land

Search Engine Land

This is a site with condensed news and information ( highlighting, it seems, the master of the searches, Google ). Find the latest, most up to date topics of interest where search engine optization and other related announcements are posted. News from Yahoo, Google, Microsoft, Ask, AOL, and more. The site is easy to navigate with tabbing across the top for the major topics and an “on site” search box to look up any topic of searching the Internet you can think of. Subscribing to the newsletter (about half way down the page on the right) will keep you up to date or subscribe along the top to the RSS Feed or add to Bloglines, Netvibes, Google, Windows Live, or My Yahoo.
