3. Other Blogpond News
I’ve been meaning to add a page with my favourite posts, which I finally got around to doing (many thanks to Thiru for the reminder). You’ll see it in the tabs above called articles. I’ve divided it up into six broad categories, so if you’re recently new around here, you might like to check them out.
A big thank you to the four people who signed up for BlogRush via my referral. I didn’t really expect any – so thanks
And speaking about BlogRush, I’m trying to be patient, but I have to say it’s not really working for me. My stats below, and so far the click through rate has been very ordinary.
How are your stats for BlogRush (if you’re using it)?
Anyone else noticing posts seem to be delivered to Google Reader more quickly?
4. From the Aussosphere
Speaking of Bryce, he’s also established an Australian Bloggers group on Facebook, which has already attracted 65 members.
BigPond is risking a “mass exodus”, according to Melbourne-based professional blogger Darren Rowse. He co-founded a network of 250 blogs that takes advertising but revenue-shares with its bloggers.
“I wouldn’t be too pleased about it myself because people invest their time in starting a blog,” he said.
Hmmm – interesting Google results:
You might not know that I’m a cricket fan. Surprised? It’s about the only team sport that I follow.
I was interested to see that Google have bought in a special quick search for cricket results. Simply type in “Australia cricket” (without the “”) and you’ll get the latest result. You can also type in “cricket score australia pakistan” (or countries of your choice, again without the ” “) to get the score from that game.
Alister Cameron also pointed me to the following video (6 minutes) of Indian Yuvraj Singh hitting six sixes from one over (only the 4th time in history, and a first for Twenty20 cricket) against England. You’ve got to feel a bit sorry for the bowler (Stewart Broad). Colin also reports that Singh’s 50 off 12 balls is a world record.
