The majority of are currently running blogs of our own and this probably means that we are well aware of what’s going on in the blogosphere at any given time. However there are just so many blogs out there and it’s pretty tough to keep up with all of the latest blogs going live throughout the day. Even if you are visiting your favorite blogs on a daily basis and subscribing to their news feeds and mailing lists, you are still probably missing out on a lot of great content from other blogs.
In this post I wanted to ask the question…
I’ve listed a few of my favorite places below. Be sure to leave your recommendations in the comments area.
Of course we have to start off with social networks! Not only can we connect with friends, bloggers and news sites around the world, but it’s also INSTANT! While blogging news can travel fast, nothing is faster than social media right now and connect with friends.
Social networks are also great for getting the latest blogging news feeds sent directly to your accounts, but it’s also a great way to connect with blogger groups as well.
One of my good friends Ileane of BasicBlogTips.com, has a great Facebook Fan Page that has several thousands of users that are always chatting it up about the latest blogging news and ways to improve their sites. Be sure to check it out!
One of the best ways to get the most updated news is through the use of rss and news feed sites. In short, these sites provide the latest posts that are going live from a collection of different blogs and makes it easy for you to scan through the list and see which ones you are interested in. This saves a ton of time versus having to subscribe to different blog mailing lists and visit each of them individually.
In the affiliate blogging space affposts.com, affbuzz.com and bloggerscope.com are some of the well known sites.
I actually touched on this topic a few days ago on ZacJohnson.com and I wrote out a mega list of top marketing blogs that everyone should be following. The list is actually a list of sites that rank the top blogs out there based on different categories. In total there are over 1,000 different blogs between the top lists and I’m sure many of them you have yet to know of.
I’ve only started to scratch the surface of the many different ways to get your latest blogging news and discussions. Be sure to continue the conversation in the comments below!
