Welcome New Gold Bloggers
I'm going to point out a few new bloggers to welcome to the WoW Gold Blog Community. Take a look at these sites and add some feedback, subscribe to their RSS feed, and see what you think. Both are in my blogroll as they are great finds.
Sorry for the late post, but all week I have been covering shifts for an employee who's mother died. So 6:45am to 6pm every day this week and here I sit working on Saturday as well. Overtime is good, but death is bad. Feel sort of guilt profiting off of someone's demise. Regardless, I put in around 65 hours at work, plus blogging and research time. Not much WoW game time this week.
Kammler's Korner - An excellent site with heavily detailed strategies. Got an email from him thanking me for inspiring him to start his own site. Kammler has been a great commentor within Cold's Gold Factory and continues to comment regularly.
The Vayaz - Gold Reaping - Great new site. Not posting daily, but worth the read.
In Defense Of Markco
The JMTC Blogging Carnival has come under attack by the fool that writes at GTFOOTF. Read this fool's rants and incorrect assumptions about Markco and all of us suckers that participate in the monthly blogging carnivals. Leave a comment with your opinion on the matter and show this fool how ignorant he looks. Markco's blogging carnival has helped many of us newer gold bloggers by providing us a steady boost of traffic. Thanks Markco for all you do to help solidify us as a community. I know myself and other bloggers appreciate it.
Here are some true facts related to the carnivals:
Content isn't stolen. All content is hosted on the author's site.
This brings traffic to us from JMTC, not to Markco's site.
Blogging carnival day (2nd of each month) readership nearly doubles and continues to be much higher for around a week after.
Looking at tracking analytics shows that many people find this site initially by the carnival posts.
Carnival readers subscribe and become regular readers.
The carnivals continue to bring new readership even months after they have been posted on JMTC.
Content is the lifeblood of any blog, but traffic is the vessel that delivers this blood to new locations.
So from Cold to Markco: Keep Up The Good Work!
