Blog Networks All The Rage
This type of collective blogging is on the rise and will eventually permeate many industries. The idea of up to 100 bloggers, all immersed in the content of a niche industry, is a pretty powerful notion.
Here's another thoughtful post about the idea of blog social networks and collaborative blogging
I also blog at the AllBusiness Blog Center

Blog Channel multiplies the value
I've launched what I think is a fascinating experiment this week. I have convinced 8 other very talented bloggers and small business experts to blog on very specific topics related to marketing at one of my other blogs called Duct Tape Marketing.
I am calling the network of bloggers a Blog Channel. The idea is that the Duct Tape Marketing Blog Channel is a place to go to get your marketing advice at very deep level, from a very specific expert. Then you can flip the channels to each of the channel partners and get a taste of everything you need to know about marketing in one spot.
Channel Partners and topics include:
- Zane Safrit - Business Life
- Georgia Patrick - Customers Count
- Dan Janal - PR Leads
- Troy White - Word Wealth
- Martin Jelsema - Buzzworthy Branding
- Jill Konrath - Selling To Big Companies
- Don The Idea Guy - The Idea Department
- Mark Beck - Internet Marketing Unleashed
- John Jantsch - Duct Tape Marketing
You can even subscribe to the Channel Guide and get your RSS updates for all 9 blogs in one feed.
I do believe, humbly of course, that the Duct Tape Marketing Blog Channel may become THE spot on the Internet for small business owners to surf.
