In Day 28 of his 30 Day Create A Blog Plan, Michael Dunlop shares his thoughts on connecting with, and interviewing other bloggers. I used to do this a lot more and for your enjoyment I’ve inserted a lovely interview I did with Martin Avis from Kickstart Monthly and Kickstart PLR, his private label article site, that I did last year at one of his lunches. I was grilling Martin on the “Secret Of Success” and he comes up with some great insights.
Of course, video is no good for search engines – they need words and unique content to get really excited – so I really must get that transcribed. We had a fantastic transcriptionist in the Philippines but she kept getting sick, all sorts of nasties out there apparently, and she finally disappeared after being ripped off by a business partner.
Actually, just writing this reminds me that I need to find someone new to transcribe videos, as it’s a great way of creating great content.
And I need to go and connect with other bloggers in Brighton for Digital Marketing Brighton blog. I’m doing ok with Twittering so Let’s do a Google search and see who comes up…..
First up is BrightonBloggers.com which has a high page rank but which seems a little neglected. They had meetups and everything, but hey ho, let’s submit our blogs and see what happens. There also seems to have been something called Girl Geek Dinners and the last blog about that was November 2010, so there is something going on. New blogs added in October 2010 include
Emily Bassin’s “Maternal Tales From The South Coast”, Brighton Beans (all about coffee apparently, Brighton Writes which looks a bit more up my street, but I am concerned that they all seem to be on Blogger.com or Blogspot. Haven’t they heard of WordPress?
There’s Bloody Brighton, more of a rant than a tour around the more murderous spots locally, and at last, a self hosted one by Mark Cossey who is a graphic & web designer in Brighton which looks interesting – I’ll follow @burning on Twitter and see what he gets up to.
Off to Wired Sussex to see if they list any local bloggers on there – I’m going to join Wired Sussex and the Brighton Chamber, but not until the weather picks up and I feel better – I’m not even going to poker tonight I feel so bad!
