They come in a wide variety of different colors, shapes, and sizes. Here are a few of my favorites:
I'm using the one below on our prosperity project to count down the days as we go. And since we are between projects at the moment, this one is a count down to the start of the next one:
This is what it looks like:
The one I installed here can be found in the sidebar towards the bottom of the page.
Here's how it works:
When you add the BlogRush widget to your blog, your post titles will immediately start showing up across a bunch of related blogs that have signed up for BlogRush themselves. If your blog gets 100 page views a day, your links will show up 100 times on other blogs. If it gets 1,000 page views a day, your links will show up 1,000 times.
And what’s even better is that if you refer another blog to BlogRush, your links will be shown even more based on the traffic they receive.
Remember: It is estimated that more than 20% of blog readers are also bloggers!

What is the D-List? It is a list of sites that have been modified and no longer use a "nofollow" tag in their comment links.
Why is this a good thing? Because your ranking on Google and Technorati is partially determined by the number of sites that link back to you. If you comment on a blog that has not modified their comments to "follow" your link, it will be ignored. But if you comment on "Do Follow" blog, your link will count. This gives your readers a really good reason to leave comments.
It's quite easy to do, here are links to tutorials for the various blog platforms:
- Word Press - get the plug in
- Moveable Type - how to disable the "no follow" code
- Blogger - how to modify the template
You can get several really nifty "U comment - I follow" images, like the one at the top of this post, at Randa Clay Design. Courtney Tuttle has a long list of Do Follow blogs, and tons of other good advice.
This partial DoFollow Blog list is courtesy of Courtney Tuttle and was created originally by Coleen as the D-List.

Here are some highlights from their FAQ. It gives an idea of what is required in order to get noticed at their site.
- What is the 'Score' and what does it mean?
The 'Score' that you see next to each listing indicates that listings overall score. Scores play a part in determining a listings rank in search results. A listing will increase/decrease it's score depending on users ratings, incoming traffic and outgoing traffic amongst other variables. Basically, a high Score is a good score!
- How do I get into The Top 100 Most Cool section?
Blogs which have sent the most readers to Blogarama (incoming traffic) via our links will be listed first. The listings overall Score will also play a small part the ranking.
- How do I get into The Top 100 Most Popular section?
Blogs which are visited most by Blogarama users (outgoing traffic) will be listed first. The listings overall Score will also play a small part the ranking.
- How do I get into The Top 100 Highly Rated section?
Blogs that have the most amount of positive ratings will be listed first. The listings overall Score will also play a small part the ranking.
If you are unfamiliar with the game of the Sudoku, the idea is pretty simple. You want to get the numbers 1-9 in every vertical and horizontal row, as well as every small square on the puzzle without repeating one.
I found this post at the Million Dollar Website.
Free Ad Space on a Million Pixel Website.
July 26th, 2007
Do you have a website, blog or affiliate program you would like to promote? How about promoting your site for free? If you do then you may have just stumbled on great offer here. I need help testing and promoting a “Million Pixel Website”.
Since starting this blog I have learned one of the hardest things to do is to get your site noticed. Most bloggers are on a tight budget so advertising a new site is usually left up to submitting to directories, so I decided to set up our own “Million Pixel Website” but the only difference is this one will be free (at least for a while).
Interested? Visit the post and get the details on how to sign up.
Here's a screen capture of what the page looks like. See the wierd dude with the bugged out eyes and the tattoos? Those are the pixels I grabbed. I think he stands out nicely in the crowd! I linked it to More Cool Pictures
The main reason to do something like this would be to get link backs (which look good to google and technorati) and maybe a stray reader or two.
The other cool thing I found was Wrong Blog, Wrongblog is an open blog project.
Anyone can write a post on wrongblog. No porn or nasty stuff allowed though. Everyone is welcome add your latest post with links back to your blog. or just write it's up to you. Wrongblog has a google page rank of 4 so why not add your two cents today!
I signed up at both sites, and then I couldn't figure out what to post. LOL. As many blogs as I have and I couldn't think of something to post. Now that's just silly!
