Okay, so the somewhat meme-esque tag thing a few days ago was fun, and Evan (of the increasingly popular Orange Yeti blog
) took it to a whole next level by adding a seven-year curse
to the formula. So far so good. It was a fun way to start the week.
This is something completely different though. And even it isn't as fun because you don't get to find out about the ridiculous jobs some of us have had, it's kind of interesting nonetheless.
From what I gather, Chris Pearson (of Pearsonified
) started this little "Indie Virus" experiment to:
1) bring exposure to lesser known blogs (especially those outside of Technorati's top 100), and
2) explore the metrics behind a viral linking campaign launched by the "little guys" (less popular blogs)
Ah so. If you're curious, read all about it here
In the spirit of science, marketing, and the advancement of humanity, let me first thank Ron McDaniel (at Buzzoodle
) for sneezing on me
. If you arent familiar with his WOMM-inspired blog yet, definitely check it out. So... the question is... who will I pass the virus to?
Let's see... So many great blogs to choose from...
Okay. I've made my decision:
1) The From The Marketing Trenches
blog is always a great read: It's always on the money, to the point, and full of insight. (What else can you ask for?) Go check it out at: The Indie Virus
2) Mark True's A Little Bit Of Mark
is the other lucky infected blog. It's still very new, but I kind of like it, and Mark has some very smart things to say. Go visit him here: The Indie Virus
