Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Buzzfuse Blogosphere

March 13, 2008

Mostly Harmless

In my interest of seeing the Buzzfuse community become a Web 3.0 Community, I came up with a rough guide for how I could quickly evaluate four to eight Buzzfuse blogs that I personally check out daily in the 24 hours list.

Some Buzzfuse blogs that I visited today:

Andy Hadfield’s Cowboys and Engines

James Wolfaardt’s Happy Chicken Suicide Cult

Michele Randall’s Notes from “a TAMM creation”

Alexander Hay’s Wealthbuilding for Fun and Profit

Cardio Girl

Below, some background music (ATB, Long Way Home) for the reading…

Buzzfuse: How to Make Better Pie (part three)

March 12, 2008

Notes from a Patsak:

It is in our nature to want to share things with each other. It is in us, a humanistic impulse to do things that allow us to integrate different knowledge, opinions, feelings, and ideas into a sustainable community. It’s up to you if you want to do something important here and now. If you do want to do something great, a new kind of social interaction can grow through Buzzfuse and around it. And, then, we have a sure thing – a sure thing that we can own, together.

Do you believe that the internet can save your soul? Or, at least our humanity?

Recap of part one and two of my pie review

If you missed my first post about Buzzfuse (Try Pie. Try), go here. If you missed my second post (Delivery and Drive-thru Pie), go here.

After a little over a month of testing, I can honestly say that I like what Buzzfuse is about, what it’s doing, and where it is going. It is a groovey social mechanism for self-promotion- especially if you are a blogger, musician, photographer, etc. There’s a lot of potential in the Buzzfuse community, and things are going to get crazy soon as the word gets out that premium-member creators actually have a chance to bring home more than milk money from the earnings pool.

Buzzfuse supports content creators; it helps them market content and rewards creators for the rich content that brings content hunters. As such, Buzzfuse seems to be an ideal online business partner for the aspiring writer, photographer and musician. Buzzfuse has defined a very important niche for content creators and, hopefully, consumers are going to find they get a lot more out of Buzzfuse than other social media engines such as Digg and Stumbleupon.

The Buzzfuse service represents a meaningful innovation of social media; it provides a welcome alternative to the bad network marketing of online mlm and get rich schemes which push soul-less content at the media cafe. As such, it sets an important direction in the blogosphere just in time for newbies who are thinking about selling out their souls.

How to make Pie

You don’t have to start with an original idea. Just take a headline out of the news and chew on it.
