Weekend Events

I’m back after my weekend ‘off’. It was definitely off in terms of blogging however a very busy one on other fronts with weddings (one of them my sister) and other personal commitments. I took close to 1000 photos over the weekend something I really enjoyed.

Of course having the weekend off means that big news is bound to happen on a pro blogging front and this weekend there were a few stories that I’d have covered if I were here.

One of these is that BlogAds secured a big deal this week with MSNBC. They signed up over 800 blogs to a campaign they are running, their biggest campaign they’ve ever signed. I’ve got the campaign running on a couple of my blogs.

Also in news being reported everywhere this weekend was the sale of to Yahoo! Looks like the big online players are continuing to buy up emerging technologies and services. One has to wonder who will be next. I wonder who is courting Digg for instance.

I’m sure there are other stories that have broken over the weekend. I guess I’ll discover them as I wander through my RSS feeds today.

Hope your weekend was good.

  1. Darren, have you tried Riya yet? If you don’t have an invite, drop me an email and I’ll talk to the team about getting you in. If you’ve got 1,000 photos, you might want to try out the facial recognition software. It truly is cool and it might make organzing those things a lot easier! :-)

    Glad you had a good weekend and good to see you back

  2. Welcome back. Glad you had a good weekend.

    Welcome back to the powers that be. Thanks to MSNTV, I’ve been having 3 blogads running already on my personal sites this year

    Gah! All of this talk about Blogads, lately, and I can’t join the network. (I am most definately wanting to.) No sponsor, and I have no clue where to get a sponsor, or how to approach someone about sponsoring me.

    Any tips, or relevant posts?
