A bit of blogging, some blogging tools and a lot of irony. That’s Blog Badly.
Can you take another blog with tips on… blogs? I think I can’t. I can’t stay reading the same old stories about SEO, WP plug-ins, yadda yadda yadda. Please, go read Blog Badly. Don’t overlook the site just because it has too much on sight. That’s a plus, in matter of fact.
You may read the same old blogs, but why not read one that gives you something to laugh at? Or even something to curse too. Max isn’t the kind of guy that stands in front of a PC acting like a PC. He doesn’t give you cold stats, cold news, cold stories. Do you want to know about why blogging sucks? Well, reason #3 is “It’s Too Hard To Make Money - Today’s Earnings: $0.00194“. And what about “All The Good Domain Names Are Already Taken - I guess m-a-king-mon-e-y-onl-in-e.com would work…“? You could also take the list on what you have to do to completely loose your blogging creativity and give it a try. I gave it. And I lost my creativity.
I guess some people would say that the design is a bit too crowded. In matter of fact, it gives you enough. Blog Badly has a lot of widgets on the sidebar, that fits perfectly the overall visual aspect. BB posts are usually small or mid-sized, so you can scroll down the pages and you’ll still read the posts in their entirety. With a double sidebar, the widgets don’t take much of the page vertically, so, when reading older posts, you’ll only get a white sidebar. So, rest! You may ask “but will I have to scroll down to get a clean page?”. The answer is: believe me, you WILL scroll down. The content rocks.
Funny enough, as our first review, Blog Badly is also running a contest on ads. The prize is a free 125×125 ad slot in the upper part of the blog for a full week. You can (and MUST) check the rules of the contest going here: Blog Badly’s Free Weekly 125×125 Ad Space Contest Thingamajig Extravaganza.
