Blogging’s Greatest Hits


by Deborah Ng

As a professional blogger, it took years for me to learn the ropes. Blogging isn’t something I entered into blind. I did a lot of research to learn from the best probloggers in the business. There’s a lot more to blogging than just posting some content.

After browsing our blogging-related content, I realize we have so much educational content from both well known bloggers, and up and comers. If you’re interested in learning more about blogging, you might be interested in these gems from the BlogTalkRadio vault:

Twitter’s Greatest Hits

How do YOU use Twitter Search?

by Deb

Over the weekend I had an epiphany. Since we’re always using the forum, this blog and BlogTalkRadio Insider to help our hosts find ways to bring traffic and listeners to their shows, why not also bring out some gems from the BlogTalkRadio vault. Saturday’s feature, Chris Brogan’s Greatest hits was quite the success and I hope those who listened to some of the archived segments walked away with something useful.

Since Twitter is a huge topic of discussion among the BlogTalkRadio community, I thought it was time to bring out Twitter’s Greatest Hits. Some of these links are single segments, others point to a Twitter oriented show page. As with the last “Greatest Hits” feature, I hope you walk away with the knowledge you need to succeed using this popular microblogging platform. Behold:

Bob Cox of the Media Bloggers Association on Blog World Expo Radio


Members of the blogosphere won’t want to miss out on today’s Blog World Expo Radio show. Hosts Jim Turner and Rick Calvert will be chatting with the president of the Media Blogger’s Association, Robert Cox.

Why is this a big deal?

Unless you’ve been hiding in a cave or off Twitter for a while, there’s a big ‘ol storm brewing because of a funny little blog called The Drudge Retort which poked a bit of fun at the real deal Drudge Report. Not everyone has a sense of humor and the Associated Press went DMCA on The Drudge Retort’s butt. Backlash ensued.

Read Rick Calvert’s explanation at the BWE blog:

Very short version of the story, The AP sent several DMCA take down notices to The Drudge Retort. Some of those notices went beyond normal fair use standards. Rogers Cadenhead the publisher of The Drudge Retort complied with several of the notices and called the Media Bloggers Association for help.

Then all hell broke loose. The Blogosphere is railing against the AP. Jeff Jarvis has been very vocal. Sites like TechCrunch and Little Green Footballs are banning all AP content.

Mike Arrington and numerous others suspect a conspiracy between The AP, The NYT and The MBA.

Others are calling the MBA a flat out scam and even attacking the man at the center of this bruhaha Cadenhead.

Now some are coming to the MBA and Cox’ defense.

What is the real story? I don’t know and the truth is most folks in the Blogosphere don’t either but that doesn’t stop many from forming opinions and lynching parties.

To get the whole story and to find out how this will effect you as a blogger, tune in today at 3:00 p.m. EST to BWE Radio. You can call in at 646-716-7047 or add your views to the chat.

See you there.
