A few weeks back, Derrick Daye from Branding Strategy Insider clued me in about MyBlogLog. I’ve never really gotten into MySpace myself, but I’m really loving how I can use MyBlogLog to discover new blogs to read by word-of-community. And who doesn’t love to see visually who reads your shtuff and follow them to their blog? This is something that traditional site logs could never do.
Probably the best consequence of such a community is that it’s a great “push” strategy to drive traffic to your site without relying on search engine rankings (pull). Building up a good profile of contacts and reading other blogs, it’s as simple as that. Sometimes all it takes is a provocative avatar.
