More Hype? Or Hope for Bloggers?

Yesterday, I signed up for something called BlogRush. In theory, adding the BlogRush widget (you can see mine somewhere on the right-hand column) will create links to various articles from your blog onto widgets on other people's blogs. At the simplest, if your blog gets 10 hits a day, then you'll be linked from 10 widgets somewhere in the World Wide Web during the course of a day. It doesn't guarantee people clicking on the widget links, but you get at least some extra visibility on the Web, and that could translate into site traffic, readers, and subscribers.

This is some new technology, released only a couple of days ago, so there needs to be the weeding out of bad users and other bugs in the system.

So here's the orientation video for said cult...I mean, for BlogRush:

Na na na na na na na na...LEADER!!!

P.S. Apologies for the excessive affiliate linking. Also, I'll try to write something meatier tomorrow.
