blogmad is fun


I often write an entry and then return to write an introduction for the entry, especially lately (though I started a while back I suppose) what with my blogmad mania reaching a fevered pitch (pending recovery of my blogmad self, for as of this writing I am very much on hold, in limbo, and frozen... I wonder if the Madonna song fits there... maybe it I pray to the FSM I'll be saved) as I've been wanting to encourage you all to check the place out...

* LATEST NEWS and BLOGMAD REPORT *

we interrupt this entry to let you know that after a brief disaster, blogmad is up and running and back to normal, ummm, well, not normal, but all is well.... some of you will have to re-register due to the recent database crash... if you had ranking or credits saved, just send an email to support AT blogmad DOT net and they'll fix you right up even better than before... and so will I if you let me know (double credits are coming up soon, so get re-registered and let me know so I can send you extra start-up credits)... and now, we return you to your regularly scheduled celebration of the festival of blogmad bloggers

so I decided that instead of doing that, this time I'd just write a blogmad entry because I think it's a great idea, a great site, and worth an entry all by itself (or would this be another blogmad entry all by itself?... ummmm, well, read on anyway, I might be getting better at this)...

if you are interested in increasing traffic to your site (doesn't that sound so businesslike), by most accounts, blogmad is the best way yet...

if you are a blogaholic (doesn't that sound so clinical) like me, you'll be able to explore thousands of new blogs...

with each blog you visit, one more person will be coming by to view your blog, diary, journal, or whatever you might call your site... new readers, new friends, and a wealth of blogging, design, and internet knowledge (and all sorts of fantastic and fascinating odds and ends that you might find useful)...

blogmad is rapidly becoming a community of people who share themselves, ideas, creativity, and a slice of life through words on the web... and when you want a break from exploring new sites, there are lots of other things to do (and more coming)...

there is usually someone interesting, informative, and/or fun in the shout box to talk to or read...

if you are into games, there are a few fun games to play where you can win more credits (that will get your blog seen more)... I love hangman and the puzzles, personally... they also have Prominence, which I haven't tried simply because I know how addicted I can get to games and it's one of those continuous games that I'd probably love... there are also cage fights where you bet credits, winner takes all... and a lottery where you can suddenly become an internet star... each offers the opportunity to increase visitors to your site while you have fun playing...

and if you want to bring a bit of blogmad into your offline world (like I did), there's stuff... I've got two of the big mugs already and T-shirts are next... I'm looking forward to other neat stuff (like blogmad stationary, pens, mouse pads)... I especially want a blogmad T-shirt that has my blog address on the back... maybe with "Gone Blogmad" on the front with those goofy eyes...

the best part about blogmad for me is the people...

the site creators are brilliant designers and caring bloggers... they are not just open to suggestions, they welcome and encourage us to come up with ideas that would make the community better...

there's a bulletin board type forum where ideas can be suggested and discussed... it's a great place to get answers about all sorts of questions...

there's an IRC channel where the topic is blogmad, though casual chat, in group or privately, is welcome, but most especially blogmad questions can be asked (or you could actually get to chat with me, privately even... now how can you resist that?)...

and the growing community of members is wonderfully diverse from all walks of life and all parts of the world... some are interesting and creative writers, others struggle to find words but have a desire to share themselves on the web... internet veterans and newbies alike... some are web design geniuses and some are first time computer users... it's a great place to learn how to use many different things, including your computer...

I know that I might have a rather unique perspective on the philosophy of blogging and I am quite addicted to rambling on and on here and reading your rambles, but secretly I think browsing through profiles is almost as much fun as browsing through blogs...

so if you are looking for a great new community, if you are looking for great new words to read, if you are looking to learn more about blogging, the internet, computers, other cultures, and many more topics, or just looking to get more visitors and potential readers, blogmad is it...

and besides, blogmad is fun...
