I read lots of blog related to UNIX, Linux and open source software. FeedBurner has launched a new service to give its publishers the ability to organize themselves into networks, groups of folks who publish similar content and want band together to leverage the power of many to cross-promote their content and get more attention.
Linux, *BSD and Open Source software network
I’ve created a network called Linux, *BSD and Open Source software network (feed and opml). Some blogger have joined and I’m looking out for more. It is a network comprised of feeds with content similar to mine. By joining network, you’ll be associated with this network and will have access to some promotional tools to help us increase traffic and “discoverability” using network badges, chicklets and BuzzBoost, which promotes the top posts from the feeds in our network.
How do I join?
If you write regularly with great content and only write about Linux/UNIX/BSD, open source technology, network and sys admin, write me an email.
How do I remove my feed?
You can remove yourself anytime for the network. Or just shoot me an email.
Is this a blogging network?
No, it is not blogging network like Weblogs, Inc or b5media. This is a collection of Linux and UNIX related feeds. If you join you will get two things:
a) Increase in feed count and traffic
b) You may earn extra buck (if you turn on ads via feedburner)
Are you the owner of this blogging network?
Noop. Feedburner is the owner. I am just a network coordinator. See feedburner FAQ for more information. My role is as follows:
I will be responsible for recruiting new network members who publish similar content and generally keeping the quality of the network up to the standards of the participating publishers.
Can I create my own network?
