A British blogger is launching a new business venture that will bring together bloggers from around the world as part of an online community.
Kevin Dixie, based in London and La Rochelle, France has created the blogging community at www.fuelmyblog.com. The site allows bloggers to publicise their own blogs for free and recommend others on the site by rating them with votes.
Fuelmyblog.com will also shortly launch a range of weekly podcasts and competitions as well as interviews on their blog chat radio and a range of other web 2.0 features.
The community website began life as a hobby of Managing Director, Kevin but now has two additional directors, Director of Media, Ian Green from Green Communications and Director of IT, Marcus Dyson from Eleventeenth.com and owner of spong.com.
Kevin Dixie says: "I came up with the idea after writing my own blog and wanted to find a site that brought bloggers together and enabled easy reading within a couple of clicks. I always thought of blogs as just online diaries and never realised there was so much good creative content in the blogosphere. Re-launch feedback has been very positive and we have been very encouraged by the buzz generated in the blogosphere."
He added: "I aim to increase the size of the site by re-investing revenue generated in the future from paying advertisers and sponsors. At the moment Fuelmyblog.com is registering more than 100,000 hits a day, a figure which continues to rise."
At the time of re-launch, www.fuelmyblog.com has 2000 registered users and aims to rapidly expand into the online market which currently has over 62 million bloggers discussing everything from the US Presidential Elections to Witch Doctor potions.
CEO of user-generated-content sports site, www.sportingo.com, Ze'ev Rozov, says: "I joined Fuelmyblog the first day it launched. The service has been a great source of new readers for my blog and for the Sportingo website."
Serial blogger, Drew Bennett, signed-up to Fuelmyblog.com and had his site featured as Blog of the Day. He says: "Wow, I thought to myself, my blog is getting noticed. Since that day I've been a big supporter of FuelMyBlog."
To create a personal advertising space for a blog on www.fuelmyblog.com visitors simply select a category, upload an image and description and then add a voting image to their blog - all done in less than a minute.
