There is a pretty cool widget I just installed called BlogRush. I saw some stuff about it over on Digg, where it has taken off and is starting to look spammy. I did a little investigating–it’s not. On top of that, BlogRush already looks to be uber-viral, so you’re going to be seeing a lot more of it. If not on your blog, everywhere else.
BlogRush is basically a free widget that syndicates its feeds based on subject to blogs all over the web. The marketing side comes in with pageviews. Every impression you register gets your post included on the syndication somewhere else on the network. Basically tit for tat syndication.
I’m not really expecting to get a rush of traffic, like the name would imply, but picking up a reader here and there isn’t a bad thing. The cool part is that BlogRush isn’t click dependent, so all of your impressions count. This can’t be said for most other marketing/social networking stuff.
You can pick up extra credits by using their referral program, sorta like MLM, but no investment required.
Check it out. At $0, BlogRush is at least priced right!

I’m very skeptic. But I would like to learn from your mistakes:) Will you have a follow up on the change in traffic in few weeks?
Sure thing….next week! It can only help though, not hurt.
BTW, if you want to learn from my mistakes, pull up a chair. I’ve got plenty to teach you, and it seems like class is constantly in session.
We just set that up on Home-Ec 101 today! Neat-o!
I just installed it today myself. As someone said, it can only help, not hurt.
