One reader asked me about Blogrush widget and he asked why did I still use it when I had dissed Blogrush earlier? Here are the reasons.

1) I like to experiment. Since I need blog topics for this blog, I gobbled up new stuffs, chew it, taste it and then, tell my readers what it tastes like. Initially, Blogrush sucks but after they had cleaned up their network of blogs, I notice that the links in the widget are pretty impressive. I discovered many new blogs of the same topic.

2) Not everyone gets admitted into Blogrush and some were kicked out. So, yes! I win! I am in. That means I better appreciate it and give it another shot.

3) It has nice graphs and I love staring at graphs.

I know those numbers are meaningless but heck, I like to see the colourful graphs. LOL.

4) I do get traffic, albeit pathetic.

This is the screenshot of the referral traffic I got from the Blogrush widget for my food blog. Only a miserable 8 for a whole month. So, I had ditched that widget.

For this blog, I got about 60 per month so I am giving them a chance.

Some observations I made :

a) The same old blog appears all the time, e.g. JohnChow.

b) I have only seen my own blog post appearred only ONCE. I should have taken a screenshot and post a huge post, “Look ma! My blog is on Blogrush!” Ptui.

Right now, my sidebar is pretty empty so I shall leave Blogrush widget here for a little while and see how it performs. It makes a bloggable topic, that’s why.

TRY SCRATCHBACK INSTEAD!

Hey, take a look at the post ‘cos LinkWorth’s big boss Wicko wuz there too. Am I famous or am I famous? *grins* Oh ya, I made nearly 20 bucks with ScratchBack.
