If anybody has a problem with any blogger links please contact the moderator and let them be the judge of Freeper infractions. But please be mindful of the bloggers who provide timely, beneficial posts which further the conserative cause or benefit the conversation within some of the other catagories. Considering that this is a blogger forum, if it looks like someone has gone to the trouble of locating a good video and/or article with some unique commentary then cut him/her some slack. If its a drive-by blogger then call him on it. We need to encourage excellence in blogging ESPECIALLY amoungst fellow conservatives. Bloggers who work diligently poviding timley, quality information should be rewarded for their efforts and not discouraged. What do you think?
“are you trying to garner hits”
For the sake of hits.....no! For the sake of timely news and discussion....yes! And may I say that “Dittos Rush” has done this with excellence!
I think much of what is posted from blogs is repetitive and useless. Just today, I see several blog threads that simply blog other blogs.
That way be madness.
Oh, I see. Still, I thought that bloggers were automatically shunted to the Blogger section anywise, and almost by definition couldn’t post in the News/Activism sections or post their stuff up as Breaking News? I know a few times I’ve tried to post articles I’ve found on blogs, and had to put them in the Blogger/Personal section because blogspot/mu.nu/wordpress/whatever was blocked from News/Activism....?
Guy goes into a bar, there's a robot bartender.
The robot says, "What will you have?" The guy says, "Martini." The robot brings back the best martini ever and says to the man, "What's your IQ?" The guy says, "168". The robot then proceeds to talk about physics, space exploration and medical technology.
The guy leaves, but he is curious, so he goes back into the bar. The robot bartender says," What will you have?" The guy says, "Martini". Again, the robot makes a great martini, gives it to the man and says, "What's your IQ?" The guy says, "100." The robot then starts to talk about NASCAR, Budweiser and John Deere tractors.
The guy leaves, but finds it very interesting, so he thinks he will try it one more time. He goes back into the bar. The robot says, "What will you have?" The guy says, "Martini", and the robot brings him another great martini. The robot then says, "What's your IQ?" The guy says, "Uh, about 50." The robot leans in real close and says, "So, you people still happy you voted for Obama?"
FR does not allow advertising! Links to blogs is no more adversiting than links to other websites (like “Hotair” for example) are!
Blog pimps, those who are trying to get hits for their blog and people who take a MSM article and drehash it to their site are a nuisance.
They are ruining the enjoyment of this site.
Down with blog pimping.
If you are really trying to impart information, then post your info to FR. Do not link to your site.
I’ll call you on it. I think you are looking for hits. Right?
Too often they take a MSM article and either re-write and post it with a link to their blog ... or link to their blog with a link to the MSM article.
Either way, it’s blog pimping.
I can see you are among the worst of the blog pimps. There are a handful of you who are abusing the blog feature.
You’re ruining the enjoyment and purpose of this site.
The Blagojevich post was NAT a rehash of other blogs. It was a video link not posted yet!!!!!
“You steal content from other bloggers.”
No sir, I do not. Give me an example of this!
“I can see you are among the worst of the blog pimps. Youre ruining the enjoyment and purpose of this site.”
How so????? Check my previous threads, they speak for themsleves. I’ve had multiple compliments about my content. I take them seriously and am encouraged to do better because of them. So to be called “the worst” is purely venting on your part. Are you a conservative? Do you care about breaking news that affects this nation? Why are you here?
You steal content from other bloggers.
No sir, I do not. Give me an example of this!
Are you here to tell me today’s Blago thread was all original content?
That you didn’t cut/paste from other bloggers and news links?
Like I said. You steal content.
Blog pimping I can stand, but I draw the line at whiney passive agressiveness.
For everyone’s information:
FreeRepublic has many options that allow all users to view specific topic categories the way they want.
For example, if you want to view all categories, link to this page:
If you, however, dont want to see blogs, chit chat, religion, etc, link to this page:
If you are only interested in a specific subject, lets say 2nd Amendment Issues, you can also sort just by keywords like this:
The architecture of this site allows for the end user to see the content he wants in the way he wants more than most other forum platforms. This site also has XML feeds on which, you can use various widges around the web to actually feed you information you want. For example, if you want a feed of just breaking news articles, you can link to it using the RSS link at the bottom of the page like this:
You can even use these feeds to display custom content on a mobile device that is formatted best for that device if you like. For example, if you have a Blackberry, you can use this app with the RSS feed of the content you like.
Speaking of mobile devices, weve had a lot of reports from members that the architecture of this site allows it to work far better on most mobile devices than other forum platforms.
We have one member who has actually created a desktop AIR application he uses to give him a custom view of the sites content he wants to see using these feeds.
As you can see, you can do a lot with this site and filter what you want. This isnt a one-size fits all site. A little exploring and you can get exactly the content you want delivered to you the way you want.
Get lost, blog pimp. You are not welcome here.
LOL! Looking around I see you are overwhelmingly getting negative feedback about your posting.
Are you a conservative? Why are YOU here?
You’ve been here for a whole 10 weeks and want to tell us how to do things here and what we have to accept?
