Blogging News on BlogDumps

All is well here on BlogDumps everything has been running very smooth… I know I shouldn’t say that but I did. Many new blogs have been submitted to the BlogDumps Directory and many more have been created here on BlogDumps.

BlogDumps has become real popular for creating a blog, BlogDumps Bloggers has been receiving a lot of traffic in the last few months like never before. It’s a good thing, I like to see that there are still a lot that want to blog and have fun or for profit or whatever they choose to do 🙂

I was doing some Lurking around the web and I read on CNN that Google is attempting one of the biggest changes to a site they have undertaken and guess which site. OK you don’t have to guess it’s Blogger! Sometime at the end of July it will become Google Blogs, yes you read that right It was reported on Mashable too.

Google is to retire Blogger & Picasa brands the Picasa change is news that is not any news that bloggers care about as much as Blogger. I wonder how this will effect the site and if the users will like the change. Google has rolled out many changes to the Blogger plate form lately and I haven’t read anything that bloggers like it or that users dislike the changes so we will have to wait and see.

BlogDumps Bloggers are here to stay and will not be re-branded any time soon for sure. We are just a small site but we are growing faster each year. In fact this month is our 5th year on the web. Yes BlogDumps will be Five this month. Time has gone so fast but we made it to the five year mark so as they say that’s when you know your here to stay! 🙂 So should we have another BlogDumps birthday party? I remember one year we had a birthday bash there were over a hundred comments and so many shenanigans the traffic was so high it shut down the server for a short period until we added more space on it. I think that was one of the best times we have had since we started the site.

Some of you have read the initial publication as June of 06 but the site was not really running for the first month it was under construction… Wait we are still under construction… Is there a website that is ever finished? I think we all like some change to our sites now and then.

BlogDumps is happy to grow slow and steady I don’t know what we would do if it exploded over night we are ready for that now but I think slow growth is much easier to deal with. It also leaves me some time to make the necessary changes and updates in an easy pace and not in a big hurry where mistakes can be made.

That’s it for this weeks news I hope you all had a great week the best part about today is tomorrow is Friday…TGIF!!!

He has a really fun blog – you should check it out! I would tell you more but then, well, just go look… you will be glad you did!

I have been poking around on the internet today, as usual, and I am checking out this new search engine called Bing!


We’ve heard about it on the news a lot, but I really don’t know much about it. It appears to be Microsoft’s answer to the Google search — do we need another Google?

So what is so different about this search engine? It looks to me, at first glance, to be just another search page. It does have a nice looking background (I think I had that as a desktop background, back in the 90’s…lol)

Ok, so I took the Bing tour. Of course they want you to bookmark their site to be your default search page or homepage… Then again you can do that right here on BlogDumps front page with the Google custom search on the top right of the page you get all the same results and do not have to leave BlogDumps.

I noticed that BlogDumps, when it was just a blog directory, was being used as a search site also. That’s when we decided to create the new front page of BlogDumps! It had the Google search in the middle of the page, but it looked like just another search page – there wasn’t much to it. So we decided if we were visiting Bloggers, what would I want out of a home page? We even used to have the “make this your home page” button on there, but then we thought that if Bloggers liked BlogDumps, they would bookmark it or make it their home page – no need for me to have another button there.

When looking at Bing, I didn’t see much more to it than the other six million search pages on the web but maybe I am just missing something?

I looked for tools for us webmasters and bloggers, they offer your standard sets of webmaster tools. OMG! Do I have to start worrying about getting indexed in another search engine?!? Now will I have a Bing/Google Page Rank? Do I need continuing education for this?

You can make sure your site is getting indexed and see where you stand. You can buy advertising (just like Google Adwords) but Bing does not offer a way to help make you money… no affiliate program. But you can put their search on your page and help make them money. I think I’ll stick with Google.

Seriously, Bing is just ANOTHER Search Engine! Why all the fuss on the news?

Have a great Thursday Night!
