Let’s take a break and relax. Take a cup of coffee and do some reading around the make money online blogosphere… AND bombard other bloggers’ hot post!
David, owner of bloggynetwork has a very cool article on what things you should do before launching your own blog network. I gotta admit that he has hit almost every detail of it, and man it’s really arranged to perfection. What’s better than learning from a blog network owner?

Your job is to give advice, tips and constructive critique to the blogger. I’ll give you a few areas that you might want to divide your advice into.
Well, that’s all for now. I’d spread the anthrax next time! :twisted:
