These days, I am testing BlogRush, an ad network built by John Reese of Income.com. I want to state from the beginning, that BlogRush is not breaking news. Everybody has wrote about it. Below I will write my own input and that’s it. Moreover, I will try to get a few hundred referrals with the help of the Internet God. :)
BlogRush is your average pyramidal (meaning you can have sub-affiliates and sub-sub-affiliate and … you get the idea) banner / link exchange network, just that it’s presented in a Web 2.0 form: a widget, which you can put in your blog’s sidebar, or in your website’s utility spot.

Robert Scoble tells you how he manages to read his 622 feeds every single morning …
He also mentions what are the most important aspects of a story, before he clicks to read it.
Remember when Feedburner aquired Blogbeat ? Well, they are ready to make a blog stats/analytics plugin of their own, and release ot to the public, free.
Since Performancing will close their Metrics service pretty soon (or make it open-source, although I doubt that), and since Google is not ready yet with their MeasureMap service (I emailed them about a beta test account, or an aproximate release date, and they didn’t had any info for me, except “it’s coming”), the Feedburner stats will be your best choice.

FYI, just a quick note to everyone subscribed to my blog’s feeds, please change it to reflect the one I am using now, at FeedBurner:
There are about 150 of you guys only in Bloglines (using about 4 different feeds).
I’m going to take advantage of this post to also let you know that I changed some category names and structure, therefore some previous permalinks will no longer work. So you might want to recheck your bookmarks and links towards my blog.
Yesterday whilst updating my feeds in Bloglines, I was thinking: hey I could use a single feed that had all my other feeds.

I’ve been using Bloglines for some time now.
It’s the most useful and inovative online feed reader that I could find. When I did my test, the only real contestants were Google Reader, Rojo, Newsgator and Feedlounge (paid, but with a 24 hour trial). They were not even close to Bloglines in my opinion.
