Brightkite is described as Location-based social networking, which allows you to Discover who visits your favorite places.
I don’t have a lot of knowledge about Brightkite, but I do have access to 5 invites, if you would want to receive one. I know, you already belong to way too many social networking sites, and really don’t have time to get involved with another.
Well Brightkite seems to be a social networking site that you can use while you are out and about, and will enable you to actually physically meet some other users. I can also see myself using it when I am doing restaurant reviews for thegrubhound or while writing for our travelblog.
So far, I added Lizzie, and drubyt, who was the first person to request that I add him. I also uploaded the picture above that was taken by my pool, and geo tagged the photo. Well, it actually tags the photos with your current location, and I am not exactly sure if that is the same as Geotagging. It does place the picture on a map which marks your current location. I am not exactly sure if I can add photos once I get home and then adjust their map location. Nope, I believe you need to adjust your location to be where the picture was taken, and then you can upload the photo to make the location be more accurate.
You can also set your profile to private so that only your peeps will be able to see where you are taking that risque photo.
Well if anyone would like a Brightkite invite, let me know.
If you use Brightkite, what do you think of it, and do you have any tips?
Sorry I have not posted in a week or so. The past couple of months have been really bad for posting. I must be doing too many other things…got to stop Plurking.
Anyways, it is the end of the month, and I am compiling reports, and going through some directory links, and I am weeding out crap, clicking on the clients links in the directories when I find they have been added. Doing this as I have said before will often times(if the directory sorts by hits) move your link to the front category page, which often times is the only page in the category that is cached in Google. Some directories also have a “most popular link”, so clicking your link could also result in two links, even though this will only be temporary.
Linking Building Gripe
When I come to a directory and the directory redirects me to an advertisement(Check this Directory), I without a moments hesitation will delete these types of directories from my directory list.
This is the top commentators post for mid-July. I put this post out twice a month as a thank you for the top commentators. Only sites that have blogs or are blogs are eligible for the top three spots, as I do a brief review of one of each of the top three bloggers/writers posts.
Top Three Commentators
Our top commentator for Mid July, Wayne with 5 comments, has just started a new series about Blogger.com Support posts. Got questions about your Blogger.com blog, check out Wayne’s series, and see if he can answer your question.
Nicole Price who had 4 comments for this month, has another great Cam Corder post. Hmm, I just might have to snag one of those out dated Samsung’s Cam Corder that use tapes.
Eva White (4) asks a question about using the weight loss drug Phentermine. Anyone got any feedback for her?
From Treehugger.com Newsletter, I learned about Volkswagons’ limited edition 1-Liter Car, and via the comments in the post, I learned about the Aptera, which is a hybrid car made by a small company that gets well over 300 miles to the gallon, but will only be available in California, and is classified as a motorcycle. You Californians can check out their site and reserve one today!
Check out Waynes Meme post. Since several people have noted that I have not done many posts of late, I thought what the heck.
I also have a policy of not doing more than one meme a month, and have not done one in July so again, what the heck. For the meme, all you have to do is answer some questions and tag five other bloggers.
