Well, I don’t really approve of this, but it is pretty funny – this person has only voted for┬ 1┬ website in their entire month on StumbleUpon, but has 67 fans. How did they do it? I think the picture is the (unfortunate)┬ answer. [UPDATE: a commenter notified me that this member is up to 69 fans].
How did I find this person? Well, ‘Poohbaby‘ (what the heck does THAT mean?) messaged me as shown below. My inbox on SU is remarkably spam free, and I hope this isn’t the beginning of a trend.
I know you love Allsux, whether it’s rants or advice or random images and┬ videos – it’s why you keep coming back! However, there are some other great blogs and bloggers out there who deserve recongition, many of which and whom present more coherent information┬ than this site. Here are a few very different blogs, each worth looking into for their own reasons:
Julie┬ Anne┬ Bonner is sensible, honest and personable blogger making money online, sharing insights with and responding to her readers. Her advice on making money online is both personal and professional. John Lampard of Disassociated.com is an old-school blogger with a very sleak and simple site and solid posts on a range of subjects. He has no ads on-site at the moment – a rarity in the blogosphere – and┬ has recently written a piece on the┬ pros and cons of blog comments. WallStreetFighter is yet another very different kind of blog. Ranging from crass humor and cool facts, this site has a little bit of everything.
Even better, each of the above bloggers is fun to interact with and interested in meeting other bloggers and responsive so comments. So, don’t be shy, check out out that sounds interesting to you and be sure to leave a comment!
This site rox the sux, which, according to the Urban Dictionary┬ means it “excells in that which is undesireable” and “contains undesireable characteristics.” It is also “believed to have undesireable origins.” I think this fits all of the above.
Certainly this blog is really good at being bad – some posts are so confusing even I don’t know what I’m talking about. It also contains┬ flaws left and right┬ – just look around at the haphazard and ever-growing categories and terrible design!┬ Worst of all,┬ the only reason I started this site was because I realized that the domain wasn’t taken and I have a 6-letter-domain fetish. Yet here it is, with regular readers and high ranks all around. How crazy is that? Uhh, thanks!
The internet is filled to the brim with Google AdSense – it often seems like the stuff is on every page (a few small ads on this one included). The web is also full of bloggers blogging about blogs. However, one clever blogger has figured out a way to actually make a unique and highly specific niche out of these seemingly ubiquitous topics by blogging about Google AdSense.
What I find particularly interesting is that she is starting from absolute scratch and documenting the entire process. Many bloggers who are newer to the game talk big but are easily revealed if they are only┬ not truly knowledgable.┬ ┬ This blogger actually (almost scientifically) describes each and every step along the way. Somehow, I find both the specificity of the blog’s content and the honesty of its author quite refreshing in a blogosphere full of blogs about making money.
In the interest of full disclosure: this blogger actually write a review of Allsux.com that (both for its depth and honesty) will earn the blog multiple incoming links! However, this post reflects my own opinions of that blog, and these multiple links are freely given. Fascinating endeavor, look forward to tracking it (ouch did I really just make that pun?).
Most people expect their whole world to be slowly digitized, but what would happen if we ran reality in reverse? Something to think about:
Reality Desktop – The most popular videos are a click away
There are a lot of ways to get paid online, but I have earned by far the most money writing short articles for Associated Content. How does it work? Well, Associated Content pays between $3 and $50´┐Ż per 400-word article on virtually any subject, so long as it doesn’t duplicate content they already have. Not only that: they pay a per-page-view bonus after the article is published – so you keep earning money every time it is viewed! Sound easy? Well it is – you just make sure no one has written on a subject, from breaking news to obscure hobbies, and then write it and submit it for cash.

With buzz in the air about a Google PageRank update in the works, now is the time to get some incoming links and boost your PR! It’s really pretty simple: write a post (100+ words) linking to Allsux.com and to one specific post you think is particularly terrible (or awesome). Leave a comment on this post. It will be moderated, so just specify ‘private’ if you don’t want it to show.
In return, I will write a post linking back to everyone who reviews this site with a short blurb about the site and its content. Bonus: it’s a fair bet (based on traffic, such as the recent 16,000+ hits from the Fark main page) that this site is actually PR5 in disguise, it just doesn’t show yet because we are pre-update. So, you’ve got a PR4 or maybe even a PR5 link – just for writing your mind! Don’t like the site? Feel free to trash it. Not sure where to start? Here is a handful of some of our most viewed and controversial posts.
Extra extra bonus: One lucky winner will get a second free blogroll link from a site that already has PR5 showing on it. This will go to the person with the most creative, interesting or funny post – whether or not it trashes or praises this site!

Except for a few spikes from disasters (which Bush largely botched) the President has had a steadily decreasing approval rating virtually since day one. I for one don’t buy the conspiracy theories that suggest he has orchestrated world disasters, but it isn’t hard to see how these have benefited him by slowing his steady decline. If things continue at this rate, he’ll reach zero in no time.
