i think blogging can also consider as a social networking but it is just in smaller scale if compare to friendster, flickr or orkut.


I find Rosen's statement to be a refreshing "counter" to what Doc Searls has been saying about branding. I know where he is going with it, and have heard the story about cattle now a few times. But Rosen's point is 100% valid. Bloggers build a "brand" - that being themselves, their name, their reputation. Just as Sony was thought to be "the product" by many people when it came to consumer electronics, bloggers can, and do, the same thing. Bloggers aren't sitting at home in our pajamas trying to make a brand for ourselves - we are doing out thing and sharing knowledge and thought processes that we have in kind of an open source world. At the same time, our words, when taken seriously or not, are "attached" to us and lead to people coming to us for information or confrontation in the future. As thought leaders or conveyors, bloggers have a personal "brand." There are so many ways to define having one, and this is a simple way of doing so.

You Can Laugh at Money Worries - if You Follow This Simple Plan!
This is an opportunity for people who would like to work at home and
have computer experience and are willing to invest time to get the
lifestyle you have been wanting!
READ ON: Read this entire message carefully! (Print it out or
download it.)
I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it. A little
while back, I was browsing through news groups and came across an
article similar to this that said you could make thousands of
dollars within weeks with only an initial investment of $6.00!
So I thought, Yeah right, this must be a scam, but like most of us,
I was curious, so I kept reading. Anyway, it said that you send only
$1.00 to each of the 6 email addresses stated in this article.
You then place your name and address at the bottom of the list at
the #6th position and email it to your friends as well as post this
message (with your email address in the list) to at least 200
newsgroups.(There are thousands) No catch, that was it. So after
thinking it over, and talking to a few people first, I thought about
trying it. I figured, what have I got to lose except $6.00, right?
So I invested the measly $6.00.

Well GUESS WHAT!! Within days, I started getting money coming into
my Pay Pal account! I was shocked! I figured it would end soon, but
the money just kept coming in.

In my first week, I made about $25.00, which means that 25 people
joined the group after they saw my posted messages. By the end of
the second week I had made a total of over $1000.00! In the third
week I had over $10,000.00 and it¹s still growing.

This is now my fourth week and I have made a total of just over
$42,000.00 and it¹s still coming in rapidly. It¹s certainly worth
$6.00, and the few minutes it took to join Paypal. I have spent more
than that on the lottery!

Let me tell you how this works and most importantly, why it works.
Also, make sure you print a copy of this article NOW, so you can get
the information off of it, as you need it. I promise you that if you
follow the directions EXACTLY, that you will start making more money
than you thought possible by
doing something so easy!

SUGGESTION: Read this entire message carefully! (Print it out or
download it.)

Follow the simple directions and watch the money comes in! It¹s that
easy. It¹s legal. And, your investment is only $6.00.

IMPORTANT: This is not a rip-off; it is not indecent; it is not
illegal; and it is virtually no risk-it really works! If all of the
following instructions are adhered to, you will receive
extraordinary dividends.

AGAIN, PLEASE NOTE: Follow these directions EXACTLY, and $20,000 or
more can be yours in 4 to 6 weeks. This program remains successful
because of the honesty and integrity of the participants.
Please continue its success by carefully adhering to the
instructions. In this business your product is not solid and
tangible, it¹s a service. You are in the business of developing
Mailing Lists.

Many large corporations are happy to pay big bucks for quality
lists. However, the money made from the mailing lists is secondary
to the income, which is made from people like you and me asking to
be included in that list.
Here are the 4 easy steps to success:

Take a few minutes to join Paypal:
paypal.com The Internet's most trusted Internet banking
system for your future income. When creating your Paypal account
make sure you use the same Email address as your user name in the
list below so people can send money to your account.

Once you have a Paypal account running; use Paypal to post $1 to
EACH of the 6 Email Addresses below because you pay people with an
email address in Paypal.
To do this you may need to use a credit card, which is very easy,
and secure so nobody but Paypal may see it. If you don¹t have a
credit card show this great lucrative offer to someone that has one
and get them to help you pay the $6. What you are doing is creating
a service. This is absolutely legal!
You are requesting a legitimate service and you are paying for it!
Like most of us I was a little skeptical and a little worried about
the legal aspects of it all. But I looked around and did some
homework and found it was perfectly legal.
Here are the 6 individual Email addresses that you have to send $1
to through Paypal for this to work properly and for you to receive
money. (If you don't send the money and decide to post the message
with your name in it anyway, Paypal will instantly pick this up and
terminate your account, immediately,
besides the other penalties!!
If you did this you could get into serious trouble because it is
fraud. (So follow the instructions and post the $6 and you will make
lots of money with no hassles.)Now send $1 to each of these
following email - addresses through your paypal account: (Just in
case you still haven't one yet, use this link to open one in your
and pay $1 to each the following 6 email- addresses In the message box type in Please add me

to your mailing list - NOTE: if a
paypal account on the list is closed, just skip it and go on to the
next email in the list.

Here is the latest set of emails:

1. [email protected]
2. [email protected]
3. [email protected]
4. [email protected]
5. [email protected]
6. [email protected]

Now take the #1 Email Address off the list that you see above, move
the other Email Addresses up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc.) and
add Your Email Address as number 6 on the list.

Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as close
to the original as possible. Now, post your amended article to at
least 200 newsgroups (there are thousands of groups). And email your
message to as many people you can But remember, the more you post
and email the more money you make! This is perfectly legal!
If you have any doubts, refer to Title 18 Sec. 1302; 1241 of the
Postal Lottery laws.
Keep a copy of these steps for yourself and, whenever you need
money, you can use it again and again.
PLEASE REMEMBER: This program remains successful because of the
honesty and integrity of the participants and by their carefully
adhering to the directions. You are simply paying into a money
making chain of participants and if the chain is broken you are
taking away from the money making opportunities of someone else. So, as each person
who joins the family and the directions are followed, six members
will be reimbursed for their participation as a List Developer with
one dollar each.
You then insert your Email Address into the list and it will move up
geometrically. So that when your name reaches the #1 position you
will have potentially received thousands of dollars into your
What an opportunity for only a total of $6.00!! $1 for each of the
first six people listed above. To begin with, please send you’re
joining fee now and then add your own Email Address to the list and
you¹re in business!
Use Netscape or Internet Explorer and try searching for various
newsgroups (on-line forums, message boards, chat sites, discussions.)
Log on any search engine like yahoo.com, google.com, altavista.com,
excite.com, etc., then search with the subject "millionaire message
board; or; money making message board; or; employment message board;
or making discussions; or ''money making forum; or; business
message board; etc.
You will find thousands & thousands of message boards. Click on them
one by one and you will find the option 'post a new message'. Then
Post this article as a 'new message' by highlighting the text of
this letter and selecting copy then paste from the edit menu.
Fill in the Subject, this will be the header that everyone sees as
they scroll through the list of postings in a particular group,
click the post message button.
You're done with your first one! It only takes about 60 seconds to
complete postings on message boards after you catch on.
BUT YOU HAVE TO POST A MINIMUM OF 200! That is it you will begin
receiving money in your account from around the world within days!
Now the WHY part out of 200 postings: Say I receive only 5 replies
(a very low example). So then I made $5.00 with my name at #6 on the
Each of the 5 persons who just sent me $1.00 make the MINIMUM 200
postings, each with my name at # 5 and only 5 persons respond to
each of the original 5, this is an additional $25.00 for me.
Now those 24 each make 200 minimum posts with my name at #4 and only
5 replies each. This brings in an additional $125.00. Those 125
persons turn around and post the MINIMUM 200 with my name at #3 and
receive 5 replies each, I will make an additional $625.00.
Ok, now here is the FUN part, each of those 625 people post a
MINIMUM of 200 letters with my name at #2 and they receive 5 replies
each. That just made me $3,125.00!!! Those 3125 persons will all
deliver this message to 200 newsgroups with my name at #1 and if
still 5 persons per 200 react, I will receive an additional
$15,625.00!! With an investment of only $6.00!!
A - M - A - Z - I - N - G -!!
When your name is no longer on the list, you just take the latest
posting in the newsgroups, and send out another $6.00 to Email
Addresses using Paypal on the list, putting your name at number 6
again. And start posting again.
The thing to remember is that thousands of people all over the world
are joining the Internet and reading these articles everyday.
JUST LIKE YOU ARE NOW!! So, can you afford $6.00 to see if it really
People have said what if the plan is played out and no one sends
you the money? So what! What are the chances of that happening when
there are tons of new honest users and new honest people who are
joining the Internet & newsgroups everyday and are willing to give
it a try??
