The idea is simple: unite the mobile bloggers to help each other build up traffic and (optionally) to generate advertising revenue for those that are interested.
Not everything is quite clear yet but the idea has been launched. I must say I have always been intrigued about the possibility of setting up an online contributors network so let’s get on with it! To me this sounds a more alive and adventurous initiative then most of the existing boring social networks. Besides mutual support and promotion I am positive we can expect probably more focused but diverse reading about mobile from such network.
Personally I’m not a big fan of blog-advertising but I thought this is a good reason to try Google AdSense and see how much money there is really involved.
Now the first initiative of the Mobile Blogger Network is The Carnival of the Mobilists. Based on The Carnival of the Capitalists idea. “Each week bloggers with a focus on mobile content or technology are encouraged to send what they feel is their best work to the blog that is hosting that week’s carnival.”
This week I haven’t been writing so mobile focused but I’m definately gonna participate soon.
