Black Women in Europe Blog™ Anniversary Book: 10 years in the making

WATCHFIELD, EnglandJan. 10, 2017PRLog — In 2006 a blog was launched to celebrate the lives of the ordinary and extraordinary black women living in Europe. 10 years and several awards later, a book was created and dedicated to them.

Adrianne George, founder of the Black Women in Europe™ Blog, started the blog after moving to Sweden from Belgium. Originally from Washington, DC she sought a way to connect with like-minded black women across Europe. The blog spawned a social network, Linkedin group, Facebook groups, YouTube Channel and more.

“You will meet 11 Sheroes I have encountered over the past 10 years”, Adrianne George says. “Many of them have gifts for you contained within. They all have unique stories and talents to share”.

The Kindle book also contains quotes from women in the exclusive social network, the Black Women in Europe™: Power List – A List of Our Own© started in 2010, and introduces readers to two men who have supported this blog from 2006.

The book is exclusively available on all of Amazon’s websites including Amazon.co.uk- http://amzn.to/2jw4VL9. Search via ASIN: B01MT0CPE0.

2016 Power List: Black Women in Europe™ blog releases 7th “list of our own”

Black Women in Europe™: Power List 2016 – A List of Our Own©

OXFORDSHIRE, U.K.November 28, 2016 — The Black Women in Europe™ blog, created in 2006 by Adrianne George, released its 7th Black Women in Europe™: Power List 2016 – A List of Our Own© that pays tribute to 5 women in the categories of Arts, Culture, Entrepreneurship and Politics.

It is the 10th Anniversary of the Black Women in Europe™ Blog and our 7th Power List”, George beams. “The fact that the awardees continue to represent such a diverse pool of talent is indeed extraordinary”.

In 2010 the Black Women in Europe™ Blog released its first Power List naming 58 women across Europe in 6 categories. As in 2014 the 2015 list is scaled down to five to celebrate the sixth year of the list, the only one of its kind that celebrates the achievement of black women in Europe. The list, presented in alphabetical order, is intended to acknowledge powerful black women in Europe and to inspire others to reach their full potential.

The list does not aim to assess rank but rather to showcase influential women who, in some cases are well known and in others, are women who should be known. Since 2010 the list editor has been Adrianne George, with Mark Derek McCullough of Cuedos Design. This Power List is dedicated to McCullough who died this year. Julia Bryan, Managing Director of Vero Partners, provided the graphic design support.

If you use more than one micro-blog solution, Hello Txt is the only solution



I was having a hard time keeping up with all of my micro-blogging. When I pondered my dilemma on Plurk someone told me about HelloTxt.

HelloTxt lets you send status messages to 29 micro-blogginp sites.

You’ll still have to visit those sites to check your replies. Where’s the solution for that?

I don’t know if ping.fm is ping.fm, but gave up setting it up when their Facebook application link didn’t work.

The Death of BlogRush

 

After careful consideration, we have decided to shutdown the BlogRush service.  If you have the widget code on your blog you will need to remove it.

 

When BlogRush launched in late-2007 it spread like wildfire all over the Web.  Thousands of bloggers were talking about it and the service exploded to become one of the fastest growing free services in the history of the Web.  During the first year of the service it successfully served 3.4 Billion blog post headlines and the BlogRush widget could be found on blogs all over the world; even up until the moment we closed down the service.

 

BlogRush didn’t grow without its fair share of problems — from security issues to abusive users trying to ‘game’ the system to much lower click-rates than expected.  We also had some problems with trying to fairly control the quality of the network, and in the process made many mistakes in deciding what blogs should stay or go.  All of these issues, ultimately, limited the service’s full potential.

 

Our team worked very hard to try and build a service that would truly help bloggers of all sizes get free traffic to their blogs.  This was our primary focus.  Not once did we ever try to monetize the service with ads or anything else.  BlogRush never made a single penny in revenue.  We wanted to be able to help our users FIRST and then worry about monetizing the service later.  Unfortunately, the service didn’t work out like we had hoped.  (It happens.)

 

I want to say “Thank You” to all of the great bloggers that at least gave BlogRush a test to see if it would work for them.  We sincerely appreciate you giving the service a try.

 

We have received several offers & inquiries about acquiring BlogRush, but we are choosing not to go that route.  While many might think this is crazy, we truly feel it’s the ‘right’ thing to do for our users.  Believe it or not, it’s not always about the money.  In fact, BlogRush will have lost a small fortune when it’s all said and done, and it was by choice.  There were many things we could have done to monetize the service but we wanted to make sure it was going to benefit our users first.

 

Last but not least I want to say that I hope the failure of this service doesn’t in any way discourage other entrepreneurs from coming up with crazy ideas at 4AM (like I did with this one) and from “going for it” to just try and see if something will work.  Without trying there can be no success.  And as we all know, ideas are worthless without action.  The Web wouldn’t be what it is today without entrepreneurs trying all sorts of crazy ideas.

 

On behalf of the entire BlogRush team, we wish the best of luck to everyone with their own blogs, ideas, and crazy ventures.

 

Sincerely,

 

John Reese
