BlogRush is Shut Down - Bye Bye!

A couple of my posts here on this site have been dedicated to "BlogRush," a program that promised to bring all bloggers more traffic, and related traffic at that, and everyone would benefit. Well first I wrote about how BlogRush was a great idea that would help us all get traffic, then I wrote about how BlogRush kicked us out for no reason, and never let us back in. Well now I'm writing to say that BlogRush has said screw it and just shut down. I figured since the "big timers" like John Chow and Shoe Money said that BlogRush was going to be great, it would surely be useful to some degree. You just put their widget on your site, and they exchange traffic with other relevant sites...seems great, except the fact that the started getting spammed, which most programs like this do, and then they went manually accepting sites into their program, which sounded good, but somehow it got all of our sites kicked out, with no reason or explanation, and they were never allowed back in. So yeah, farewell blogrush, the minute they decided to kick out hard working people like ourselves and couldn't get your shit together, it was all downhill from there. So BlogRush goes to the cemetery along with other programs that will supposedly help you skyrocket your business, as we keep on plugging away with straight up hard work, and the use of the everyday methods that are out there for everyone to use like link building and some social networking sites when needed. Maybe someday a program that actually works and helps will be created, but BlogRush, you are officially NOT it. Returns Home, and The Journey Continues.

It's been a few months since I've updated here, and there's no better time for an update being that I recently was able to secure my original website,, after having sold it a few years ago, which i wrote of in my very first post here on Ultra Business Ramblings. As explained in my first blog, I sold after accepting an offer from an interested party who had seen the work and presence in search engines we had achieved with it. Well I guess after a couple of years, the person did nothing with it, it became available again, and we have now secured it and plan to bring it back to it's original level of success, and even further. This is a big thing to make a nice profit off hard work on a site, then be able to bring our flagship site back into our family of business sites.

Aside from the return of MuellerDeals, it's been more of the same as far as keeping focus on building and improving money making sites, and getting college classes under my belt. College is still something to do on the side to help me through this building period until sites are making sufficient money. So that's my Business Ramble for now, I'll be back in the next few hours or so with news on the BlogRush, which I've posted on before here, but I'll only be posting one more time on it from the looks of things.
