Round 8 Update

Written by Tyme White on December 19, 2008

Just a quick update to let you guys know we’ll be making the announcement after New Year’s. I’m more than 1/2 way through the 2nd pass. I must say, it’s a darn good thing I took a second pass because many of you changed your sites around completely (which is a good thing, improvements are a good thing, right?). Thank you for making your sites easier to navigate and find your content. I’m sure your readers love you for that. Anyway, I’m looking at the first week in January tentatively. I need to nail down a date with the guys.

For those of you looking to increase traffic to your blog, I wrote an article about extending your blog on 3by9. End of the year is a good time to fiddle with your site. Start the new year off with a bang. Remember there are many tools available to assist you in achieving your blogging goals. Use them wisely.

Have a wonderful holiday (if you celebrate) and a safe New Year’s. Scrivs wishes that you guys would stop blogging. yes, that’s a joke – no one gets his jokes 🙁

SXSW Web Awards: Submissions

Written by Tyme White on December 5, 2008

If you know 9rules you know 9rules members usually attend SXSW. One of the nice things about SXSW is finding new sites via their awards (yes, I hear the parties aren’t too shabby either!). People can submit their sites and during SXSW maybe your site will be a winner.

I’m posting this because, as per the instructions:

Only Websites Launched in the Calendar Year 2008 Are Eligible to Enter (Except For “Classic” Category)
This year’s competition is open to all sites launched or redesigned in the calendar year 2008. The only exception is the “Classic” category, which consists of sites launched before January 1, 2008.

Let me be blunt: there are some new sites we’ve seen during 9rules rounds that have a good shot. Submit. Please. Do it. What? You’re still reading. Dang it! Go submit!

If you’d like more information, you can find it here. Adobe will be presenting the award this year. Submissions end December 19th at midnight (CST – NOT EST).

Good luck!!!!!
