Kudos from the Trivia Geek

I'm happy to share my kudos from the Tech Republic Trivia Geek. I know he was probably trying to drum up business for the site's own blog system, but I'll take it. I've reading the Geek Trivia column for several years now.

One of your fellow TechRepublic members has sent you a private message:

From: The Trivia Geek
Subject: Hello Debra
I appreciated the insightful comment on my blog last week, and noticed your
signature included a blogspot address. I liked what I read; it was a
mix of technical and personal, and very engaging.

So why aren't you reblogging on TR? Just take your blogger RSS feed, import
it into your TR blog, and suddenly your blog is in two places at once. We get
the benefit of your content, and you get our not insignificant boost to your
Google page rankings. Win win all around.

Debra, I wasn't JUST trying to add another blog to the TechRepublic fold. I only solicit reblogging from those I really, really like. Yours was only the second invite I've sent.

I also notice that you've started a TR blog, but aren't importing from Devans Cosmos. What's up with that? How can we boost your Google ranking if you don't reblog. Let us help!

PS--I love it when I'm quoted.
