John Reese, the idea guru behind the free traffic generator called Blogrush, has decided to shut down the website over the next 24 hours. He has said while Blogrush is servicing a few million impressions a day, he doesn’t see things improving for the users. So if you have the Blogrush widget code on your website, you will need to remove it.
Unfortunately I have to agree with John on this one. I have been using Blogrush for about five months now and have not seen a ton of traffic from it.
I know this is a bummer for John to see one of his ideas crash and not go the way he planned, but the positive and more important lesson to take away from this is that he took ACTION. He came up with this Blogrush idea at 4am and got the ball rolling. He didn’t just sit on it thinking about all the ways it wouldn’t work, he just got started and figured it all out along the way. A true entrepreneur.
I want to thank John for the idea, implementing it and giving it everything he had to make it work, because although I didn’t get the traffic I thought would come from it, I did receive visitors coming to my site from just putting up the widget. Thanks again John.
Go make a difference
