We found a new buzz generator the other day - a website to help you get the word out on your blog. Buzzfuse.com helps you spread the word about your content, whether it be a blog post, photo, video or more by broadening your reach, creating an interaction with an specific audience (like dogs!), and reporting mechanisms to help you understand your reach.
The sign up was fairly easy, although it took a while to receive the email confirmation. Once signed I updated my profile, then submitted a post from my main blog that I thought would be interesting to readers. I edited the post, inserting the code and widget (that shows up in the post)- which is how the site finds my submission. I used the free submission service, but there is a paid service with enhanced features.
Could be another interesting way to get blog more traffic and a bit more notice!
