I love my Typepad blog. I always suggest Typepad to my fellow teachers when they consider starting a class site.

Lisa @ Boondock Ramblings

I think my blog is my favorite too....*hee* *hee* OK. OK. I'm also a fun of Juggling Life at

I like my own blog, too! I tackle parenting issues, recap Baby-sitter's Club books, and talk about baking.

I also really like Not that you asked ( Emily has been blogging for a efw years, so it's not new, but it's well worth a read!

A personal favorite typepad blog of mine: Whatever...

This is a great blog on Public Relations and Technology. Expect a good dose of content relevant to current affairs tied into new media. Its bloggers are seasoned for their age and are frank in their accounts. Whatever... posts the kind of content you want to read, regardless of your industry.

I will follow the herd here and say "I love my TypePad Blogs" too.. My blogs are hyperlocal sites for the beach resort community I live in - and

I am a ProBlogger and evangelize TypePad to anyone that will listen. I make my money blogging so I need to spend all my time posting, not fussing with the technical stuff. TypePad does it all for me so I can focus 100% of my time on building the sites and business. Thanks TypePad!


I personally like my own site but I may be a bit biased there. And I know it needs more work and more of me in it. My boyfriend says I am boy-i-fied which I think reflects in my site. I have tried to be a-sexual lol. But people do like to see one's own personality within a blog and I have yet to learn how to put ME forward. However there is a fabulous blog I like but do not understand, I think it is because it jumps out at me but it is not a typepad blog I think.

I first heard of typepad because of a brilliant blog - I'm not sure if she's still a typepadder - but that's how I first signed up for my own blog, and now I have several... and - my company's blog.

I'll admit to being mildly jealous at all the comment traffic Patti over at 37days is able to generate... she has a huge and ravenous following which I can aspire to only in my dreams!!

I have a client who recently started a blog on skin care. Fern Burg is an esthetician and she's writing posts about how to care for your skin and why it's so important to your overall health.

Naturally, her blog is built on TypePad:

Blog on!

My suggestion is for typepad to create their list of qualified typepad blog candidates and then make a voting poll for typepad bloggers to vote ^^..

I guess it would also be great if typepad will make a forum.
A typepad forum for us typepad bloggers to interact.

Anyone interested for a link exchange? please visit my blog to see if we have related niche ^^.
thanks and goodluck to all of us ^^


My favorite new TypePad blog is Origami Mommy ( about crafts and simple living with children in Tokyo. It has beautiful photography, wonderful writing, and lots of excellent tutorials.

Rachel Anne

I've often wondered why Typepad doesn't feature more great blogs...surely there are more than just the same handful we've seen featured for months and months? The best sales tool Typepad could use is to show examples of great blogs, and it's probably the only complaint I would have about your great service. When I wanted to update my own blog, I had to GOOGLE "great typepad blog designs" to find was not easy to get ideas, and it seems like it would make excellent marketing sense to show just how good you are!!

My own blog, has been a wonderful experience and Typepad has been a perfect blog service for me.


As a gamer, I'm always keeping my eyes peeled for other gaming bloggers within the TypePad network, especially since two of my top favorite game writers keep their blogs here.

If you're a gamer and are looking for some intelligent discourse on videogaming and culture, don't miss out on Acid for Blood ( by Regina Buenaobra and The Brainy Gamer ( by Michael Abbott.

If anyone wants to suggest more TypePad gaming blogs, my ears are open!

Like many of the other comments, my favorite blog is my very own typepad blog, I'm avid scuba diver and nature/wildlife/underwater photographer. I blog about my travels photographing the world through my eyes. Many of my underwater photographs have won awards in various publications. I love Typepad Blogging system. I am glad to see this newest addition to the Typepad family. I am starting to build a nice clientele through my blogging and my own Facebook page. If I am lucky, maybe I can get on Typepad's Facebook page.


MELANCHOLIA is definitely "the weblog with the bleeding heart".

I love my blog .. and I am still working on it .. lol

Jean Boggio

I, too, love my blog, focusing on life in Maine and older women's issues. The journey continues and is ever-changing.

My favorite Typepad blog is The Happiness Project: This was one of the first blogs I ever read and when I was reading it I was inspired to start my own blog. The first thing I did when I decided to start my blog was to look at The Happiness Project to see what kind of blog formatting it used. When I noticed it was Typepad, I signed up right away and launched my blog, Positively Present ( Since then (and this was less than six months ago!) I started another blog, Hope Springs Internal ( I've really enjoyed using Typepad and I'm very excited about the new version. :)

Diana Pritchard

I don't currently have a blog, but would like to start one.

My favorite typepad blog is Urban Mama at She's my sister and I think her blog is fantastic. She's the one who has inspired me to try blogging.

She writes about family, motherhood, marriage, movies (she's a movie reviewer for common sense media), and grief (our mother passed away last October).

One of my fave TypePad blogs is Wonderland, by Alice Taylor: It's a cool gaming blog that talks about virtual worlds, social gaming, and occasionally she posts pics of gaming related crafts she finds on Etsy. Her blog has been a Featured TypePad blog at least twice (I looked through the archives!), so I know TypePad loves it as well. ;-)

Thanks, Tiff. ;-D


One of my favorite blogs happens to be I find that the overall design is really nice, and this site has been generating over 1000 daily visitors... not bad for a newbie that has been blogging for only 9 months.

Typepad is great for bloggers and web designers. They support team is what really stands out.

Kate Bassett, Alison DeCamp, Deborah King

I have to echo Ron with regard to TypePad support. We tried BlueHost and WordPress and TypePad has the best support we've encountered. That said, like everyone else, we love our blog the best. And isn't that how it should be?

Hello typepad bloggers. i have something to share to you which is very important for us bloggers/webmasters. This is about Increasing our backlinks on technorati. Im sure most of you know already that backlinks are very important if you want to have an excessive amount of traffic from search engines right?.

For those who dont know what backlink is. Backlinks are links that point from other website to your website. Most search engines like google will give more credit to your site if they notice that other sites link to yours.

If you have so many backlinks from other sites, and if google will notice that, im sure they always do. Search engines will reward you with more traffic for certain keywords on the search engine. And that is very good for us.

There's a movement recently created for the purpose of increasing our backlinks on technorati which technorati authority allows. This movement has been spreading already around the web and the sooner you join the more backlinks you will receive. To participate on this movement and to spread the word. Please visit my blog to know more about this and to join.

That practice exploits a weakness in the Trackbacks (Backlink) system. It's artificially inflating your blog's importance in Technorati rankings and in search engines. I don't see this as a practice that any credible blogger should participate in. If people want to increase their Technorati authority (Which, seriously? Technorati isn't really important anymore. Technorati stopped being good years ago.), readership numbers, and search engine rankings, they should do it properly: write good material (have a unique voice, etc.), engage with their commenters, comment on other blogs, and do creative things to raise their visibility, etc.

Thanks for the note brinstar ^^ I just want to let you know that this is not a practice. This is just a way of trying to increase backlinks. ways that can increase possible traffic to your site. And its up to you whether you participate or not. you have your own choice.
As to being credible, you can't judge in right away.

Yeah, I know that the most key ingredient to drive traffic to your site is through writing good content. but writing good content is just not enough. you must also know how to market your blog. What's the use of good contents if no one will ever know about it?

I've seen so many blogs, known so many good writers with good contents in their blogs but have poor traffic because they dont know how to spread the word. they dont know how to market their blog. If you really want to drive excessive amount of traffic to your site, or simply just traffic, you need to consider all possible ways to make that happen.

This idea is a good way to start for those who are still new in blogging. As to your part, you have build a good amount of traffic already so there's no more problem in your part on marketing your blog because those readers of yours can be the one to spread the word for you.

Do you know why other blogs, even though they're old already still have a poor traffic? or building traffic slowly.? While some new blogs even though new have already build a certain good amount of traffic in just a short period of time? Its Because it differs on how bloggers introduce their blogs to the world. If you want to make your blogging successful. You need to apply this two principle. Writing good content and Marketing those contents. This will be the same advice you will hear if you ask any professional bloggers.

For me, i consider every ways possible that will bring good for my blog. As long as i dont hurt or offend anyone. ^^

^^ i have just receive a bad comment in my blog post about this matter. ^^ Its so rude ^^ and to know that it came from a man. He is so anonymous ^^ yet i was able to track him ^^ i know who's the one who leaved the comment ^^ but i respect his privacy and opinion ^^.

I could have edited his comment through typepad's innovative feature to edit comments. i should have replace "sux" to (rocks) haha ^^ but i didn't, i just deleted the comment ^^ very nice. thanks to typepad. this is possible. This is one of the reasons why i love typepad ^^. I just want to ask those who are against the idea ive shared. if you don't like it then please just ignore it ^^. Just don't leave comments that might hurt feelings. ^^ I'm a Woman you know ^^. Cheers to all and Keep blogging ^^

Kim McMillan

Of course I LOVE my blog.....

I am someone who KNOWS very little about the computer so for me, it was a perfect choice to go with Typepad as it's so user friendly.
Having said that, I would like to kick things up a notch as I feel like I've been in a rut with my blog.
I do visit Ali Edwards typepad blog every day. I am partial to Typepad because it's my first:)

Hello guys, i just wanna share you this important matter. I've heard so many cons and pros with regards to typepad features and service. Yet all this concerns are being shared only through everything typepad. I guess it would be more convenient for us typepad users if typepad can provide us a FORUM where in we can interact with each other, make discussions, share our opinions and post our queries.

forum is great because everything is being categorized and for that, it is more organized and appropriate for sharing questions and knowledge.

Also, some typepad users who are knowledgeable about blogging
and about using the typepad features can reach others easily and
might be able to help. By this, we can get answers more faster. Typepad support team is not always online but if we have a forum,
other knowledgeable typepad users all over the world can help others.

I have already suggested this thing to typepad but i think they will not consider my suggestion if im alone so I have created a poll on this matter to hear your sides about this.

Lets cast our votes people, This is for the sake of our community. You can cast your votes at Thank you and more power to us.
