Looking for other technology/gadget blog owners

I am starting a new regular feature over on Coolest Gadgets where each week we will feature excerpts of the best gadget posts from across the web and ask our readers to vote which they think is the coolest, thus creating a Coolest Gadget of the week.

I think this will be a great way to show readers different blogs that may interest them, build traffic and relationships between blog owners and find out what people think cool is really cool.

So I’m looking for relevent site owners to take part, provided it’s has original and relevent posts I do not care about traffic or age so it will be a great way for new and old tech sites to get a bit of publicity.

If interested either leave a comment of get in touch and I’ll send you further details. If you have any ideas or suggestions on improvements please again let us know. Thank you.

  1. **Jumps in**

    This is in fact great news!
    I have to be totally honest here, and after following CG for a long time now, I’ve decided to create a gadget category at ????

    CG as always been an inspiration, and one day, a few months ago, I’ve decided to start that category and post about “car gadgets”.
    I have almost 80 pending posts with the coolest, weirdest, funniest stuff for cars you can find in the world. (check my latest post at the car gadget category)

    I’d love to be part of that contest, so if you approve my site, please get in touch with me!

    Thx a lot!

  11. Hi Al! It’s a great Idea for a A-list Blog Like CG to do weekly link-love. It’s been a famous stuffs in MMO blogs and It’s my first time indulging in Gadgets Niche.

    I’m do my own style link-love too called link-o-sphere. Will be featuring lots about CG and other interesting story. πŸ™‚



  12. Al,

    We’d be interested, keep us updated please.


    Gaj’s last blog post..AMD’s next-generation Turion Ultra Processor – The Griffin

  13. Thanks everybody for the interest so far, I’ve written how it will work over on How to enter Coolest Gadget of the Week. All feedback and entries very welcome, I’m looking at doing the first one next Friday.

  14. It looks great Al, Is post date and not submission date the best way to go about choosing the post you select?

    Off to hunt down some more cool gadgets – lol

    Gaj’s last blog post..Play Rabbids with your…ass?

    • The only time date would come into it is when 2 different blogs submit a post about the same gadget. We would then choose the blog that broke the story first rather than told us first, seems fairer that way to me.

      If you have a blog that has multiple posts per day you’ll be best of submitting your favorite on the Thursday as you can only submit one per week and you want to choose the one with the best chance.

      Make sense?

  15. That’s a super idea!! I already have CG in my feedreader and will enjoy seeing the best of the best spotlighted.

    Of course, you’ll specialize in coffee gadgets, right? πŸ™‚
