There's a fairly new site on the web that is exciting for new bloggers. It's called Seekopia, and what makes it unique is that it combines blogging, social networking, and advertising. Just by having a blog on Seekopia, the blogger is making money because they automatically own a share of the advertising. The type of ads used are both context and adverts, which can be custom ads chosen by the blogger.
This is a perfect way for newcomers to create a free blog. The more you write, the more you earn, and that's pretty cool. It's easy for others to follow your blog, and for you to follow your favorite blogs as well. You even had a lot of control over what you read in that you can blacklist posts, tags, and individual bloggers that you'd prefer not to see.
In just their first 40 days, Seekopia already has 137 bloggers on board. That's a great start, and I'm planning on checking it out myself.
