Word of mouth is still the number one and preferred way of marketing. First of all because it's genuine and carries a good recommendation, and secondly it's a whole lot cheaper than normal marketing channels.
While searching and surfing around the blogospere I came across a wonderful site called Blogengage.
Blogengage was started and is run by Brian, who has done a wonderful job so far. But what makes Blogengage so special?
As the name suggests, Blogengage is about bloggers networking and engaging other bloggers. It is truly about social networking.

It's a chance to get involved in the community that others have built.
Without credibility not many are going to take you seriously. Blogengage is a chance for you to build up that credibility. You have the opportunity to let a growing base of bloggers know about you. It is an opportunity for you to show others how serious you are about blogging.
Blogengage is a great place for resources and information. Looking for an idea for a blog post, need a question answered, then blog engage offers you the opportunity to gain that knowledge and information.

Looking to make money, well then Blogengage might be that place that can help.
