Alltop has decided to feature the MiniMatters blog in its “Top Video News” section, and we’re excited to be chosen! As you see here, their simple, yet attractive design is easy to navigate and use to keep up with video news.
Alltop, which Guy Kawasaki (marketing guru and former chief evangelist at Apple) co-founded, bills itself as a combination blog search engine and blog/headline aggregator. It aims to be an “online magazine rack” that helps you answer the question, “what’s happening in X,” where X is a particular field. In the case of the page that includes our blog, it’s what’s happening in the field of video news.
Alltop has more than 600 topics ranging, as their own site says, “from Autism to Zoology with Celebrities, Food, Shopping, Science, Psychology, Wine, Baseball, and Politics in between.” Some other racks that might interest readers of this blog include:
A great feature of Alltop is the personalized aggregation page. This enables you build a custom page of your favorite feeds, headlines and blogs. In fact, About.com calls MyAlltop “kind of like a twitter feed (without spam) and all on one page. It’s updated hourly, or so, instead of every second. MyAlltop is much easier to read than a Twitter feed.”
Alltop Is a Great Source for Video News
It’s really fun to be in good company as one of several authorities on what’s happening in video news. In fact, Alltop brought our attention to another site for video news, Simple Vlogging Tips. This blog run by a solo consultant who loves video blogging and keeps current on video news has some great insights, like a recent article on optimizing your titles on YouTube.
