I was walking to the grocery store this time last year when I first had the idea for Blog Trackr. I was thinking about what made Monstah Mash so special, and how I could help other bloggers like me.
I realized that directly consulting wasn’t the way to go. While the passion was certainly there, there are limits to what I can physically do. After all there’s only one of me and many blogs out there. Plus who would give their time and money to a 23 year old kid with a sports blog? So then I thought, why not automate it? Monstah Mash was a success because we curated a certain type of content that our readers came to expect. They wanted funny, so we gave them funny. We see it all the time though, radio stations, tv channels… people fall in love with niche providers, blogs included.
But that’s hard.
It’s hard searching the web for the right story. Trust me, these days any kid with an internet connection can start a blog and write about everything, leaving bloggers like me, well, a bit lost in the shuffle. Rather than write everything I had to write about the right things. I had to create truly remarkable content that would bring readers back for more.
Enter Blog Trackr.
How it works
With Blog Trackr you will be able to create a customized newsfeed for your blog at the touch of a button. It’s that simple. Gone are the days of searching the web for topics to write and sources to quote. We do all that for you. We use the Alchemy API powered by IBM’s Watson to analyze your blog’s content and metadata, then search the entire web for articles that are comparable. We then create a newsfeed of these articles for you to view–all in a matter of seconds. Imagine if, instead of searching the web, the web brought the news to you.
We imagined that, and we built it. What took days and back and forth for approval is done in an instant as we bring the news you want before you even know you wanted it. Through Blog Trackr creating a niche blog and cultivating a unique brand will be as effortless as clicking your mouse or touch pad, and we bring this to you 100% free of charge.
That’s right, it’s free and you can access it here.
This is just the beginning, we’ve got some pretty big plans for Blog Trackr. Early in 2017 we will take our code to create a Google Chrome extension so you can access it from your browser with ease. Next we want to revamp and refine our algorithm to make Blog Trackr the best tool in your chest when it comes to blogging. While a machine won’t be an exact clone for your wit and personality, we want to make this app as darn close as possible.
Down the line we aim to create a mobile app that will send notifications as new articles enter your feed keeping you updated on the go, as well as the ability to “thumb up” or “thumb down” articles to evolve your feed. What’s more we want to track your top performing posts and keywords giving you a marketing and blogging assistant like no other. We’ll need you help to get there though, and invite you to take the next step on this journey with us.
So kick back and relax with your drink of choice, because we’re going to take care of everything for you from here on out. It’s time to have fun blogging again.
