Grant Bloggers: Get Noticed, Get Alltop!
Fantastic news! JM Grants’ Get Grants Do Good blog is now featured in Alltop! We are proudly displaying our “As Featured in Alltop” badge on our site. It is quite an honor.
Why is it an honor, you ask?
Well, Alltop is one of the most popular and respected content aggregators on the web, and it was co-founded by Guy Kawasaki.
Why is this important to the Grant Pro (and anyone looking for Grant News)?
I am happy to tell you why it matters.
The topic ‘Grants’ is brand spanking new on Alltop. In fact, I requested that they add the topic because I didn’t think that Get Grants, Do Good! (JM Grants blog) fit neatly under the ‘nonprofit’ or the ‘fundraising’ topic. So, I submitted a request to add a new topic.
~ You know that feeling you get when your hear that you have won the grant award? (Ah…bask in it…)
Well, that is how I felt when I found out that we, Grant Information Curator Extraordinaires & Grant News Seekers, had our own topic (and that Alltop chose to feature JM Grants in that new topic).
~ You know that second feeling, “take action”, that you get from the adrenaline rush you get upon hearing the grant award announcement ?
Well, that is how I feel now. My first step is to notify all my partners and collaborators.
Alltop features the best of the best on a given topic. Now, let’s bring the Grant Pros to Alltop! You can submit your blog here.
Wait, Wait, Wait!
You are probably wondering, “What is Alltop?”
The purpose of Alltop is to help you answer the question, “What’s happening?” in “all the topics” that interest you. They do this by collecting the headlines of the latest stories from the best sites and blogs that cover a topic. They group these collections — “aggregations” — into individual web pages. Then they display the five most recent headlines of the information sources as well as their first paragraph.
You can think of Alltop as the “online magazine rack” of the web. Alltop subscribes to thousands of sources to provide “aggregation without aggravation.” Here’s how Dan Roam, author of Back of the Napkin: Solving Problems with Pictures, used these two pictures to explain Alltop vis-à-vis Google.
