Did you apply for the ninth 9rules round? Did you win? Do you want to know who did? There’s a list on the official 9rules blog, as usual. This is the first round since Splashpress Media acquired 9rules (disclosure: they own this site too) by the way.
The best way to make work feel like not work is to do something you enjoy, and do it damn well. That’s why we’ve created WorkAwesome, a blog for people who want to be awesome at work. After all, if you’re going to spend eight hours a day doing something, you may as well put some heart into it!
Check out WorkAwesome if you want to make your work awesome. Or maybe you’re just curious on Envato’s latest venture. Either way.
California-based music blog network MOG has raised another $5 million says VentureBeat. MOG is one of those blog networks that focuses on selling ads on blogs in a certain niche, much like Glam and SB Nation.
“We’ve seen super-rapid growth,” said founder David Hyman in an interview. “We sell ads across the top 700 music blogs and signed up all of them over the last 11 months.”
Envato continues to expand, this time it is the AppStorm brand that gets an addition. The new blog is called Web.AppStorm and is all about web apps, obviously, intending to dig deeper says the launch post. Envato head honcho Collis Ta’eed explains:
These days you can do everything from Photoshop-grade image editing to reasonably heavy duty spreadsheet manipulation all from your browser. With mobile devices finally starting to mature, the advent of netbooks and widespread broadband coverage the trend to web applications is only set to continue.
Check out Web.AppStorm if you’re into webapps.
There’s no stopping Envato it seems. The latest addition to the tutorial site network is Phototuts (yeah, I’m cutting out the +, looks bad in text after all), focusing on photography. Tuts manage Skellie announced it, and AppStorm editor David Appleyard will edit it. Makes sense to add photography to the network obviously, but one has to wonder where it will end.
