I Love Blog

Lim CS of Increseo Search Marketing (he ranks #1 for the search term “Malaysia Whore“) gave me the heads up on a new blogging platform call I Love Blog.

I Love Blog is a division of Exabtyes Network, a web hosting company in Penang, Malaysia. In a nutshell, I Love Blog is like Blogger but a lot prettier. Based on the Calliope blogging engine, I Love Blog allows you to quickly and easily create a blog for free.

To get their new blogging service off the ground, I Love Blog is holding a contest and giving away free cash. How does the contest work?

We will select one iloveblog.com blogger at the end of every month as the winner, with the criteria as below:

  • Well-written content
  • Best utilized the functionality of iloveblog blogging platform

Once the winner is selected, I will announce it in this blog. This contest will start at March and will be running for six months consecutively. The prize is USD$100! (payable with PayPal).

If you’re sick and tire of Blogger than you may want to check out I Love Blog. I’ll stick to my WordPress. 🙂

  1. John, I would agree with you. I rather stick with wordpress than to move onto some other unknown platform. 🙄

    1. Agreed, I love WordPress and have no reason to move – but it’s good to know that there are alternatives!

      1. Jason says:

        I’m still a rookie, so I’ll stick with Blogger for now …

        Once I build up the visitors and my blog is well under way, I’m convinced to go the WordPress way. No point in switching to another online blog site now (although from the quick peek, they do make some pretty blogs ;)).

        1. Michael Kwan says:

          The problem with that strategy, Jason, is if you start to build up a good PR and a good-sized audience with your current blog, and then you switch over to a self-hosted WordPress solution, you may lose all those linkbacks and your audience might not know that you moved, etc.

      1. zaki says:

  9. Manthem says:

    I may love blog, but will blog love me back? I dig mutual relationships.

    1. Ashish Mohta says:

      You cant just make anybody love back.It will take time if you can really leave the blogging platform and invest time on this

  10. Tyler says:

    I clicked on a couple of the *.iloveblog.com sites their not bad actually and might be better the blogger.

    But then again, I like my custom blog and no one will take me away from it! muahaha

    1. Ashish Mohta says:

      Thats why i like wordpress.You cant stick to restriction when it comes to professional blogging.I would love to pay for making a design when i am earning good

  11. John Chow says:

    I love the domain name. I wonder if they alway owned it, or if they had to buy it?

  12. I use wordpress for mine but I have dabbled with blogger before. Now, I’m having trouble accessing any blogger (i.e. nameofblog.blogspot.com) blog. Not sure if my ISP is blocking that domain or what, but now’s a good time to make the switch, thanks for the head’s up!

    1. Jane May says:

      They probably install viruses into any blogger that decides to switch from blogger to WP. That sux, sorry to hear that 😛

    2. Ryan says:

      Could be a SPAM haven they blocked for some reason.

  13. Guk says:

    WordPress all the way!

  14. Jason says:

    OK … silly off topic question here … but why doesn’t my picture show up over here ———->

    I’m sure it did before 👿

    1. Are you logged into MyBlogLog right now?

      1. Jason says:

        Yeah … that’s the weird thing. I’m sure my picture showed up next to posts I made the other day.

        1. Jeff Kee says:

          My BlogLog is a bit tricky sometimes.. I’ve actually had problems with the MyBlogLog Avatar plugin so I had to disable it from my website.

    2. Aris says:

      The same question I asked yesterday. May be we forgot to wash our hand before sitting in front of the computer. 😆

      1. Jason says:

        Hmmm … but yours seems to be showing up now.

        Do I need to say “Mother may I?”

  15. Stuart says:

    That’s pretty nice of them giving away $100

  16. Owen says:

    WordPress rocks .. haven’t had any reason to swap it for anything yet ..

  17. Jeff Kee says:

    I’m all for self-hosted WordPress all the way. I’m a coder. PHP. I have no problem using the WOrdpress thing.. these gimmicks are not for me.

  18. The iloveblog.com blog’s do look pretty good, I think that the seperate photos and audio sections on the blogs add to its appeal and uniqueness.

    But I agree, WordPress is definitely the way to go if you are looking for total freedom on how you want your blog to be.

  19. Marc says:

    Ugh. Just saw one of their sites and it was very myspaceish. Juts plain ugly. One of their other ones was much nicer so I guess it’s all in what you want to do with it.

    Their front page is very well put together and inviting. I like that a lot.

    1. I also thought ‘MySpace’ when checking out some of their blogs. But most of them are quite a bit less… cluttered.
