New direction at Critique My Blog

I think I'm going to be taking Critique My Blog in a new direction in the coming weeks. I have wanted for a long time to start a blog about general stuff and about blogging in general. Things like advice on making your blog better, improving your blog rankings and standings, and monetizing. I love the whole blog topic and I also want to be able to express myself personally. So instead of starting and trying to maintain to many blogs, I am going to incorporate these things into this blog. I will keep it organized into features like Blog Critiques, Learn from My Mistakes and Others, and The Blog Advocate. These are just ideas I've been throwing around. It has also been getting harder and harder to keep up with all the critiques. I has already been trending towards doing one blog or a few a day. I will keep this format. I will concentrate on a blog of the day critique with an occasional extra blog review thrown in there. I will continue to take submissions to use as a pool to choose from and the only criteria is to put the link to Critique My Blog in your sidebar as usual. I will not consider blogs that has chosen not to add my link. In the past I have not made this a requirement, but I put aot of time into reading a reviewing a blog and I think it is not too much to ask to link to this blog. I will also be doing some advertising in the near future to boost readership and ranking which will help those of you who have a blog review on this blog as the higher the rank of a blog that links to yours the higher the rank your blog will be. Also the advertising will hopefully increase your readership some more.

I sent a request to have my blog reviewed well over a month ago (came from Lisanne's blog~Bathtub Junkie.net) & I added a link in my sidebar to your site then. I check in daily & was just wondering~how long does it take to have a blog reviewed? Not being pushy~I've been patient :) Just a reminder~my blog address is:

Hello
A link to you is on my side bar and I agree with the lady above, a section where you give some idea as to how long the wait is likley to be before a blog gets reviewed would be helpful. Feel free to review either or both of my blogs. Thank you.

Right now there are over 300 requests for blogs...I try to review one a day and more if I can...so I will do my best to review them and look for them by name in the inbox...

I had been waiting a while too. But I can imagine and understand how difficult it is for him to take on this task! I appreciate your efforts and keep doing what your doing as people love it!
