  1. Whoop, whoop, whoop! Good for you! And good for B5 too. (Hmmm…maybe you might want to get them to change it to B6 or something. When I glanced at the name it looked like B.S.!) Just kidding! All the best to you Brian. 🙂

  2. well that came out of the blue – but congrats, looks like a win-win for all.

    A great way for b5 to kick start their business channel and I suspect potential jv’s coming your way.

  3. Congratulations Brian! It is a winning combination. I’m delighted to know you’ll part of the b5 family — everything you experienced only gets better! Hope this means we get to see more of each other! 🙂

  4. Great Stuff, more quality content!

    And I don’t even have to go there with that great B5media sidebar…..

    Congratulations on this new win-win (ad)venture !

  5. I’m actually a little disappointed. Happy for you but disappointed nonetheless. Seems like where the money is so some will follow.

    What was all those months of no-network talk just bullshit?

  6. Brian, we’re honored to have you. And I’m personally thrilled. I’m looking forward to finally doing some 1-on-1’ing with you once things calm down here as well.

    Thanks for coming on board!

  7. Congrats Brian – your blog is a great addition to the b5 group – and you and Darren are a natural pair for being the best blogging resources out there. I’m happy for everyone involved! 🙂


  8. Congratulations on the launch (relaunch?) of your site… from a fellow b5 blogger. One of the benefits I’ve gained from b5 was discovering your site. I look forward to great stuff in the future!

  9. Thanks for the kind words Brian, sorry no one gave you the memo though…hold on a sec, no one gave me one either…but I’m no longer with b5media. All the best though and I’ll still be reading 🙂

  10. Well, I’m rectifying part of that problem now. 🙂 Welcome to b5media. We’re really proud and pleased to have you on board. Looking forward to getting to know you better — and to lunch (don’t worry. If you’re in Adelaide, it can be my treat :)).

  11. Well done Brian. Now even more of the world will know of your great writing style. I look forward to years of excellent tips to come…and for you to invest the big bucks you’ll be making blogging on making things even GREATER!

  12. WTF? If anyone doesn’t need to join a network, it’s you Brian. Congrats, though.

    Unrelated: My business channel application wasn’t even responded to, and apparently others experienced this. Though my idea seems to be in the list of new sites. Am I pissed? Of course I am.

  13. Raj,

    I can only apologize for that. I personally responded to every application we received. Either it got lost in my spam or something went seriously wrong if you and others didn’t receive any response at all.

    Again, I do apologize. Feel free to email me privately ( to discuss.


  14. Lest people get the wrong idea about my bitchy, jealous comment above:

    (1) Brian, you seriously deserve to be in b5media. Best of luck to you.

    (2) b5media is a great network, and I have much respect for its founders/ key people and writers/ designers. Though I wonder who’s giving who the benefit 🙂

    (3) The implication that b5media stole my blog idea is the wrong impression. My apologies for being unclear.

    (4) raj still gets jealous even though he already writes for 5 networks (including his own) full-time from home – and doesn’t have to have a real job.

    (5) As a fan of Australia + New Zealand (my old print mag used to make it there in the mid 1990s), I’m still hoping that I’ll one day be worthy of being in b5media (as well as all the networks I’m in).

  15. raj, seems you’re not linking your name with these comments, so curious types like me can’t come and visit to see what wisdom we’re misssing, mate

  16. to be sinceere, I don’t know what so special about b5 media… they provide nothing, and get money from ads on partner websites…

    I am the webamster of one of the top blogs (PR8, 200,000 uniques per day) and would gladly be part only if you described me what is the purpose of beeing part of b5?

    admit it or not, people will read blogs like engadget, boingboing and mine because they are interesting, not because they are part of b5.

    you should explain people that are blogging for you, that they could earn much more by making their own blog on blogger and puting adsense or simmilar on it, rather than making content for your network (b5).

    i dislike problogger and similar sites (copyblogger is actually great!) cause they force referal links, make posts in a way to maximazie their earnings, not thinking about blog quality,

    this is the advantage of this fabulous and best looking site I’m currently writing comment on…

    CopyBlogger please don’t be fool and stay unique for yourself, ingore those moneygrabbing guys at b5.

    Let’s see will you publish this type of comment 🙂 it’s not positive, but also I hope I’m, polite



  17. @Des. I think that considering I forgot my URL the first time, it’s not appropriate that I advertise it on Brian’s blog. But I will be reading your blog.

  18. Congrat’s on your achievement! I actually bumped into your blog through Problogger… and was infact a really nice discovery… seems like this is going to be 1 more place i would visit everyday…
