A while ago, we told you that we will come back to talk about Zankyou for the upcoming developments of this online wedding lists management service. We mentioned that this subject of wedding management was very interesting for online businesses, due to the high interest of the users and the big business that it moves.
Zankyou has made an important bet. They already have the service available in 7 countries including Spain, and they just launched the Italian version. The international expansion for a service of this kind makes a lot of sense, but it doesn’t mean just translating the website. The site content must be adapted to the country and it’s important to strike agreements with companies of those countries for advertising and for the management of the wedding lists of the users.
At Zankyou, they have started generating content on the theme. Perhaps the best way to attract users is through quality information and that’s what they are looking for with their magazine and with their blog.

On the web of Grupo Intercom, I came across Citrusparadis, an online shop for the sale of ecological and natural cosmetics.
If I am not mistaken, this is the first e-commerce shop from Grupo Intercom. The group has other projects related to ecommerce (Solostocks, Artesanum) but I think this is the first purely ecommerce site that they have been involved in.
But Citrusparadis is not only an online cosmetics shop, it also has an informative and popular blog mostly focusing on ecological products.
At the forefront of Citrusparadis is Catherine Morghese, an expert in natural cosmetic products.

Ruben Colomer, Juan Luis Hortelano and Mariano Amartino present us their new project, Media Reload, an advertising network specialising in blogs, social networks and the new media.
It’s very interesting to read the principles upon which Media Reload is based with regards to the support and the advertisers. The principles are the ones that we all look for when it comes to advertising on our blogs, but unfortunately do not always coincide with the principles followed by the advertising agencies. Hope that at Media Reload, they will always maintain these ideas and that the work that they do from now on will help improve the business of advertising in the world of blogs.
Right from the start, Media Reload can count with two blog networks, the social network Catodicos and two important blogs: Online and Celularis.
From Loogic, I wish them lots of success to these three entrepreneurs, whom I also consider to be friends, and I know that they will do a great job with this new company and that we all will benefit from it.

Well, it’s difficult to differentiate between community and social network, maybe it’s more a question of terminology than real elements. But the point I want to make is that Bitacoras.com has taken one step further to convert itself into a social network for bloggers.
Now in Bitacoras.com, bloggers who add their blogs in the directory, can create their personal profile, add information about their blogs, connect with other users, send notifications of update of their blogs, …
Certainly, now Bitacoras.com is more of a social network like Facebook than a directory of blogs or a portal about the blogosphere, which is what it was when it was conceived.
The question is, is there any sense to creating a social network for bloggers? It would be nice to know what has been the experience of Alianzo in this respect. What I see is that Bitacoras.com is going to turn into a reference for people who are not a part of the blogosphere, and is going to be the point of entry for people to get to know the world of blogs. If they can pull this off, bloggers will be able to see the great utility of Bitacoras.com and will participate in an active way in the social network because it will have a direct benefit in their work with their blogs.
To conclude, here’s my profile in Bitacoras.com
