Are You An Atheist Blogger? READ THIS!

A while ago i grabbed the corank subdomain "atheism" but didn't get a chance to promote it.

For those who don't know, corank is a bit like digg in the sense that stories and links are submitted by users and then voted on. The most popular get promoted and bring a lot of traffic.

So i'm hoping that if we all kind of work together we can help each other increase our readerships and at the same time create quite a nice atheism portal which would help us bloggers see what is popular in the "atheospere" and which subjects are in need of having an opinion expressed at them.

You can see the front page (which is quite bare at the moment) here. And here is a page detailing how bloggers should link to corank in order to have sites submitted. You can also submit links manually or easily create a bookmark which can be clicked whenever you are at a page you like.

You can simply link your articles by including the following code somewhere in your page in plain sight (to get most votes). If your story has not yet been submitted the first person to click it will get the opportunity to submit it, or else a click will count as a vote. (see mine at the top of the right hand column)

<a style="font-weight: bold;"
href="javascript:void(location=(''+encodeURIComponent(document.location)+'&amp;title='+encodeURIComponent(document.title)+'&amp;source=k'));">Vote for this

If you use a blogger blog, create a new gadget, select text or javascript and paste it in.

So i encourage you all, bloggers and readers, to start submitting and start voting. In case you are wondering, it;s fine to submit your own blogs and urge your readers to vote for you.

That link again

any question?


  1. Looks interesting. How do I add the submit to atheist news button to Feedburner's FeedFlare plugin?

  2. I'm not too sure Danny, i've never had any experience with feedflare.

    There is a url you can create to submit/vote articles.

    (changing appropriate parameters)
    I'm not sure if that helps, let me know how you get on.

  3. How do you see this as being different from Atheist Spot?

  4. This can be very helpful to atheists or actually everybody:
