BlogUpp - More traffic boosting hijinks

BlogUpp! is yet another service aimed at bringing in some extra readers. This one is slightly different to the others - and I'm quite keen to see what it brings.

Firstly, it isn't promising thousands of targeted readers (and I'm looking at YOU here BlogRush).

Secondly you don't need to sign up for anything, you just generate the code and add it onto your site.

Thirdly - and this is the bit that I like - it uses the RSS feed on your blog to pull in your latest story, generates a thumbnail image of your site and posts that in the feed of other people using the widget. When you roll-over the thumbnail a preview of the article is shown and if you click it you are taken directly to the site (in a new window).

Nice one!

This looks like another one that will get the "one week to see what the results are" treatment.
