Becoming an MVB for DZone
Recently I was approached by DZone, where they asked if I wanted to become one of their MVBs.
MVB, you might say: what’s that? While I liked MÃ¥ns’ suggestion, it’s not really hitting the head on the nail… 🙂
MVB stands for Most Valuable Blogger, and generally, what it means in practice is that a select number of my articles per month will also be cross-posted at DZone. My experience with DZone has been that they’re nice people who care about delivering quality content, so naturally I was honored to get the question.
From my point of view, it’s about reaching out to more people than my regular readers or people who find this web site through Google, spreading the word to more web developers. At the same time, naturally, DZone appreciate getting versatile and interesting content.
So, if you see any article by me at DZone, don’t worry: it’s not a rip-off, just me trying to conquer the world! 🙂
World Domination is only a few posts away!
Well, I'm happy that I was wrong! 🙂
Jolly good luck with DZone, you totally deserve it!
Just wanted to FYI you on this, my opinion of DZone was tarnished after this affair with yehuda and the jquery refcard.
Congratulations on having your content syndicated. Not quite as fun as having an army of giant robots for world domination but a whole lot cheaper. 🙂
Great news Robert, and good to see you expanding your reach of influence. 🙂
While I don't know enough to go into the debate what they do with registered users' information etc, I'm glad to say that all of my content published on DZone will be freely accessible without login/registration or anything similar.
I have to say, though, that the DZone representative in the link you pointed to have to learn something about respect and communication…
This is just step one… 😛
You've earned it 🙂
Some days, at least… 😛
