Geekzone now has public blogs!


Mauricio over at Geekzone has been coding up some functionality for a blogging engine and has just released it publically – although its still in beta.


“Another blogging engine?” I hear you ask…. So what is different about the blogs at geekzone?



  • Use your Amazon.com affiliate accounts
  • Insert your own HTML on the site
  • Works with YOUR google adsense code (see notes in the introduction though).
  • Automatic RSS via Feedburner along with all the stats that come with it
  • The 10 most recent blog entries appear on the front page of www.geekzone.co.nz – great exposure – and a great way to increase your traffic to a relevant audience…

From my (limited) knowledge I think this is one of – if not the first instance of a blogging engine that allows you to monetise your blog.  Registration will get you a blog in the name of your user name – so something like www.geekzone.co.nz/yournamehere.


Pretty cool – another example of kiwis pushing the envelope… Good work Mauricio!
