Lycos and Qumana, the desktop blogging client with contextual advertising integrated has unveiled a partnership. One of the things I really have enjoyed about Qumana is being able to recommend this to friends who use WordPress.com because this is the only way I know how to advertise on any WordPress.com blog. On top of that the folks over at Qumana are friendly and seemingly answer questions in a timely fashion. I’m excited to see how this partnership grows and helps bloggers make money, and utilize easy to use tools.
Lycos, Inc. (http://www.lycos.com), a leading media destination for creators and consumers of quality content, today announced a new desktop blog editing tool, powered by Qumana, making blogging easier and more profitable for bloggers everywhere.
With the new Lycos-Qumana Desktop Blog Editor (http://lycos.qumana.com), Lycos enhances the freedom of blogging, allowing users to publish to their Tripod and Angelfire Blogs on Lycos, as well as to other major blogging sites, from the desktop. Additionally, the Lycos-Qumana Desktop Blog Editor works with Qumana’s Qads, an integrated ad program, allowing bloggers to insert ads into their blogs, while revenue from these ads is shared with the bloggers.
“If you’re an active blogger, the Lycos-Qumana Desktop Blog Editor now gives you the ability to post to multiple blogs with just one click, extend your blogs further reaching more people, and make more money from your blog content,” said Alfred Tolle, CEO of Lycos, Inc. “With this new offering, Lycos continues to reinforce our strategy by offering content creators the tools needed to better showcase and market their independent content.”
