What is a good source of online etiquette for cross-medium self-promotion? I'm thinking someone might be going over the line, but I want something to back me up so it doesn't seem like I'm just overreacting. A member of an e-mail list I subscribe to posts about her/his blogs over frequently, to the point of always posting whenever there is a new entry up. I'm through ignoring it, and more than one person has suggested to him on list that if people wanted to read her/his blog that they'd do it. I'm not sure she/he is getting it. However, I can't really find any good sources for this sort of netiquette - I'm finding things only related to blogs or to e-mail lists, not both. I'd like something to point to if I (or others) choose to reach out to her/him.

What are some good blogs or other news sources concerned solely or mostly with "what the president is doing" (politically; not what he had for breakfast)?
Basically, I'm curious about keeping up with Obama's acts as president -- orders signed, deals forged, initiatives taken, stuff like that. [more inside]

I finally convinced my boss that we could manage a blog. The blog would be (in fact already is) on an existing community site with other arts organizations; my idea is to get it going, and provide links in both directions. This is at absolutely no cost to us, and I've worked out a rotation so no single person needs to write more than one entry per year. Then she started talking to her marketing guy. [more inside]

I have a website with about 2000 hits a day. I have recently and grudgingly plastered it with google ads. Can anyone tell me, ideally if traffic keeps up, what kind of revenue might this generate per day. Any personal experience would be great. Thanks.

What are your favorite places to read about and talk about books online? Bibliophile hearts Goodreads.com but seeks a world beyond...
Are there any online book clubs that are good (my searches return a lot of results, but I can't tell at a glance what's worth exploring)? What are the book review blogs of record?

I like Ricky Gervais' blog
. I would like to keep up with new posts, but I don't want to have to go to his website. He doesn't have an RSS feed, and when I put the URL in Bloglines (my feed reader), it comes back as having no feeds. Short of using some sort of blog 'scraper' to create my own feed (I've tried unsuccessfully to do this), does anyone know if someone has made an RSS feed (through FeedBurner or something) for his blog?

I've been doing some thinking lately about blogs. It seems that most of the really popular, successful blogs stick to one topic or another, pretty well defined (food, books, politics, celebrities, etc.).
Are there any really popular or successful (in the sense of widely-read, or just good to read) blogs that are about a variety of topics, or that take the 'one person's views on a whole bunch of things' model?
