IPexpert: CCIEBlog to relaunch – EverythingIE coming soon

Web 2.0 is coming to the CCIE community.  IPexpert will be relaunching CCIEBlog (I was told the that first run was just a shell) very soon:

CCIE>Blog_ is the world’s first CCIE-focused blogging platform. Within this community, you will have access to the following features and services…

  • Set up a free personalized blog with this targeted domain name, for example: bobsmith.ccieblog.com
  • Keep regular journal entries of your CCIE preparation path, collaborating with others working on the same product you are (keeps you accountable to yourself and your peers that follow your posts!)
  • Existing CCIEs can build a “content site” for other candidates to follow and learn from
  • Includes a DIRECTORY of CCIE-related blogs making it easy for you to find others and for others to find your blog 
    • Get your blog listed in the directory even if it is not hosted at CCIEblog.com
  • All CCIEblogs will have a “Rank This!” feature allowing the best, most informative and relevant blogs to be featured
  • Participate in the “CCIE>Blog_ of the Week” contest 
  • Special offers for training products, courses and rack sessions for all active CCIE>Blog_ Members

In August, they will be begin beta testing EverythingIE:

EverythingIE encompasses all aspects of online and offline social networking resources,while also providing a repository of information for both CCIE candidates and current CCIEs to excel in every way. As the name implies, this community’s purpose is to provide everything related to being or becoming an “IE.”

Community Features

  • Detailed member profiles with interactivity
  • Discussion forums and email list-serv communities
  • Live online events (including free training seminars)
  • Podcasting by community members and instructors
  • Group formation by anybody (start your own study group)

  • CCIEwiki will provide all you need to know about the exam experience, location info (including recommended hotels near testing centers, etc.)
  • RSS feeds pulled into your personalized study center
  • Useful tools for networking engineers
  • Much, much more to come…

Right now you can enter your email address at either (or both) sites and you will be updated when the sites launch.  Both sites offer this intriguing bonus:

Once launched, the first 25 active CCIE>Blog_ sites will be rewarded handsomely. 🙂
Once launched, the first 25 [EverythingIE] active members will be rewarded handsomely.

IPexpert has been giving away a ton of free training lately, so if you’re thinking about entering the glamorous world of CCIE blogging 🙂 you may want to think about using CCIEBlog as it seems likely you will end up with some free product.
