I have found 'brandable' content to be a valuable concept for the MegaMall -
actually in both directions. For example, we have a program that allows
sites to create their own 'MegaMall Branch', which provides them the ability
to provide additional content with links/branding back to their site, and
provides us with additional traffic.

Going the opposite direction, we have taken advantage of a number of
brandable content sources: Earthweb's Chat Planet, Individual Inc's Newspage
Network headline news feeds, and the Digital Postcards online card system.

I also thought Mike's Real Estate cartoon of the day is great, but it
doesn't apply to our site's purpose.

My question is, does anyone know of a good source that provides a
list of other brandable content sources on the web? I'd be VERY
interested in finding out what else is available. I know there are probably
many more that I am not aware of and I am quite interested in finding
more ways to provide additional relevent content to increase repeat traffic.

Anyone with any details, please post or email me at
