About

This is a place where people can come together and post what’s on their mind. Where we can throw our thoughts into a blog where we can all view, review, and post comments. It’s also a place where we can share our own thoughts, and all of this without having to search or bookmark each other in 300 different places. Cross post from your own blog, 360 site, Myspace, or wherever. Contribute whenever you like. Comment whenever also. Do your thing, just do it with us!

If you’re interested in becoming a contributor, leave a comment here with a link to your current blog (if you have one), and we’ll be in touch! (Make sure to enter your email address on the comment form – it won’t be displayed.)

Note to Commenters:

  1. Here’s a thought, and it might take a little leg work for the admin…

    …why not use the RSS widget in the sidebar to channel content from the blogs of friends and contributors directly to this location? Like a feed compiler, but you’ll have to do it manually for each feed.

    Or if that becomes too much work, how about a blogroll linking to those kinds of sites? Like a social bookmarking site + blog all rolled into one.

  2. I can see advantages and disadvantages to both your suggestions (which I like!)

    Using RSS feeds would be great for providing an “at a glance” view of what’s new to read. However, it does rely on each platform having a non-buggy RSS feed; I’ve experienced some where a simple republish of a blog floods the feed with apparently “new” posts of the entire blog, spamming the RSS readers of the feed subscribers.

    A blogroll is simpler, covers a wider variety of blogging platforms and is more familiar to people who have limited web experience. However, with no indicator of when new content is available, it is less likely to be used.

    Perhaps a hybrid solution of a blogroll for all contributors, and RSS feeds for a select few who are regularly updating elsewhere. I’ll have to have a play with the RSS widget later…

  3. i’d like to extend an invitation to any/all of you to do the coming out interview on my blog
