Just got me thinking. In a community, such as this, we can all feed off of one another. We can see when new friends write something and have the ability to find more friends... but, even with rss, people having an isolated blog eventually become uberpopular or die off.
I guess it all comes down to getting attention? If you have an isolated blog, you aren't going to have many people read, and only 25% usually comment, so you just get no feedback from it.
Anyone else noticing this trend or am I just making it up? Just seems like the net is slowing down lately... a lot of blogs and other sites that update regularly and aren't owned by a business are slowing down. Either people are getting bored with their sites or they aren't getting the attention they used to...
Yes, I'm still working on unread before you ask, and no, its not done yet
To kill the time while I'm working on it, I could use some serious help with some graphics for the site (like the unread banner)... so if there are are any professional graphic artists in the crowd.... you know who you are (actually, I think we all know who you are)
Also, bethanie made a comment a bit ago about having a 'cutest baby' contest... I thought it could work like the photo contests we have yearly, except there aren't many children in the circle... what if I expanded it to children and pets? Any interest?
