how to make blogs better

September 20th, 2005

I won't claim this is a novelty, it was invented a long time, just that very few people actually use it. The problem with blogs is that noone wants to read them and if we look at it closely, it's not really surprising. A lot of blogs are low activity, with rare, sporadic updates. So checking a blog regularly doesn't seem very worthwhile. Solution? Group blogs. Those are great because you have multiple people writing in the same place, they read each other's writing and it makes a lot more sense to have stuff like polls.

Or even if every blog is separate, then syndicate a bunch of blogs on one site to combine them. That way people have a place to go *and* individuality isn't compromised.

    That means be directly associated with other people? I don't like the sound of that :redface:

    It's a sound concept actually. While you keep your blog the way it is, there's a greater chance someone will read it because you're part of a group. Makes good sense.

    Someone should start a website for blog grouping cause I can't be bothered.
