The New York Times article Blog-Bleary? Try (What Else?) a Blog tackles ways to keep up with high volumes of Blog traffic.
The main purpose of the article seems to to announce a new service — Kinja http://www.kinja.com (which opens tomorrow, I guess…). Kinja will allow you to aggregate blog feeds to produce a “customized blog of blogs“.I’m thinking that’s pretty interesting.. though not on the surface too different from other services…
As of 9:25 PM PST, though, the site was not yet live. Dang… we’re usually behind on this coast!
Back to the article… The author went on to explain the merits of Kinja a bit further, but then lost me somewhat when he lumped Bloglines into the “technically complex” category.
In the online version, it was interesting to see who was provided a link to their site and who was not… wonder what controls that?
I did like the concept covered towards the end of the article — the idea that we are seeing a trend of putting more editorial control in the audience’s hands.
Yupp…. we’re more and more mainstream, aren’t we?
I’ll check tomorrow!
Kind of ironic that I found the article by checking my Bloglines account…
