In my travels, I had missed this comment by Kevin Werbach: “BlogStreet is a nifty Weblog ‘neighborhood analysis’ site. Plug in a blog, and it will show others that are related, based on link structures.”
We launched BlogStreet in early August, and then have gone to sleep. No innovation done after that. The number of blogs has crossed 10,000. It was a neat little idea (still is), but we didn’t push on it aggressively, since it took long to do, and we went on to other things in Emergic. BlogStreet has become like a hanging leaf node without a parent. I think we need to take a look at it again. If anything, the world of blogs has grown since the time we began work on it. Must take a re-look at it and see how we can grow it as a valuable resource for bloggers and non-bloggers alike.
