On the outside

Well looks like I was mistaken. In my last post I mentioned that I was asked for some input on the new Music City Bloggers site and the possibility was raised of some sort of partnership with a digg like companion site. As it turns out there was only one person with any real interest in that idea. And even that may have been more of a courtesy than true interest. So the MCB group is moving along with whatever plans they’ve made and I’m twiddling my thumbs. I’d like to say that I’m not disappointed, but it does bother me. Little bit. I’d been trying to connect a little more locally lately, but a bit too late perhaps to be considered one of the gang.

So, what to do? What to do?

I just read this post that Kathy made and how there are now at least four of these sort of meta blog thingies: NiT, About-Nashville, Music City Bloggers, and Metroblogging Nashville. So it could be argued that TN Blog Watch only contributes to the problem. But then I wonder… perhaps these sites already have their audience, and the existing audience is the primary source of material. If that’s the case then is there room for another whose aim is to find those bloggers who aren’t yet showing up on the radar screens of the big four? Well, probably not 🙂 But, that’s what I’m going to try and do with TBW. It’s either that or abandon it to my junk drawer of ideas. Not sure anything else will fit in that drawer. Besides that I just got finished making it all purty. Not the drawer, the web site. You know. Anyway, with that in mind, if you read someone local that doesn’t seem to show up on any of those sites I mentioned above, be sure and give them a plug on TBW.
