Bloglines makes linkblogs easy :)

June 29, 2005

I decided to start a linkblog to keep random clippings from the blogosphere. If you use Bloglines as an aggregator, it’s remarkably easy. You just click the “Clip/Blog This” link, add comment(s) if necessary and publish.

Now if only there was category support and searching on the Bloglines blogging system I could use it as an archive of all the stuff I think is cool in the blogosphere.

Hey Bloglines team, are you listening? How about adding some features? 🙂

    Great minds think alike, or fools rarely differ: I recently implemented a clipblog at Bloglines, but being the developer geek, used the Bloglines RSS feed to serve the clipblog from my own site.

    Hey Mark,

    Nice stuff you got here. Probably just like the other hundred hits you get a day, I found out about you from a news article about blogging. Surprise, surprise.

    So your working for Plaxo now, eh? I’m just wondering what sets Plaxo apart from the other services like Where are you now? (WAYN), Ringo, etc. Cause just lately, I’ve been flooded with requests to update my contact info from a handful of these services. I’m looking to settle with one…so maybe you can tell me something about Plaxo that sets it apart…like an edge?

    Sorry, but the official Plaxo site says about the same thing as the other one’s…a first hand account maybe?

    Thanks…it would be great if you could do this… 🙂


    PS I realize that this comment is completely unrelated to your bloglines entry….sorry

    Hi Luke,

    There are a few things that set Plaxo apart:

    1. We plug right into Outlook/Outlook Express, making it easy for you to keep your contacts in order and right where you use them.
    2. We aren’t in it to sell your info
    3. We have an award winning privacy policy and we make sure that you stay in control of your information.
    4. We have the most members and the best network, meaning that you’ll make the most connections through Plaxo.

    We also have an IE Toolbar and Plaxo Online which both give you access to your single, synchronized, up-to-date Plaxo Address Book.

    Let me know if you have any more questions. If you’d like, you can also e-mail me directly 🙂


  4. Just to add onto Mark’s comments,

    – Plaxo does not require you to become a member simply to respond to a friends request and update them with your own address book. Other services require you sign up which help them to inflate their claims of number of users. We do ask if you’d like to become a member after responding, but this is completely separate and optional.

    And there are also a number of key features that we currently provide, not found in other services.

    – Multi-system synchronization. This feature allows people to have one address book sycn’d across multiple systems so there is no duplication of effort and information.

    – Address Book Optimizer and Bounce Manager. Members can use Plaxo to clean up duplicate entries in their address book, and identify those contacts without a valid e-mail address.

    – Mobile (WAP) Access to Calendar and Phone information.

    And did we mention about our recent announcement with AOL.

    Thanks for the additional thoughts Stacy! You’re the expert 🙂

    Hi Mark & Stacy,

    Thanks so much for your answers. It kinda bought a nice unique human touch to Plaxo for me…compared to the un-answered emails I sent to the other networks.

    You’ll probably be really happy to know that I’ve signed up with Plaxo! hehehe

    Thanks again! 🙂
