Everyone blogs the same news?
I’ve been looking round at lots of blogs this evening, geeky ones and popular ones, you know the top 500 technorati kinda blogs.
And i noticed a bit of a trend…
I didnt hear about google releasing their own wysiwyg webpage editor, they released it whilst i was without the internet for that horrible 2 days, but since i got back online i’ve been seeing this same bit of news everywhere, especially blogs, and the popular ones too.
I would imagine that many readers here are also fans of digg.com, which just recently has entered the top 500 websites on the whole interweb (pretty popular) and as it happens very little gets past digg, if its big news it will be on the front page.
With digg becoming so popular there is not much of a need for these big news stories to be posted on hundreds of blogs, all with the same details.
So why bother? I just think its almost a bit of a waste of time, at least for the geeky.
We know whats going on in the mainstream, the big companies shout their releases from the rooftops, what i want to see is the more hidden titbits (hehe) of the interweb, those sites that not to many people know about, or that never got the attention they deserved.
So link me up blog-o-sphere, i want to see the weird and wonderful, the geeky and the cool, but most importantly, the stuff i havnt seen on the digg.com front page.
