    Blogs aren’t consumables, though. You can’t “buy” a blog and play with it–it’s like saying that “personal journals” are high on the list. And since most blog software is free, it’s not a marketable item…

    Yes, just as Elliott put it. I get really surprised every time when see such a news that either does not have any sense or, if it exists, it is not made clear.

    Hi,

    You may or may not be interested in this site that my wife and I just launched (about 3 days ago actually!) but hopefully you have the time to check it out and maybe even help us spread the word.

    http://www.ourfaceplace.com

    It’s intended to be a fun novelty page for bloggers and podcasters, We think it has huge potential and it is a bit of an experiment but we think it could really take off!

    Let us know what you think and if you have any ideas or suggestions for the site.

    Cheers!
    Chad
