In the last year that we’ve been running The Philippines According to Blogs (PinyoBlog), we’ve aggregated over 15,000 entries from 2,640 Pinoy blog members.
Until today, the idea was to allow bloggers to re-publish a summary/excerpt of their blog entry into PinoyBlog and give more exposure from readers and fellow bloggers, especially the less known ones. Submission is time-bound so it’s a first comes, first served basis.
It was good and we’re getting more people joining PinoyBlog. Lately however, we’ve been contemplating on re-hashing the idea of having to just aggregate blogs. (It’s not even automated.) I was thinking of something more useful and more community-driven. Much like Digg.com with a twist. If you have a good blog entry or if you post a breaking blog news, the community will push your entry to the top and allow you to stay there for the week.
We will retain the first come, first serve idea but we would like to add some other way for people to discover and read blogs. Then, there’s the execution part.
I’d like to hear some of your feedback on how PinoyBlog could better serve the Filipino bloggers. :)
