Blog Guest

While blogging is popular, bloggers are still small in numbers and varieties.  There is a large body of potential bloggers who current do not blog for one reason or another.  This is where the Blog Guest idea can play a major role. Blog Guest is a blogger you invite to add contents to your own blog.  While the original Blog Guest idea emphasized cross-posting from fringe bloggers to hub blogs with an eye toward healthy distribution of unique view points and blog traffic, I think the idea is better applied to making it easy for would-be bloggers to join the blogging culture.  With blog softwares and services supporting Blog Guest feature, each blogger can invite his or her friends, family, and collegues to have their own space within his or her blog.  There are many benefitial side effects from bringing your real-world micro-community into the blogspace with you, but I will leave that for later posts.
