I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the lookout for new and exciting blogs to read. To be honest, most of my reading these days is blogs, rather than print media or other on-line sources.
A problem I have is finding great new authors who may well have something I really want to read, but I have just never stumbled upon them.
Enter Scribnia – a new website with the aim of connecting readers and bloggers in an entertaining community.
Scribnia is currently still in alpha, but I believe a public beta is planned pretty soon. There is already quite a lively community in the making. Once you sign up for the site, you can search for authors and publications by name or by category. You also have the opportunity to comment on and rate blogs that you like (or don’t like) to help other readers.
Here is the Totally Incorrect page at Scribnia, currently looking pretty sad with no ratings.
It would be great if you could sign up for Scribnia and review Totally Incorrect – some ratings would be really nice!!
Because Scribnia is a brand new community this is a great chance to get involved and help to shape the community. Some of the top blogging guys (and gals) such as Danny Brown, Tim Jahn and Lauren Fernandez are already there so you’ll have good company.
Just in case you have any questions about Scribnia, contact David Spinks, the Community Manager there at firstname.lastname@example.org I’ve found David to be a really nice, helpful guy in helping me get started. You can also find David as @DavidSpinks over at Twitter.
It is going to be really interesting to see how the Scribnia community develops. I’m hoping it becomes a really good tool to help readers connect with some great blogs and writers.
