There's probably a couple dozen people here who have their own blogs, right?

Well, I have an idea. Instead of clicking through to people's blogs when I see a link to one in someone's forum signature, why not aggregate all our blogs into a single feed, one place where we can keep up with everyone's lives?

Have a look at http://www.planetplanet.org/

With Planet, all the contributors host their own blogs (as we already do) and the content can be optionally aggregated into a single Planet blog that we could host on LittleWhiteDog.

For example, I only have to subscribe to a single feed to keep up with all my fellow Fedora or Gnome contributors. And I don't have to know when new blogs are started up if they syndicate their content to the Planet.

What do you think? Do we have enough people with blogs to make it worthwhile?

I'd be willing to put some time into setting it all up and even hosting Planet on my server here to start with, bandwidth permitting.

Personally I don't have a blog, but I like the idea of a single feed. Anything that saves a few clicks works for me.

Me neither...actually I haven't visited littlewhitedog.com for years (Except to hit the chat if I can't get to littleblackdog.com)...might be a good boost to the site to keep it updated on a regular basis...

Indeed, and the best part is that all people need to do is just keep doing what they already are doing: Occasionally update their blog.

I don't have a blog either but I think it's a good idea. I've visited a few of ya'lls and some show real talent.

Not to outdo your idea, but I think we should start a LittleBlackDog Mafia Wars on FaceBook. Idea


Remember Scarecrow? He's mah n*ggah Doggie, and so is Spot.

We need more Peeps Doggies.

Well, anything is better than nothing, and nothing is what it's doing right now.

Let's talk about how it should work. I have no objection to exploring options.

Might could add a friends and family section also.

CompleteRunning.com did something similar a few years ago.

They set up a place where you could register your blog and it provided one feed to aggregate everybody. I found some good blogs that way, but with the 700 or so they had at the time it was too much to keep up with.

I'm game, I'll subscribe if we create an uber feed, even though I'm not here as often as I used to be.
