ANTI-SOCIAL BLOGGING

I was so steamed I forget to include my most fundamental complaint about blogging in my last post!

I publish a post
You write me a comment
I'm notified of your comment by email
I respond to your comment

Question: How do you know I've written a response?
Answer: You don't! (unless you come back again and again until you see the reply and who has time for that????)

How could it be that in a Social-bookmarked-Wiki-Folksy-World that our most popular tool (the Blog) isn't social? ?????????????????????????????????????????????

Good, now that that is off my chest, I think I'll go listen to a podcast on podcasting!

OH, yes! I have thought of this big of anti-logic frequently. If the commenter has left an email address, or a web site with a message link, I try to get back to them directly and not even bother with replying on-blog. But that's frequently not the case.

I also would second many of the items on your initial list as well (that Blogger's dictionary doesn't recognize "blogger", the futility of finding an audience for anything but tech-talk and porn, SEO, who has TIME for second life? Or third, or fourth? etc.).

There is a lot of competition in outsourcing software development, as there are many firms across the globe catering to clients looking for outsourcing their work. What is good is that the takers can choose the best from the lot. http://www.infysolutions.com.
