This is www.lifeblob.com. Entry is by invites only (a bit like Gmail’s launch). It’s a bit like Plurk in the horizontal style of the posts except for a big difference. I can import my blog (www.decisionstats.com for me) in this and all posts are imported in a time bound manner. I can zoom in and out and even tag my connections with relevant posts.Click on the screen shot if you want a better view.
And yes I can import Gmail and Yahoo address books to (which i did= and sent an invite to my top 3500 friends only). What’s more you can expand the posts (so you are not limited to 140 words only).
Big Drawback- Only One Blog can be imported . Well suppose I wanted to import all blogs I like to read (reading is an equally part of my life as writing , right) .Other big drawback- I had to manually click update 85 times for my 85 posts on Decision Stats.The love kind of softened there.
Good things- once I am done, i can pretty well zoom in and out. So its like a enhanced blog reader for me, an online journal, a micro blog hence the name -lifeblob.
I wonder how they measure the online metrics for these- time spent ,number of accounts,number of posts, number of friends,number of invites,number of tags to friends, number of readers of posts etc.
One more thought- Can we use softwares like these to track project progress as like a wiki.Import the RSS feed of the project wiki/project Google Site page. Just kidding! Check it out if you want to have a better way to organize your blog, or just keep a good online journal.
My last post on why expensive oil may just provide liquidity to the global financial system produced some acute reactions on Facebook when someone read it using a Facebook app I use for sharing.
As for using Web 2.0 tools for blogs,
I use Facebook apps called Blog friends and Notes , they give me a continuous feed of friends blogs and similarly promote my blog. I also use the Stumble Upon tool bar in Mozilla Firefox browser , which enables me to submit my post to Stumble upon in less than 10 seconds. The free traffic works.And we have a Decision Stats group on http://www.linkedin.com , which of course provides much better networking than Facebook.
I recently started experimenting with blog tool called www.tumblr.com , which seems a cousin of www.wordpress.com , the software which currently runs this site. If you don’t have the bandwidth (or the money ) but need to put up a site , use WordPress.
And if you want to subscribe to the newsletter , please see the right bar. That is enabled thanks to www.feedburner.com , another company taken over by Google.
