MindSay.com, home to more than 50,000 blogs, today announced the launch of readysetblog.com, to educate non-bloggers on the emerging new medium. The site features bloggers in their own words, answering the common questions of:
What is a blog?
Why should I blog?
How do I get started?
To gather the responses, MindSay solicited feedback using its own staff blog. “The feedback from our community was tremendous in piecing this project together,” said Adam Ostrow, MindSay’s co-founder. “With the huge buzz currently surrounding blogging, we believe the best way to reach out and inform the rest of the World about this revolution is to feature bloggers in their own words, answering the questions that many onlookers are still asking.”
In addition to dozens of quotes from real bloggers, readysetblog.com features its own blog that follows developments in the industry. “The blogging landscape is changing dramatically every day,” said Brian Klug, MindSay’s co-founder. “Microsoft recently entered the market with their MSN Spaces product, and we’re already starting to see consolidation with Six Apart’s acquisition of LiveJournal. Our blog at readysetblog.com will keep people informed of the developments shaping our industry, and foster discussion about where we go from here.”
