We've made a few improvements to the site: a mailing list sign up page,
a guestbook, and the first of our "featured blogs" on the home page.
Plus, the most recently added blogs are featured on the homepage, and on each borough page. More changes to come, watch this space!
May 31, 2002
Since our launch this Tuesday, we've been overwhelmed by the response. Over 450 bloggers from every borough,
representing 189 subway stops, have signed up. We got over 20,000 visitors.
We've been written up in
and we were yesterday's “Cool Site” at the
NYCbloggers topped the lists at Daypop and
Jade Walker at Poynter.org calls us
“one of the coolest weblog directories I've seen on the Internet.” Over at
webmonkey, we're the current
Monkey Bite — they say we make “engineering ‘accidental’ meetings with your favorite blogger a whole lot easier.”
And there's already a parody of sorts
over at Fireland.
Not bad for our first week! We had no idea when we put this together that it would be so popular. Or even that there were so many bloggers in New York
City. Thank goodness this isn't 1999 or we'd be considering a disastrous IPO.
We do have plans for some improvements to this site that will make it even more useful to New York's bloggers. Thanks to you all for signing up, for
spreading the word, and for making New York City the blogging capital of the world.
