Wow! What a first day. Sometimes things just fall into place, and Blogcritics just fell with a cheerfully resounding thud. We had ove 7000 unique visitors in our first 24 hours - tremendous. Thanks for all of your links, attention, comments, opinions, suggestions.
Thanks again to Cary Sherman, who stood in the line of fire and did a fine job of stating his industry's positions. We can agree or disagree with any/all individual points he made, but he did present them well.
I have privately heard from a number of people who were anywhere from mildly surprised to astonished that Mr. Sherman was willing to stick his neck out in such a manner. The guy has balls and we admire balls around here. Keep coming back to the site because we will have more special interviews very soon!
Remember, we are collecting questions and comments for a future interview, your 2 cents are greatly appreciated. Speaking of 2 cents, we also encourage you to give us your thoughts on the site in general or in particular - we are brand new and flexible, making changes as we go and flowing like a freaking river - kumbaya, baby.
Our blogcritics rule with an iron fist. What an impressive initial batch of posts we have received - we thank you all.
Observations for writers: we are streamlining the system. Soon you will receive codes that enable you to enter your own posts on this site, make changes and edit your own work. With this autonomy comes responsibility, though. I have received many questions about what form we want reviews in, and concerns about style and "fitting in."
HERE'S THE RULE: we don't want you to fit in, we want you to be as eccentric, personal, free, weird, freakish, bizarre, etc., etc., as you would like. We want you to treat this LIKE A BLOG.
