You Know What’s Interesting?
I asked you first.
[Update: The profile images that I originally linked to were broken because Yahoo! uses a kind of URL expiration technique to enusure that folks can’t link to the profile images for very long. No doubt this is done to save bandwidth. I have replaced the profile images with one I generated at typoGenerator and stored on Flickr.]
I was thinking about having been selected by “the committee” as an Interesting Yahoo! 360° site. I didn’t ask for it, campaign for it, or wish upon a star for it. It just happend to me and a couple dozen other people one day.
Now, as with so many other things in life, being featured has come with both an upside and a downside. Besides the increase in the volume of messages to manage and the more-than-occasional “empty profile” add request, the downside is not so bad. On the upside, I’m getting lots of feedback (all of which is deeply appreciated) and I’m interacting with more neat people, which is the intent of Yahoo! 360°, I would suggest.
I wondered along with others out there, why did my site get picked? I honestly don’t know. However, A question I ask more often is, why didn’t so-and-so’s site get picked? There are lot’s of cool sites out there in Y!360° land. These are sites where I go to get tips, get inspired and get wow’ed.
An example of a site that I feel should be featured is PureVizhun‘s. (Yikes! What did I just wish on you, Dar?) Her site is a kind of clearinghouse or portal for links to all kinds of stuff related to HTML, graphics, freebies, etc. Add to that, she is super-artistic — a quality I admire whenever I see it.
Another artist, trendsetter and all around interesting read is pl8lunch. She is very inventive and fearless in experimenting with her blog layouts. Go to her blog and check out her blog roll… ginormous.
There are lots of inventive, creative, and inspiring people out there and I think that’s so awesome. And there we have just a bit of what I find interesting.
