Revive My Blog Post

Bloggers sometimes write a damn freaking huge good blogpost, post it up and a few days later it gets chucked into the archive never to be seen again. (The scenario illustrated will not happen if you are an expert in SEO or have a PR10 blog)

Its saddening considering someone wrote a masterpiece and it sits there lying deep in the archive never to be read by anyone ever again. Even a fanatic blog reader like has me has to spend a few hours digging through someone's archive just to have that 5 short minute of reading pleasure. Spending a few hours for a few minutes of fun is just not worth it.

So, I thought to myself: "Why not start up something where all the blogpost are of masterpiece value? That way, even society-bummers wouldn't mind spending time digging into an archive thats filled with good quality post."

Thus, ReviveMyBlogPost is created for that purpose. This blog is to reward subscribers with one well-written super-owning super-interesting article to read everyday.

This is a blog managed by a couple of dedicated admins and a dozen of promising blog writers. The idea of this blog is to publish ONE good-quality blogpost everyday (only ONE post per day. no more no less). Members are only expected to copy and paste their old blogpost to this blog. So, in a reader's perspective, they get to read something interesting. In an author's perspective, it doesn't take much effort to join the club.

More info can be found here @ http://revivemyblogpost.blogspot.com/2008/06/about.html

When I started this group, I thought that this would be a revolutionary idea. It turns out I was wrong. In a way, its somewhat similiar to 9rules. The difference is that ReviveMyBlogPost is more suited towards msian/sporean community.

What do guys think about this concept?
Do you think this blog will work in the long run?

Hey 3.8, i think this is a very good idea~
"Its saddening considering someone wrote a masterpiece and it sits there lying deep in the archive never to be read by anyone ever again" - very fantasy haha. "lying deep"..feels like treasure hunting hehe!
i personally think it'll work in the long run. people always love to have their good post re-read~ well, people love their posts to be read as often as possible especially if they reckon it's good! same to me! :)

this is a good concept! Anyway, I am really interested. But I lost my old blog due to stupid mistakes so I doubt I have good posts just yet. But I am more interested in the designing part,templates, banners, link buttons and etc. Please drop me an email if the blog needs a designer. Thanks!

Anymore places? This idea is great. No harm letting it run for a few months and evaluate the response...

Sounds cool and similar to 9rules.

But niche localized content is good. =p
