Sniff,Sniff... ShareBlogs is Dead
I did it. I killed it. I didn't mean to. All I wanted to do was have a little fun, but I always carry it too far. Greed and power are cruel mistresses. Joe's ideals were pure. Mine, profit-driven. Initially, I saw the community for what it should have been, before the evil twins took hold of my psyche, and I decided to try and make it what it could be...mmmuuuaaahhahahhaa. Only upon the discovery of my fiendish plot was the site taken down, hopefully to one day be reborn in its intended glory...uncorrupted by these vile hands... I plan to leave the links to my ShareBlog expatriates, in memory of what could have been...
Alex, a glib explanation in your post. Blogshares is just a game. Shareblogs was much more than that to me, and I am deeply offended at your cavalier attitude.
I was shocked that ShareBlogs was shut down. What was it that you actually did to cause Joe to become so disillusioned?
You said it Alex! You "decided to try and make it what it could be" while most of us were very happy with what it was. You brought bad vibes and controversy to the table and talk like that was some sort of accomplishment. Your sarcasm (sniff, sniff) isn't as funny as you think it is and you really fooled me...
I don't really know what happened but one of my comments apparently played a role in triggering the shutdown. I'm sorry though I'm not quite sure what for.
This is the only place that carries an explanation of what happened to ShareBlogs. I really don't know what was going on and remain so - clueless, but I'm pretty disappointed that ShareBlogs is now no more because it was a fantastic idea and it helped me discover new blogs. Anyway, best of luck to all that played the game.
Shareblogs.com was awesome and it made me like blogshares.com again. While jenett and I disagreed on somethings, he had an awesome idea.
From Joe's Website:
Great, another great non-explanation. ShareBlogs was really a great idea and I thank Joe for that, but I still don't understand why he reacted so suddenly and without explanation to whatever it was that happened.
All I know is that James from http://www.whatisthis.com/ made it awesome and fun for us all! He made it really tick as all who participated know very well.
