Hello Blog, I've missed you


It's been a long, long time since I've written any blog posts, and I don't entertain any delusions that anyone has really missed my posts; nevertheless, I feel the need to explain my absence from the blogosphere.

Since January of this year, I've spent most of my free time working with some friends to develop a new service for creative-minded people. Well, the service is finally to a point where I'm ready to share it with all of my loyal blog readers (that's you Linda).

It's called Review Fuse (www.reviewfuse.com) and it's a service for writers, aspiring writers, or even writing dabblers who want to get some good feedback and constructive criticism for what they've written. The basic concept is that you submit what you've written and other members of the service give you detailed reviews and feedback. In return, you then review the work of other members and tell them what you think. The cool thing we've found out about this method is that you often learn as much or more by reviewing others as you do having your work reviewed.

Of course there's a bunch of other stuff we think is cool like our peer matching technology which attempts to match you with other members with of similar preferences and skill levels, our review frameworks which make it easier to write a review by guiding you through the process, inline commenting so you can write your feedback while you read, and private writing groups which are coming soon.

So, if you like to write please visit Review Fuse and try it out. In fact even if you don't like to write, you can visit the site and read some great short stories. Also, if you know anyone who likes to write, please help us spread the word. Tell them in person, or better yet, add the Review Fuse blog to your blog links (assuming you have a blog of course). And, of course, if you visit the site, please tell me what you think.

If you don't like to write, but wish you could get feedback on what you love to do, don't worry, our ultimate plan is to take over the world expand Review Fuse so that it can be a service for facilitating other types of peer-to-peer critiques. Let me know what you think would be cool to get reviewed in an online community.

  1. I for one enjoy your blog a lot...you are inspiring and just such a fun lady! I am so excited about this website! Eric is majoring in technical writing and is writing papers all of the time. I think he would appreciate some feedback from someone other than myself. I am going to let him know about it for sure. Where do you find time for all that you do? You are seriously such an inspiration to me!

  2. Hey Cami, this is Clark. Thanks for the comment, you just made my point for me. It's been so long since I've posted anything on the blog, you didn't even realize that Linda and I both share the blog. I'll have to do a better job of clarifying it's me when I post. In the future, if you just want to read Linda's posts, you can click her link in the right bar under "Switch to Blogs by" or you can just always visit http://winegarfamily.com/linda, but if you visit http://winegarfamily.com, you'll get posts from both of us.

  3. Hubs, I love the site! I think it's so cool that you are doing this. I have 1 poem to submit later on when you guys allow poems. I have read several of the stories on there and they are pretty cool to read and it's actually even fun to review some of them. Thanks for always working so hard for our little family. I know it'll be successful for you soon. If I were a writer, I think it would definitely be something I would need. Especially since my grammar is not good at all. Your voice is so sexy! and your video is way cute. Now I know where we got the cartoon theme for Bumpy's room.
