Plinky

23rd January 2009

Have you heard about Plinky yet? It launched yesterday, and you might want to go grab your preferred user name before it’s gone.

Plinky gives you a new question to answer every day, and lets you friend people and compare answers with them, sort of like you can on Facebook or Twitter. You can favorite other people’s answers, and publish your own answers to your blog (or your Twitter feed), and so forth. If you’re already blogging, it’s a nice way to supplement and to help your readership grow. If you’re not, it’s a less work-intensive way to connect with friends. I’m an advisor to the company, and I’m excited about it, so I’ll be posting my answers to Plinky prompts here in the next few weeks. Go have a look, and let me know what you think.

    I just signed up for Plinky today and was surprised when I saw your twitter about it. I’m on the fence as I’ve always hated those “If you were stranded on the desert” questions. But at the same time I’m intrigued enough that I read through a lot of answers. Also I’m addicted to social networks, so you’ll probably find me there.

    But on the front page – shouldn’t it say “Didn’t you USE to have a blog” instead of “Didn’t you USED to have a blog”? Faulty grammar is not really a great way to start off…

    Shylo, that tag line is rotating, refresh the page and a new one will pop up. I didn’t have a hand in the taglines, but I think there are quite a few of them.

    Shylo: I wrote the taglines. Some people (like me) don’t blog frequently if they aren’t reminded to. Plinky’s daily prompts are a little “push” to go share something fun & interesting.

    Katrin: You made me second-guess myself, but “used to” is correct: http://www.bartleby.com/64/C001/065.html Thanks for keeping an eye out for us, though!

    Maggie: THANK YOU!

    Hum. Potentially cool. It all depends on the snappy-ness of the questions though, which I hope you’ll have a hand in, Ms. Mason.

    If, after Plinky-ing, you want to answer another question, you can join up over at Vox.com. They post a new Plinky-like question every day, and they also do a “Hunt” every day — “Show us a picture of…” Just FWIW.

    I found you on Plinky before I read this post. I feel like a Plinky stalker now. Yay! A new title under my belt!
