Here is my view about blogging:
I think blogging is all about expressing yourself. About what makes you laugh, what excites you, what annoys you, what make you discover super interesting things.
The blogsphere is full of such things. Things I read and I say... "hay, I want my readers to read that too".
Some of us post about it, but most of us simply don't bother to mention it.
So... in outbrain we decided to give this feature to the bloggers.
You can see it on the top right corner of this blog. This is "my blogsphere gems report" or as we call it "linkroll widget".
You will see there the 5 recent highest rated items on outbrain (using our FireFox Extension).
So, above all the personalization benefits I get from the outbrain system, I can also share the gems with my readers.
Now you can see (read) through my "outbrain".
Want it for your blog? click the "get it..." link.
We are still in beta and still controlling the spread of it, but soon it will be wide open.
