Feedmesh: A blogger's gateway is just a ping away [revised]

Blogging will get much easier.

The old days of blogging meant submitting your XML RSS Atom feeds to each host individually. Then pinging them, one at a time, with updates.

Then came Feedmesh. It promises to be a "one-ping-notification" for bloggers.

Bob Wyman, of PubSub and one of the many drivers behind the new concept says, "The idea behind FeedMesh is to allow the various feed monitoring or search engines to share information about new and updated blogs."

With FeedMesh bloggers will only have to submit their feed once. FeedMesh does the rest: It lets everyone know you have a blog, a feed, and new updates to share.

Here's a sneak at their logo ideas. Which one do you like?

Bob was kind enough to take a few moments out of his busy schedule to share some insight into the work of the FeedMesh group. Wyman is very confident about the prospects of the new system.

Wyman commented, "The FeedMesh is designed to ensure that any blogger need only ping a single site in order to get broad distribution of their pings -- as long as the site they ping is a FeedMesh member."

Not just the updates. But all those feed submissions.

Says Wyman, "We have created the mechanism to enable 'single ping updates'. Now, we're just waiting for people to join the FeedMesh."

Let your blog hosts know: They can get on board, save time, and make their lives easier.

Feedmesh. Now making the on-ramp to the internet bigger, and easier
