I can't believe it. Salon has fixed it's problems, but alas, it may be too late as most of us are on our "family" site OurSALON
This was a post about the Olympics, but someone on OpenSalon went in and edited my tags. So now this is under "How to Increase that blog audience."
Why did I do that?
This post had almost 1000 hits. If you had read what I had here previously, you would have scratched your head to bleeding wondering how this ended up under that OpenCall. With THAT many views.
But hey, at least Salon has given me something. I have never made it on any front page or for that matter ANYWHERE here on Salon.
I am TOO controversial. But actually, my blog gets a lot of audience.
Not much from the OpenSalon populace, but a HUGE amount from the outsiders who just come here to read.
So here, Salon gave me an open edge without knowing it.
But Salon has this thing about "the well rounded reader", It is the choice of the editors who that is. But the public has been complaining loudly that OpenSalon is a washed up mess and the front page is the same old crap. Life isn't all politics, but you can't convince them.
And it is so screwed up that I have ended up here under "how to increase my blog audience."
I didn't put those key words in, Salon did...what a bunch of dweebs,
Lorianne, a favorite here on Open has started this new site while we were having issues here. Page errors, crashing etc. No one would respond, so we all knew we needed something, but no one had the gumption to do anything about it.
Lorianne did. She made a site that is BETTER than OpenSalon.
We have live chat, if you want. We can design our own pages. Your work gets recycled constantly, everyday, your posts, both new and old are gonna show up in the "recommended reading" at the end of other posts.
Lorianne is on line every day so you can speak direclty to her.
And people are concerned for each other there. Genuinely concerned.
Those are just a few of the perks.
The site is exclusive, professional and fun. And it still has all that Open has.
Really, there is no reason to not at least TRY OurSalon: At least go and look!
