Agreed. One can also notice the Google Ads. Who's revenue? And that AIR is an Adobe product name. And that a bunch of separate blogs is not a "community". I've seen a few web sites devoted to creating links by subject but Google Directory does the same thing, although few use it. And how does one determine quality over quantity? Thats where Digg and Technorati come in...

Guest posts are typically done by people who think it will be seen by a common, broader audience and will draw readers to their site. Invitations from bloggers wishing to attract content and traffic are actually pretty common and all too often not well motivated.

So, what you're suggesting, William, is that we all blog under YOUR identity, on your network? Somehow I don't think that will appeal to the majority of bloggers out there. Besides, do you know the figures involved in becoming "the largest gathering of bloggers all over the world?" I mean the hard numbers; brand-building from scratch in a community of individualists like bloggers is a non-trivial undertaking.

Some of us in Vancouver already reach tens of thousands of people a day. An invitation to participate, unpaid, in a startup blog network on is perhaps not as attractive an opportunity as you might expect.
