Comments are the by product of blogging. Yet Kalusudda’s comment blog has done something interesting if not new by flipping the traditional blog model. The innovativeness of the idea is its simplicity. No fancy technology or hacks.
The blog about the comments Kalusudda has left through out the Sri Lankan blogoshere. Might sounds like a potentially dry catalogue of an active blog reader. Some could claim that its another form of comment spam. It is none of the above – primarily because of the content. The interesting prospect is that Kalusudda’s comment blog can become an overview of the discussions going on in parts of the Sri Lanka blogoshere. A sort of personalised “meta” commentary on the kinds of discussions going in the blogopshere. Something that might not turn up on blog aggregators or RSS feeds. The closest analogy I can think of is acharu.org for comments.
I think the strength of this blog will rest on Kalusudda’s ability spot where the iinteresting conversations are and direct readers to them. A role that could make Kalusudda the blogospere’s comment correspondant. Or perhaps its gossip colounnist. Maybe even the comment King. Only time will tell. Kalusudda is definitly a new blog worth tracking..
Disclosure: Kalusudda has commented about my blog & linked to it a few times.
