You didn’t think I wasn’t going to include one of my own now did you? Rest assured, I’ve only got 3 sites at the moment, and you’re on one of them, so don’t expect me to be plugging my own stuff too often.
I created mBlip as a YouTube aggregator site. It checks for interesting new videos every hour. Sometimes it gets a little buggy, but when it does I just give it a lobotomy and restart it. The posts are self-populating. Other than wiping its memory when it goes off the rails, mBlip automagically puts up new content as it finds it. It’s going on 7 years, and I visit it most every day. It does have a sister site called EVsoup that is basically mBlip, but mostly limited to the topic of electric vehicles.
I don’t run any ads on it, don’t make a dime off it, but the videos are embedded from YouTube, so it’s a safe bet that google is able to track you through it.
So that’s it for week 1 of “Better Things”.
So what did you think? Leave a comment below and let me know if you have any ideas for improvements.
