blogging in joost
This entry is a test to see if the blogging tool within Joost is functional.
Earlier today I tried to use Joost and it crashed four times. I reinstalled the latest version and noticed this new service.
If this does actually work, it is a smart way for Joost to assist bloggers (supporters and critics) who are reviewing their updates. I can watch Joost programs and blog about them in real time… If it works.
So, it worked. The first changes I feel Joost should make to their blogging module is to provide the option to add tags, because the default is “uncategorized”.
I see this blogging option being beneficial to more than just Joost… Besides making it easier for Joost to get free promo through bloggers, anyone who wishes to review, document, or expand on any content within Joost now has the option to do so in real time.
If Joost ever gets into the live streaming business, anyone in the world could liveblog a conference regardless of whether they were actually there in person – as long as they could watch and blog within Joost.
UPDATE: The “blog this” option has been available since May, thanks in part to a beta tester’s suggestion:

A quick ‘Blog about this show’ button
A quick ‘Blog about this show’ and a ‘Read blogs about this show’ button would be pretty neat. So people can easily write about shows.
