Coming Soon:

Big News for Bloggers

If you’ve been following me on Twitter then you may have seen me drop a few hints about a ‘massive secret project’ that I’ve been working on.

Well today you guys are the first to get a sneak preview of what it’s all about. I’m afraid I still can’t give too much away about the project, aside from the domain name, and vague concept. However, I’ll be posting more details here soon, as the private beta test date approaches.

So without further ado here’s a first look at

Yes… I know it’s just a subscription form right now, but some of you may be able to guess certain things about the service from the page.

I’ve noticed in the blogging, and more specifically design communities that many comments are left, but that most of these go to a few large blogs. However, those leaving the comments often run awesome blogs that are simply neglected by commenters due to their size. These are the people driving these communities, the ones who are spending their time and effort giving feedback on other’s posts. Despite this, their own blogs will often show the depressing count of ‘(0 Comments)’, or at best a couple.

CommentBoost aims to tear down these imbalances, and give the average blogger the quality comments that they deserve. Again, I can’t go into the specifics of the service just yet, but it should work out that for each comment left by a member they receive approximately one comment back on their own blog. This is big news for those active commenters leaving 10-20+ comments each day.

I’ll post more information and screenshots of the service soon, but for now why not go:
