So. I tried a search and found nothing on here. Google's giving me pr articles, for the most part. And I'm not sure if this should go here or in blogging/social networking and I'll explain why, so mods feel free to move.
The why is Storylane's actually another site where you can post and read others' stories-but in this case it's personal life stories. (Actually, under the writings category one of the prompts is to "write an awesome short story.") Soooooo, hmmm. They're publishing short stories too.
Anyway, a pseudonym of mine rec'd the below email. What was interesting is this pseudo has no blog. They must have gotten the email from a book.
Of course my pseudo signed up to check it out. In theory, it's very cool. You share stories. There's categories for topics and ques you can answer w your story. And there's some intriguing life stories and ques.
But what I cared about was my content, how I'd be offering it for free, and who gets to own it if I do. So if you dig, and you had to dig a bit, you can find the about us. If you scroll down there's a whole section about rights, and if I'm reading it correctly, it's all about how you're waving them bye-bye.
Curious to see what others think and have heard or exp'd (if you've tried it).
I have been working for a while on Storylane, a product that I believe a blog owner like you will appreciate. Storylane works like a blogging platform but is social from the ground up. Your content can be categorized by you and then discovered by our fast growing community. Storylane can breathe new life into the content you created for your old blog and hopefully connect you with people, places, and ideas that can add value and meaning to your life.
Would you like to give us a try? join us here and add a story or two (feel free to use stories that are already on your blog)
