The response to my previous post looking for bloggers was completely underwhelming. So let's try a different approach.
I'd like to know what other sites and blogs you regularly visit for networking news, reviews, gossip, etc. I have a few, but I'd like to know where you go.
Just post a Comment below. No login is required. Thanks!
And please put links to the sites you like in your comments!
SmallNetBuilder is fortunate to have a talented and faithful audience. Our best contributors have always come from our readers, and I'm always looking to tap that vast wealth of experience.
But good people also tend to be busy people who don't have the hours that it takes to research and prepare they kind of in-depth articles and reviews that we do. On the other hand, you do have the time to visit SmallNetBuilder regularly and I'd like to have fresh stuff for you to read each time you visit.
It has been SmallNetBuilder's policy to not publish articles written by vendors. The reason is that most vendor-supplied articles are basically advertising in a different format.
But sometimes the articles really are informative, even though they carry a built-in bias toward the author's company's product. So I'm thinking of trying this out.
These articles will have the author's company affiliation clearly identified and carry a short disclaimer so that readers will know that the views expressed are the vendor's and not SmallNetBuilder's.
So what do you think? Should we let companies contribute articles? Let me know by leaving a comment below. Thanks!
If you have been using the TomsHardware front page to see when we post new articles, you'll need to change your habits. Sometime very soon our Articles will no longer be featured there.
This will mark the end of our transition from being a TG Publishing partner site to being an independently owned and operated site. While we have valued our long relationship with TGP, we feel that we will be able to better serve you by being under own own management.
We hope that you'll now come directly to the site to see what's new, or use our main RSS article feed.
But no matter which way you arrive, we're glad that you're here!
You may have noticed a slight change to site navigation. I've removed the "Browse All.." side boxes and instead added a submenu to the top navigation bar.
The sub-nav bar changes when you mouse over the main topics to provide one-click access to any section from the current page. And as a side benefit, the sub-menu also provides an indication of the current section.
Just post a comment to register kudos, complaints and suggestions!
