Seeking Feedback at Gutenblog.net

(I was going to put this up as a “Private” post for Contributors, but I doubt Jason and Gutenblog.net would mind any additional feedback it might net them as a public post)

I recently received this note:                                                                                      

“Hi,

I’m currently an intern for a startup that is working on creating a set of tools for power bloggers. We’re in early alpha stages, so we’re looking for help from bloggers to shape the product with their input and feedback. I wanted to speak with you regarding whether anyone at the The Blog Zone / The Blogger’s Bulletin or any of your users might be interested in providing input to develop a tool to solve their problems and inefficiencies in blogging.

A 15 minute chat should get us started.  I’m available Wednesday or Thursday morning this week (1/13 and 1/14) if any time then works for you.  Let me know a time and a number to reach you at and I’d be happy to call you then.

Thanks,

-Jason”

I replied:

Hi Jason,

Do you have a toll free line by chance or perhaps a list of questions you could send to us by email.  I wouldn’t be surprised if, under those conditions, you might find that a handful of Contributors from The Bloggers Bulletin who might get back in touch with you to provide information and feedback.  By the way, exactly what type of tool is your company developing for bloggers?
Thanks,
Chris

He responded:

Chris,

 

I don’t have a toll free number, but I do have skype. My username is jason.evanish.  If you prefer, I can email questions instead, but I find a conversation can be much more efficient and effective for both sides of a discussion.

 

You can find us at www.Gutenblog.net.  Presently, we allow users to manage all of their WordPress, Typepad, Blogger and Seeking Alpha blogs in one place by allowing for one click posting to any of the blogs while writing using the WordPress interface.  We’re in the process of developing additional features and so we’re hoping to get feedback and input from bloggers to deliver what they’re in need of most. I can send you an invite if you’d like to check out Gutenblog in its current state.

Let me know what you prefer for continuing our conversation.

 

Thanks,
Jason
