There are still a lot more sites to go through by the end of today, but since I said everyone would know by the 30th if they are in or not, that’s what I am sticking with. Don’t know what I was thinking.
Well, I’ll have to try again 4th time round. Next time will make sure everything is set up the way I like it, then if I don’t get accepted I will still be happy with my site and just accept the obvious – 9rules and I have different tastes 🙂
I guess round 3 is winding down to the last few hours… I still have a little bit of hope that I might get accepted.
I hope my site got a chance, since the server was down for a few days in the middle of this month. This is probably not the place to post this, but 9rules could use more sites in other categories, like sports.
mmm naps. once I had a nap when I was 6. and when I woke up, I was going to go to a friends house, but I over slept and couldn’t go over.. I cried.. but I still take naps, and still miss out on things.. but its either that or getting cranky and being sent home from things..
So .. is it over now? Just in case there was a glitch in the Internet and you had troubles .. please RESEND your acceptance email to HART@oblivious-to-all-common-sense-and-despite-it-all-is-quite-optimistic-there’s-still-a-chance-even-though-its-december-now.com
Chill out? I wasn’t unchilled, I just felt I was making a perfectly rational observation: (unless I’ve missed something) 9rules is looking for sites to fill niches and categories that are thus far unfilled. The category of following ultra-popular/mainstream technews (eg. Firefox releases) is pretty heavily saturated already.
If a blog told me GW Bush was the President of the USA and I didn’t know that, I’d find it pretty damn noteworthy, so uh yeah, chill out.
karmatosed: Yeah probably, but it really would have been out of place and unfair to start making comments about quality as well as editorial direction.
In truth though, they both come under the heading of signal (as opposed to noise), right? It’s easier to be signal when you aren’t drowned out by a cacophony of voices saying the same/similiar things as you.
Ultimately for those of us who look like we haven’t got in, if we want to it gives us something to aim for. Having aims may not lead to being successful but will result in improvements and upping of games – so it can’t be bad. Personally, I can think of a lot I am going to work on in time for the next round and for the in the future of my blog. That is one of the great things about a website – it can be constantly evolving.
