I was browsing the Internet on blogs, blogging and online blog communities when I came upon Thoughts.com, which offers users the chance to share their thoughts via the creation of free blogs or personal online journals at the said website. What is interesting about Thoughts.com is that it offers free unlimited bandwidth for uploading photographs, videos, and podcasts. Thoughts.com offers features an online community chat and community forums that online users can join. Such is a place to meet new people and share thoughts, novel ideas and all. What is particularly interesting about Thoughts.com is that it allows online users the chance to decide for themselves whether to make a particular blog post public or not – or taking it another step further – deciding whether to make a specific blog post viewable only by friends and family!
Another 20-30 minutes of browsing Thoughts.com shows that it is more than a 100% free online blog community. Thoughts.com integrates additional features that online users would not find on other blog sites. What are these features? Besides the unlimited bandwidth, photo, video and podcast sharing, and community forum features, Thoughts.com integrates a live news discussions feature! Indeed, Thoughts.com thought of everything! I guess, after all is said and done, Thoughts.com is truly a place for people to share their thoughts – publicly or in the company of friends.
What further sets it apart from other online communities is its user rating system, which allows fellow Thoughts.com members to rate each blog posts, photos, podcasts, and video blogs! The ratings are then calculated via a weighted average to determine one’s overall user rating! And get this friends, most active members with high average user ratings are eligible to win an all expense paid retreat to a fun new location every year! What kind of trips? In 2007, the winner got the chance to go to Las Vegas, Nevada! Wow! I wouldn’t be surprised if Thoughts.com evolves into a worldwide online community of bloggers soon! Such thoughts aren't far-fetched! And I kid you not!
