IndiBlogger members get an early peek into the working of Google’s Blog Compass
Being in the midst of the latest happenings in the world of blogging is something we love at IndiBlogger and this time around, it felt a bit more special when we received an email from Google asking for assistance with getting critical feedback on their new venture from the IndiBlogger community.
And Google loved it! Here’s what they told us:
Thanks to all of the trusted testers from IndiBlogger
who helped us test the app until now. Your input found 316 bugs and feature requests, over 80% of which have already been fixed.
It was very enterprising to know that Indian bloggers played a key role in sharing their experience with IndiBlogger and Google. However, we’re sure that every Indian blogger must have been ecstatic to talk about blogging, especially with a company that can make things happen for Blogging on a very large scale.
Blog Compass is an Android app that integrates with WordPress and Blogger.com blogs. It tracks all of your site’s statistics and helps you get inspired to write your next blog post.
It is available today as an open beta.
We thank everyone for their contribution. The sheer preciseness and magnitude of your feedback can never be quantified, in fact it is priceless and we’re positive that Google Compass will serve blogging well, because of your own unique experiences.
We are sure that every time we open Blog Compass, we will see a little bit of all of you in it.
For us, this activity reconfirmed our faith in the medium of blogging. It is an art that would never stop, a hope that would never be lost and as long as it remains on the open highway of the internet, it will continue to be the most credible and thought enabling source of information. Blogs don’t hide and there is something about that openness and freedom that cannot be denied.
Some awesome days ahead! Keep Blogging.
