Why we built it and why you should want it.
First – why you want this?
If you don’t already have it. Get it now.
Dashblog is all about making blogg’n/twitter’n easier – so you’re out there doing your thing on the interweb and you see this really awesome thing. What do you do. Well first, don’t panic. Second you think how cool it would be to share with everyone, but then you think about how much work doing a screencapture or copying some embed code and then copying that to your blog or twitter (and don’t forget all the loggin’ in, creating post, saving post) whew! I got tired just writing about it.
Well with dashblog its all about one click (actually more like three) to getting what you see onto your blog/twitter. For you more professionally minded it has a ‘save as draft’ feature so you can save a video/image to a blog post and work on it later.
Second – why did we build this?
A couple of reasons. One, we knew we needed to blog more to promote this latest startup and being programmers we thought we could build some tool to speed up that process. Rather than write a bunch of text about something – screencapture it, draw some arrows and you done – clever insight to share with your friends.
On a more strategic level, snackfeed needs a tool for users to collect content that is out on the web.
Next – what is coming?
Some bug fixes, additional blog support and Channels! (more about that later….)
