At first, I am impressed by the fancy graphics and the pleasing UI. The ease at which I found my way around the navigation and through the site also is very nice. My concern is with being able to seed my blog posts. I already have a personal blog, so what should I use this column for?
Ideally, I would like to use it to seed my blog posts. Hopefully that would allow for me to increase my readership while adding to the newsvine community as well.
Overall... A nice concept, but we'll see how much I use it. I'll give it a couple of weeks and go from there.
