The Blue Fish Network, formed in 2005, has today officially closed.
I’ve sent email to the remaining members explaining my reasoning. It’s probably past due, as small, general networks were never really going to survive unless they built a thriving community. We, unfortunately, never made it.
Make no mistake, I valued the contribution to the network of each member past and present, and I’ll continue to read the blogs of those who are still writing. I also know that I owe some of my current standing in the ‘blogosphere’, albeit a small one, to some Blue Fish members.
THANK YOU ALL!
As to what happens to the Blue Fish Network Ã¢â‚¬â€ I would like it to remain a way to network with people – many of whom will be bloggers and their blogs – but I’ll not be pushing it as a blog network, nor calling for official membership, nor doing loads of automated aggregation of web sites.
Exact plans? Not sure yet. I’ll enjoy the rest of the summer, then think about doing something in the fall.
