Grogger offers a new take on the classic blog. Rather than offering a single user a way to get their thoughts and ideas across to an online audience, Grogger is an application for an entire group of users to do the same thing. The name Grogger literally translates to “group blog.” Communities can contribute to a centralized resource for information and updates on the group as a whole or anything else they deem news worthy. All that with handy user controls so specific authors can be tracked and old posts found easily.
Grogger is a new internet application that has really started getting its feet wet this year. The idea stemmed from the original blog concept, which has surged in popularity in recent years. Grogger hoped to fill a void for groups of users who wish to contribute to a single blog, giving more opportunity for multiple voices to be heard. Today, Grogger is still growing as a new way to offer in-depth information to a large group of people. Success could be on the horizon for Grogger, but it is still too early to tell.
Grogger stands out because it is not a typical blog. Blogs have become very commonplace, just about everyone has one or has at least read one. Grogger has decided to take the standard blog and evolve it slightly. This concept may not seem like a brand new idea, but it does offer a new take on the old blog experience with features that come in useful to online communities.
Grogger is still going through its growing pains, with bugs that need fixed and a limited user base. The features it includes are many and come with an interface that is clutter free. Word is that eventually, Grogger will release premium options, but for now it is limited. What those features are remains to be seen, however they could improve the experience and make Grogger the next big thing in blogging.
Grogger presents new users with a very simplified registration process. Click the large button on the homepage to visit the “create new Grog” form. From there, you will need to enter a few basic details that include your name, email and a password as well as the site name for your new group blog. For the time being, some users may have difficulty accessing Grog due to account limitations during this developmental phase. Eventually, this limitation will be removed so everyone can Grog.
Grogger is currently a free application with no payment-required services. This may change in the near future, as premium features are created and added to the site. Until then, the price is as good as it gets – free! Of course, there are still some fixes and additions that should be made before Grogger can expect users to pay for a subscription.
Any group of people who wish to create a single resource for up to date information would really like the concept behind Grogger. Forums and social networks could use Grogger to pull from their user’s knowledge and experiences. This could also set the stage for a more interactive environment among valued members of an online community. These users can easily share opinions, reviews, thoughts and ideas to a large group of like-minded individuals. Grogger is a new way to get users more involved in online communities, and, in turn, generate more interested in the content offered.
