This is even better. This is a great start.

Some of you may have been following the navel-gazing conversation over at Metroblogging about its identity vis a vis Nashville Is Talking. Now there’s bound to be the question of MB’s identity vis a vis Music City Bloggers. Lesley even commented that at some point, the MCB people should meet with the MB people to figure it all out, and she’s right. So far, though, we do have some cross-over between the blogs and there are conversations taking place behind the scenes. Blue Lingerie

I do think it’s important that there are conversations taking place out in the open, too, so I’ll open that subject up here as well as there. What’s interesting about Metroblogging is that it’s effectively a regional blogging franchise, which means, among other things, that it has plenty of domain name credibility, which is good, but it also comes with an overarching set of expectations. None of those expectations are all that stringent, though, and for the most part, we’ve been free to interpret our identity as we see fit. Brown Lingerie

The advantage I see of a place like Music City Bloggers, though, is the strength of a group of people who have felt a part of something they liked, and want to do it even better. The identity is wide open, the rules are wide open, and the people who get to determine the identity and the rules are themselves the primary contributors. To me, that’s ideal. Green Lingerie

So far I see several folks talking about the aggregator, which is clearly important. That’s noted.

But what else will it take to make Music City Bloggers your favorite Nashville blog? Comments! We want comments.
