Plinky launched this past week to offer a microblogging platform for your personal blog. Plinky was founded by Jason Shellen, a former engineer of blog platform Blogger, to help "cure writer's block" Plinky prompts its users to answer a question a day to keep the personal blog content flowing.
Plinky offers an well designed application that makes it easy to share your thoughts on a number of topics and across a number of other social networks as well as follow other Plinky users as part of its own little social network.
For example, once you answer a question or complete a prompt you can place on your blog as shown below:
I put on something a little more comfortable when I get home from a long day out and about. This is just so that I can relax at home more easily.
Plinky is a simple but creative concept that should help personal bloggers to keep sharing. It appears Plinky is taking on building out a user's personal profile one prompt at a time and it will be interesting to see how they use the data they are collecting. According to VentureBeat, Plinky has a rather seasoned team behind it and has taken $1.5 million in funding so they should be juicing up the personal blog conversations for the next couple years.
