  • For me, the value of use Perl is that it has everyone in one place. I see everything that gets posted here (and read most of it); if you happen to write here, I’ll read you. In contrast, for me to specifically subscribe to any single-person weblog in particular, it has to meet a much higher interest bar than the use Perl community as a whole. So I very rarely follow people out of here, even if I used to read them while they were here.

    • I understand what you mean. Majority of blogs I read regularly are probably on use.perl for the same reason: they are in the same place. I played with RSS in the past but gave up for some reason.

        p.s. how do people feel about posting non-Perl stuff here? I personally like that, but I can't shake the feeling that a fear for posting non-Perl (AKA "off-topic") stuff here is a reason for some people, to start up their own blog elsewhere — and lose their audience by doing so.
