Goodbye Dwigger

We've closed Dwigger effective immediately. After a nice initial splash in the media - traffic kind of dried up. Rather than let it turn into a spam link dump we decided to shut it down.

I would have taken some credit if Dwigger had been a smashing success - so I feel I must take the blame for the failed idea. I thought that voting for Tweets would be a slam-dunk - something vitally missing from the huge galaxy of Twitter content. The 'net thought otherwise. Traffic collapsed and we couldn't justify the cost of the dedicated server or time anymore.

Truth be told, even I didn't spend much time there - though I think it has something to do with my neural pathways being so seared for VideoSift only URLs.

Something I took away from the experience is that it's not that easy to start a successful web community - and the chances of catching lightening in a bottle twice are not that great.

That doesn't mean we're giving up on new projects - we have something special coming down the pipe that is not our project per se - but supports another very successful site.

VaroCMS is a one of a kind community platform and we're getting a lot of inquiries for other kinds of sites. Stay tuned.

Anyway - if you did use Dwigger - (DotDude, Maatc and others) thanks for showing up.
