This is starting to feel like a MySpace widget version, only without the social networking part, what I mean is that this may be the new homepage, ie. a homepage for others to surf to that represents you on the web…the new Netvibes Universe is in the same game.
What represents you, what is the new homepage?
In a past post I was asking this question, and still think someone’s blog is their goto homepage, due to the sidebar.
But the new PageFlakes blog widget turns this around, you aren’t limited to the sidebar, you have a page with boxes, and you can also collapse these, thus fitting more on your page, position them as you like, something TypePad added with their drag and drop sidebar’s.
Now with the Blog Flake the original blog structure is no longer, but what I ask is, can you change the size of the blog flake so it becomes the dominant flake, giving the page contextual structure, in that your page is more about the blog, along with some other widgets.
Anyway, a widget format for blogging allows your blog to become more of a homepage.
