Perth bloggers need a collective noun

  2. […] What I am looking for is to take feeds from a variety of sources and put them into a single feed or feeds. Two reasons, one is take the feeds from my fellow Port80 members; multiple personality Kay, Adrian, Miles and Myles. So I can use it instead of a blogroll and also make it available to the others in the group and beyond to encourage each other to keep up with regular quaility postings. If you have any ideas on what to call a bunch of Port80 bloggers, Kay would like to know. […]

  3. […] a year ago Miles, Kay, myself and others where talking about about a collective noun for Perth bloggers both on the web and at the pub. At some stage the name West Coast Bloggers, a play on the West […]
