Announcing ClimbingVibe

by Tom Markiewicz on September 17, 2008

Today I’m announcing the launch of ClimbingVibe, a community driven links site for climbing, bouldering, and mountaineering related articles and blog posts.

ClimbingVibe quickly lets you find the most relevant and interesting climbing content. When I started blogging on All Climbing, there were surprisingly few climbing blogs. Now there are hundreds and it’s tough to read them all (and believe me, I am trying). And that doesn’t include the various other climbing sites, portals, forums, and online magazines.

The main goals of ClimbingVibe are to make it easier for climbers to find quality posts and to promote the best climbing writing on the internet. I’ve been posting interesting climbing links and news in short “Quick Sends” posts, but there is simply too much good stuff to always get them in these. ClimbingVibe will hopefully fill this need.

Composed of short posts, ClimbingVibe items typically highlight a single link. Posts and comments on these items can be made by anyone (even anonymously), but to reduce spam numerous protections have been built in.

New visitors to the site are also encouraged to register. Registering, while not required to read or comment on posts, provides the following benefits:

  • Ability to vote on posted climbing items.
  • Posts and comments include the full URL to your website or blog.
  • CAPTCHAs on posts and comments disappear when you’re logged in.

The site initially has a minimalist layout by design, but this will likely change quickly as the site grows.

There are some exciting features that will be released in the upcoming months as development continues. The major ones will be mentioned briefly here on All Climbing and the rest will be posted to ClimbingVibe itself.

I’m very interested in what you think. Please comment your thoughts on this and leave any suggestions to improving the site.

    May I just say what a comfort to discover an individual who genuinely knows what they are discussing on the web. You definitely know how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people need to look at this and understand this side of the story. I can’t believe you’re not more popular since you most certainly have the gift.

    I am trying to find a good blogging site where I can actually get viewers or readers to view my blog. I have tried blogspot and live journal with no real success. Does anyone know of any good sites where I can actually blog and get readers?. . Another thing is any tips to get readers to your blogs? Should you follow a theme or how do you need to advertise or if you keep posting will they come to you?. . Please no spam. Thanks.

    I have a diet blog i just started, i have about 3 posts, someone said i should start promoting i now. I thought i should wait until i had at least 10 posts and feedback from a few people in various forums before I promote it so maybe in 2 weeks. What do you think?.

    I believe that avoiding refined foods is a first step so that you can lose weight. They might taste fine, but prepared foods include very little vitamins and minerals, making you eat more just to have enough strength to get with the day. For anyone who is constantly consuming these foods, transitioning to cereals and other complex carbohydrates will make you to have more electricity while feeding on less. Good blog post.

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the page layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?
