Last week Chloe, from Brastop blog reached me for an interview about Bratabase . I was more than happy to accept the interview of course.
We talked for a couple of hours, mostly about how the idea was born, what's the current status of the project and future plans and vision for the site. It was a very nice talk and I also learned a number of interesting things!.
Reading further I realize that I did not give proper credit to many of the characters mentioned:
- That UK girl whose blog I followed in 1999 is Charlotte Ionna
- I wish I could link to those forums I participated on, but they're long gone.
- Julia, from Balkonetka wrote about the site in 2010 which was a first boost in traffic
- This is the Thirty_twod LJ community that's mentioned in the article as the continuation of all those forums.
Also, I wish to thank the ladies who've been helping me with their input and ideas. Many of the latest improvements are here thanks to them:
