    Nice analysis, Walter! I was already blogging, but not often enough, and joined EA expressly because I felt it would give me the extra motivation that I needed to finish a redesign I've been contemplating and commit my thoughts to e-paper. I also welcomed another way to connect with people in the Edmonton area, and so far my EA portfolio reflects that – I've mostly bought #yeg stocks. Of course the way I use EA may change over time, as the platform (and my stock there) matures.

    I definitely find myself retweeting more items from other people now, and I find more of my posts and tweets get retweeted as well.

    I know that because of Empire Ave I think more about what I post and post more often.

    I still don't fully understand how the project plans to develop?
    I understand that people may be making money in a real way if they are developing relationships with clients and consumers. As a blogger, it is a way for me to connect with more people…but, in many ways, it's just a fun social networking tool…How might future plans affect someone like me who is not a business owner?

    Hi Joanne, the idea is to build community around this activity. All the other points you make are included. The activity is fun, engaging and a way to connect. I believe there are ways to benefit from the activity to support your online objectives should that include building relationships and traffic to your blog. It is certainly early days however, and so what's interesting is that we all have an opportunity to help “influence” the future of Empire Avenue. Thanks for reading and for your comment.
