Once you have written your TLog, Tenuous Links will help you promote your message. Every TLog entry published will appear, at least for a short while, in a prominent position on our home page. In addition to this there will be a notification of each publication on our microblog TLitter, and your TLog entries will be available for syndication using both RSS (Really Simple Syndication) and Atom feeds.

Until someone tells us better, we feel that this support in promoting your online message is unique to Tenuous Links.

The basic idea is to provide a way of finding websites that isnít dictated by the complex algorithms of a multi-million dollar search engine. Instead we adopt a more manual process that rates each site we list against five key factors of aesthetic, usability, speed, quality of service and originality. If thereís a great website that we donít list then please let us know using add site and we will get on the case. Between us we can then make Tenuous Links a comprehensive directory of the Web's best sites.

Social Bookmarking

You will then be able access you list of favourites from anywhere you gain access to the web. This could by at home, abroad or in the office.

Once you have selected a favourite, the social nature of Tenuous Links kicks in with your good taste being broadcast on both the Tenuous Links microblog and in one of the portlets on your personal Tenuous Links hub page. A hub page is like a personal home page, but you will see more when you register (as we hope you will).
