Neatorama's biggest strength and biggest weakness is that there is no specialization to the stories. I think you might attract more users if there was something, anything that was a Neatorama staple that made me check back looking for particular weekly columns. The closest to that you have right now are those bathroom reader things, and those are pretty hit-or-miss for me. What ever became of Miss Celania's video blogging? I remember the raisin milkshake then nothing.
We aim to please, which is why Alex has graciously allowed me to experiment with this post: a weekly tour of interesting tidbits in geek culture. Do you like it? Would you like to see more? Share your feedback in the comments.
