If you’re looking for a cool way to share all your wants and get rid of a few things you no longer need throughout the blogosphere, you’ll definitely want to check out Ubokia. It’s kind of like Craigslist, but geared more towards blogs, so you’re connecting with people that you already share common interests with. Plus, even though the blog world is huge, many of us are connected somehow through far fewer than six degrees of separation, and transactions typically go much smoother when you’re dealing with people that you have some type of connection to.Personally, I prefer buying from someone that I know in some way, whether in real life, or through connections that I’ve made online. Aside from having a higher level of trust in those people, if I’m going to part with money for an item I need, it would be nice if a friend, reader, or someone else I’m connected to could benefit from it in some way. Times are tough, and every little bit helps. Given the choice between buying a new book in the store and a slightly used one from my favorite blogger, I’ll go with my favorite blogger every time!
Aside from the more pleasant transactions, Ubokia makes it easier for both the buyer and the seller to get what they need. Potential buyers can post a “want list” of the items that they need the most. Sellers can browse or search the want lists, then connect with potential buyers who need what they have. Basically, it’s like having a built-in customer list. Plus, with uTrust, Ubokia is the safest way to buy online.
