This has taken a really long time to write. But, the clarity has come, finally!
Remember those old times, when a friend would recommend a book to you and would give you a brief on why you should read it. Just enough information to trigger your interest. We have many good recommendation sites for books on the internet but there is still dearth of sites which recommend good articles on the internet.
Per my observation, people are spending more time reading articles than they are reading books. In office catching a quick break or in a cab browsing news articles – we are reading more and more articles on the net.
But, no two people have the same taste. I like articles on Movies and Philosophy while you like articles on Science and Business. And so, we propose Needull as a possible solution.
The Magnets pick the best needulls and post it on the site writing a short reason on why others should also read the article.
And as a reader, we get the best hand-picked articles (needulls).
Inviting people to contribute and read on Needull.
Happy reading 🙂
Please drop a mail on email@example.com and we will invite you to become a Magnet.

I am probably cynical, but thinking people will come and read what they should go and read strikes me as optimistic.
What a cool theme! 😊
Plus, a very big thank you for your recent decision to follow Learning from Dogs. Very much appreciated.
This actually sounds like a good idea. How did you come up with the name “needull”? Just curious.
Thanks Bill! I was actually looking for needle.com taking out needle from the phrase “needle in a haystack”. That domain was already taken. So, had to settle for this variation 🙂
Hi Needull. Thank you for wanting to follow my poetry adventures. Very interested in all things paranormal conspiracy theories and observing life. Writing a passion that keeps me sane and alive! Great to meet you. The Foureyed Poet.

I like the concept of having articles about everything on your blog. Also, I totally read that Hillary Clinton “parody” on Medium. It actually sounds like she was the one who was writing it.
Very clever concept! Best of luck with it. BTW, thanks very much for liking my post on the benefits of coconut water.

Love your concept and the heading and into. Thanks for the follow and I’ll be dropping by to see what’s going on here.
Seems cliche to say it but, `thanks for visiting my blog and liking my poem `Proclivity’. The premise you present for `needull’ is both intriguing and worthy of its effort to broadcast what is available out there on the great Internet. It is not difficult to be lost amidst the vastness of its content so, any help for others to find those interesting nuggets of insight or expression is appreciated. All the best
Love this idea!
Thanks for the follow & stopping by. Enjoying reading through your blog !
I’ve been writing all day and am not supposed to be online on writing days but always check my email for ones regarding my blog and there you were! How’s that for a run-on sentence? 🙂 Great to meet, Needull. I do hate calling you Needull and would much rather address you by name. May we know it? I’m always finding interesting articles on the Net, but being an eclectic reader, anything goes regarding subject matter. My original blog posts tend to be inspirational/spiritual in nature. If any of this sounds like what you’re looking for, then sign me up. I’m an educator by nature and love sharing as I learn. Thanks for the follow, and best of luck with this fabulous idea! 🙂
Thank you Tina for your very detailed reply. We are constantly looking for great article recommendations. If you are interested, let me know. Will send you an invite to become a contributor. As a website it is called needull but the articles are posted by individuals like Neelabh, Aayush, Neetu and others.
Hi, thanks for the follow – this is an interesting concept and I’ll definitely be popping back 😊

Hi Needull, Thanks for following my blog. I went through your blog and its an interesting concept that you have brought up.
Hello Needull. I thank you also for following my painting blog. I like the clever name. Kevin
What an interesting, and stellar concept! Thanks for following my ‘needull’! Makes a girl feel all fuzzy and special inside! Happy writing and reading!
Thank you for linking the concept 🙂
Ooh, this sounds great; I’m going to have to do further investigating on your site! In the meantime, thanks for following and liking a post on The Expositrix! (After a stint battling lots of chaos, I’m hoping to return to the posting in the next few days.)
Hello Needull, my name is Gregory Thomas. I’m a writer, and post my poems and stories on my blog at “Cascadialegends.wordpress.com” I just wanted to thank you for liking my poems and blog. I wish for the best of luck to you in your endeavors, let’s keep in touch. 🙂
-from your friend,
This is a great idea. Glad to be in your company. Anything can make for a good article, or needull. I read a post on a different blog that stated book reviews were always boring. What a terrible thing to say. It all depends upon the writer of the review. Anyway, I love what you’re doing.
I love a fresh idea with the courage to go forward. Best wishes! Thanks for including me and following my blog.
Hello there, thanks for appreciating my writing, and yes, great idea! Very creative and refreshing in this digital era. Much love to you ♡
Interesting concept and interesting blog.

Hi! Thanks for the FOLLOW and the LIKES!!!
I’m touched by the follow and the likes; thank you so much
What a good concept. Don’t know why I haven’t seen the like before. Thanks for the follow. Reciprocated, Inigo
I nominated you for a Blogging Award. https://hasidic.me/2016/12/13/blogging-award/
feel free to accept it. I really appreciate your writing. All the best
I just wanted to pop over and thank you for your recent visit to my blog. Thanks also for the likes and the follow as well.
Thank you for following Storyteller. — Ray
Great concept! And I’m sure you have great ideas for follow-up! Thanks for following Oh, the Places We See. Here’s hoping that people are still reading blogs as well as articles, novels, etc.
What a neat concept!!! Thanks too, for the ‘Follow’ on mine 😀
Hi, and thanks for the follow! Will browse yours too🌺
Neelabh, This is Shilpi here and I would like to be a Magnet. I write articles on banking and also provide links to articles worth reading related to banking. I change blog accounts every year. This particular account is my latest 2017 blogs. Kindly add me as a contributor ands please add ‘Banking’ or ‘Finance’ or ‘Economy’ as one of the headings.
Thanks Shilpi, will add you as a contributor. You would be familiar with the format of the posts.
Hi, and thanks for your Follow. I really like the concept of what you’re doing here — congratuations!
Hello and thank you for visiting the Real Reality Show Blog. I love your idea and have already enjoyed some great reading here. Hmm, I think I may have been outrealitied.
I’m glad you liked my post “Let’s put on a show.” Now that the festival is behind me, I’ll be writing about revisions, finding an agent and the editing and marketing processes, experiences I hope other writers learn from as I go through them.
Definitely an interesting concept!
Thank you for finding and following my blog. I’m off to check out some more of your site!
I love the articles being published. But discussion is important as well. That happens only through interaction. How does one leave a comment on an article on YOUR site (not the site where it was originally posted)? You are bringing like-minded readers together – there’s potential for learning from each other.
Hi Priya, we will surely add the discussion section in future. Thank you so much for liking the articles posted.
Thank you for the follow! Have perused and will continue to do so.
I am sure you have received many awards but you deserve the recognition. I am excited to let you know that I have nominated you for the Bloggers Recognition Award. I am glad to have come across your blog. Have a look at my recent post for the rules, questions, etc. I hope you will accept the nomination. Congratulations!
Great blog!! My own blog, http://www.leagueofgrey.wordpress.com, is probably too obtuse for general audiences but I’m acknowledging your creativity. I’ll be reading more in the future. Thank you.
Thank you Jonah. Wish you the best for your blog.
Interesting concept! I just found you.
Thank you Janet.
Thank you, Needull, for following my blog!
What a cool blog idea — and btw, thanks for following teresabruce.me. I’m hoping to reach a huge group of new friends to virtually drive-along on the yearlong road trip recap. Cheers!
You have a nice blog👍
Hi! Thanks a lot for joining Thoughts of SheryL!
Great blog! 🙂
Thank you for choosing to follow my blog Bobbing Around. Hope you like some of my essays there.
I have been following your site for a while now so I am not new to Needulls! But I just thought I’d stop by to say that this is an amazing initiative 🙂
Thank you Aishwarya
Really love the concept of your blog!
Thank you 😀
