What will a linkblog look like in 2015?

I'm still mostly a CSS newbie, but I'm kind of functional, I can build a UI with it, and not create a total mess. But I'm still mostly designing stuff that's like the interfaces I was doing before I was really using CSS.

I want to do a grand redesign of my web presence. I've got all these bits scattered all over the place, and am gradually bringing them together. There are good elements in all the approaches I have, but I need to really do this one right -- my linkblog. Where everything I publish online will at least be linked to, if not be fully present. There's going to be a lot of new stuff coming together here.

Normally I'd hunt around looking for prior art, and I have, but there really isn't anything good that I want to emulate. Product Hunt is kind of the state of the art in linkblogs, but there isn't that much there. is also nice. Tumblr, of course.

What I'd like to do is find a way to ask the CSS hacker community to look at this problem with me, and if possible help make decisions about how this should work. If it works, maybe there will be something to go into Bootstrap or stand alongside it.

The bigger question is how can we create cross-discipline collaborations? I would know who to talk to if I wanted someone to review a new namespace for RSS, but don't have way to ask for help for the things I most need help with, like CSS.

It seems if we could figure this out, we could have lots of these kinds of collaborations.
