Blog Experiment

I started an experiment today. I call it a “message board in blog form,” and I have no idea if it will work. I swapped out our old forum (which gets a handful of relevant posts as well and some undesirable spammy ones) with, well, basically a blog. We’ve been noticing that: (a) users had to log in to post, and we’re not into that anymore…if someone wants to express their uncontrollable love, or excruciating hate-on, then they should be free to; and (b) people only really talk about a handful of things. So we thought why should there be a million discussions with only one or two replies, when we could centralise it all in a blog? By forcing the discussions into three or four threads, a stream of consciousness style flow will ensue. Won’t it?

I don’t know. Maybe this will work…maybe it requires more careful thought. I feel like I need to organise the flow better, and add some other authors that want to post new topics for discussion. Interested? Suggestions? Am I crazy? Leave comments…here or there.

  1. I like the idea. It may end up not working, but I think it has some potential.

    Perhaps the layout is less than clear, though — even knowing what the page was, I was utterly confused about what I was looking at for the first few minutes. (This might just be me, of course.)

    I wouldn’t mind lending a hand if you ever need / want it.

  2. that’s a great idea… make the guest less guilty of being a guest…

    wait… does that leave me out of a job and out of a very much obsessive Dears’ experience?… lol

    But again, I have to say I’m deliriously happy the new album’s done. CANNOT wait to hear it!!!
