Bloggers: What would you like to see in the blog section?

Posted by Brock Beauchamp , 05 February 2015 · 1,736 views

Bloggers: What would you like to see in the blog section? I've been looking at the blog section of the site lately and see that it hasn't gotten any TLC since launch. I made some small changes to how the blogs are listed in the mobile section of the site this morning and that got me thinking... I'm not a blogger. I should ask you bloggers what you want changes you'd like to see made to the site.

I'm open to any suggestions, though obviously, time constraints may apply to whether the requested changes are feasible or not.

So, what would you like to see? More customizability in the blog sections, better image support, different sorting methods? Give me your feedback on anything blog-related and I'll compile the most requested changes and see what I can do about it.

Please don't suggest "carry over blog comments to the front page", though... I'd love to do that and it's a long-term goal but it simply isn't feasible right now. It'll get done at some point but that change will require a complete rethinking of how comments are generated and posted.

BTW, minor new feature added, everybody. Do you like a particular user blog and want to receive notifications when it updates?


Just go to that user blog page and at the top of the page near the blog title - remember, this is the blog itself, not specific entries - you'll see a "Follow this Blog" button.


Click that and you'll be notified every time the blog updates.

Hey, I only have one thought. I'm not sure most people know you can start your own blog on here. I knew because I've been a fan of MinnCentric since it started with Twins Daily. So maybe have an article or link on the top saying you can start your own blog? That's really all I can think of.


Thanks for promoting my article and I'll keep writing! Have a GREAT WEEKEND!

Good point. I should create a revised introductory post that's a little more comprehensive so people know exactly all that is available on the website.
