I’d like to get your opinion on a few things.
2013 is going to be an interesting offseason. The Eagles have no coach, maybe no QB, and a Top 5 pick. There are lots of stories to cover.
Right now I cover things in 1 to 2 posts per day. Items are bunched up.
I’m considering changing that. Clemson QB Tajh Boyd just announced that he is coming back for his Senior season. In a new format, I’d make that a short post.
I heard Andy Reid on the Jim Rome show today while driving back from lunch. There wasn’t any ground breaking news in there (shock city, huh?), but it could be a good short post.
PE.com had Howie Roseman do a short interview to explain the coaching search. Another short post idea.
We have some RG3 news today.
And so on.
I would still do my long form posts. You know I’m addicted to writing thousands of words on oddball subjects.
The tricky part is comments. I really value the comments section of the posts because you guys share some brilliant thoughts. Right now each post is a conversation piece, for lack of a better phrase. If I put up 5 to 10 posts in a day, things will get a bit splintered.
I had a couple of idea. First, I could turn off the comments in the short posts and just leave them open in the long ones. They would be “Feature Posts” or something like that.
I could also leave comments open and just tell you that I won’t be able to answer every comment in the short posts. If you need an answer from me on a certain topic, save it for the Feature Posts. If you just want to speak your mind on that topic, go right ahead.
I really do value the sense of community we’ve got and don’t want to lose that. I am heavily influenced blog-wise by
I don’t read everything on those sites and don’t always agree with their opinions, but the volume of content and ability to mix quick items and long form writing really fascinates me. I’m also influenced by Twitter in the sense that not all of you are on there, but I see a lot of little nuggets of interest. Trying to fit all of them into a daily post or even two is a bit much.
My question is what you guys think of this idea. Good? Bad? Weird?
