@adigaskell Yes, that is a good point. I was thinking that it ought to be possible to categorize them by tags, but maybe that wouldn’t work and it would increase the likelihood of people adding tags just to get exposure across multiple categories, which wasn’t exactly the point of my suggestion. Get enough spam on a daily basis already.
Maybe make members responsible for whether they want their posts included or not? Set up a dozen or so categories, make each member responsible for selecting a single category under which each particular post is listed. Some categories would be self evident (SM, Writing, Marketing), others might be more broad ranging (Healthcare, Sport, Entertainment). Would be hesitant about including either ‘Politics’ or ‘Religion’ headings though – always seems to end badly!
The reason i like the idea is simply because I love looking at and studying headlines. Inevitably, the headline is the main thing that determines whether I open something in Newsfire or not.
And you’re right about the number of feeds, though I guess the number of blog posts will come down to how many and how often people write. I, for example, write a personal blog about once a week. I’m sure some members blog once a day, possibly even more, or run several blogs.
Would be interesting to see the output of the group though.
