Is this overkill?

Rate this Entry
So we have forums, and we have articles, but now we have added blogs too? Maybe it's just me, but I think it is overkill. What would you post to a blog that wouldn't be a topic or an article? I don't know that I really care about your life story, ask Dusty how boring she thinks I am on FaceSpace and I don't use Twitter, but even if I do care can't you just post a topic about it? Maybe it is just crusty old man syndrome, I am about to be 35 after all, like you care.

    maybe the blog adds it so we can keep our own stuff in one place. instead of creating a bunch of threads in the forums that eventually fall off the face of the earth these will stay focused on ourselves or what ever material we desire to put up on our blogs. I think they are neat and while not everyone will or has to use the blogs I think those who will use them will enjoy the feature.

    Perfect type of thread for a blog. Not something for everyone, but useful none the less.

    Yeah blogs are great for those things that we want to post, but aren't really that important. There are so many threads in OtS that are just...something someone felt like saying, threads that aren't going to make it past a page and a half because there isn't really much to talk about. Blogs are perfect for this.

    I think having blogs are useful for thing that don't really make sense as a thread. Besides it isn't like you HAVE to read them

    I think that is a good way to look at it. Articles have a certain format that they must follow since they will be on the front page and have to have certain items.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the articles, but I'm not about to read every single one of them. Articles will help draw more people in as a whole since they will be on the front page. Blogs are meant to be more personal since as WileE said, they are web logs or web journals basically.

    For instance if I just want to vent about my day, I can do that in a blog without cluttering up the forums with seemingly pointless rants. I don't always feel like posting something in the "Man I really Hate it..." area so a blog would be good for that and only people who actually go digging a little to my profile will see what I have to say.

    And to civil- I thought the very same thing when we moved the first time... however, I guess we'll have to see where the community takes it.
