Sub-Blogs, Cross-posting, and format stuff
So there has been a good discussion of the purpose of sub-blogs, the frequency which sub-bloggers should cross-post, etc. in the last thread.
I think sub-bloggers should use their good judgment, cross-posting their more substantive material to the front page. Also, sub-bloggers should keep an eye on the front page and try to fill in on slow days, and especially weekends.
Even better, if a sub-blogger is responding to someone on the front page or on one of the other sub-blogs a cross post couldn’t hurt.
Beyond this, I will see if I can put together a Super Feed that brings all the blogs together into one subscription, and maybe a page that aggregates excerpts of all the posts, making it easier to scroll through everything on the site at once.
There is also always the option of transforming the entire site into something that weaves all these blogs together more seamlessly, though we would lose the front-page altogether and move to a web of solo-blogs. Not sure how I feel about that, or how it would work in practice.
