  • Under Consideration
Like you don't have enough on you rplate...but hey, here's an idea! This site's really become a community - now, keep in mind, I have no idea anything about space requirements or bandwith usage, but I do think this might help with traffic.

Reading Donmari's eloquent post about the scary day she had, I thought it'd be great to talk about why it is I so badly want to go buy beer. Now, I could put that in non fiction and call it my Day, and so could everyone else, and we'd end up with a bunch of BLOGS.

Rather than posting my dumb poems on my personal blog, I'd rather just write that blog here on my profile page. I realize the scope of this site is creative writing, and as much as I'd like to continue spewing creative crap, sometimes, like today, I just want to write about my day. (and submit unsolicited idea after idea)

I spend more time here than on Facebook or Spaces, which both now annoy me, so I'd rather (here's the gem) tell my friends they can find my blog on Protagonize (traffic, kaching, kaching). This also gives my friends access to my stories and those with which I've favourited.

They might even love the site so much (and it's a lovable site) they may just register. Or come back to read stories AND blogs from some of the best writers east/west of the Mississipi.

I have to work tomorrow. But work today made me want beer,

Man, you're just full of good ideas, aren't you? :p

I like this one -- author blogs on their profiles. I'll see what I can do. Feel free to flesh out how you'd like it to work (maybe talk it up amongst yourselves here) and I'll look into it in July after I get groups out the door.

That would be pretty awesome... I was thinking a discussion board would help out with stuff like Donmari's post about her day, and this place seems like it would work for that if there was a link on the main page that said Discussion (or something other than Umm.. I Need Help?) That's if you're expecting people to write back to you... if you just want to ramble about something and you don't care if anyone sees it, then a profile blog would be appropriate. Hm...

Of course I suppose you could allow discussions on each blog...

Okay, I don't want this to replace discussions -- that's coming with groups and I'm building the functionality specifically for the site.

This area is just for support - feature requests, suggestions, bug reports, problems, etc. Let's please try and keep to just that. :)

I would love blogs, maybe you could allow commenting on blog posts?

Yup, if I do this one, the blogs would have to allow commenting.

This could really be a good idea. My question is... would the blogs be rateable? (At the moment, I have no strong feelings either way in this matter).

No, blogs will be totally separate and not rateable. :)
