A couple of blogging-related ideas I've had, which I want to get feedback on:
First, would anyone out there be interested in a specifically European version of the Lefty Directory
? Or just a general directory of European political blogs? There's some interesting stuff being written out there that I think is getting overlooked, such as Dragan
's interesting perspective on Croatia, written in English.
Second, and this is much more vague, I was thinking about 'round-robin' writing earlier (where a group of writers create a story collaboratively, each one writing a chapter or section, then passing it on to the next one) and I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in a blogging variant of it? I was thinking of something where a group all choose a single topic to discuss, one writing about his or her thoughts on it then passing on to the next, who responds to what the first person wrote, then adds their own thoughts/opinions etc and passes it on to the next etc etc. It could either be something general, or a different form of political debate where you could bring in a range of different voices in the process.
And one last request - I've been upgraded to the new version of Blogger, so I can now add titles to my posts. However, I can't work out how to get them to appear on the posts themselves (and there doesn't seem to be any advice in Blogger's Help files). I assume it's just the matter of adding a bit of Blogger code to the template, but I can't work out what that code might be! I tried $BlogItemTitle$ (in the brackets that won't show up if I try and use them) but that didn't work. Any suggestions?
Anyway, if you've got any thoughts, let me know.
