In the last meta post about the blog, several volunteers graciously stepped up and offered their time and ideas to creating a community blog. I've also created an LL chatroom specifically meant for discussing the blog where we can immediately propose ideas. However, there are a few things to discuss before we actually start with the idea:
First, is having a blog practical and within the scope of what our community's users can maintain?
Secondly, as Flimzy pointed out, if we do decide to start up the blog, we must first ask ourselves
What is the intended purpose [of the blog]? (drive traffic here? Educate regulars? Expand on answers provided here for newbies? Link sharing/SEO for members' own blogs? etc) The answer(s) to our intended purpose will heavily inform how we move forward.
This is a vital question and needs some serious answers, and I'd like to hear your thoughts on the subject.
Have at it.
