NOTE: Big Idea on Back Porch
I'se thinkin' of a blog make-over.
Thangs git stale when ya' jes' git over comfortable wif 'em.
So I'se hopin' ya'll will hep me wif' research.
This Front Porch is whar' I will still wanna keep it mostly light hearted. And even a wee bit gossipy. Tell a story or two. Natcherly, folks will be free to speak they minds (no R-rated lingo though!).
But what does all ya'll like / not like about the set up? I'se been happy enough wifout comment moderation, an' like to make the flow as easy as possible.
How often do ya check blogs? if a post is changed ever few days or jes' onc't a week--do it matter much? After ya make a comment, does ya look back to see if thar's a response from Aunty or others?
What about length? if a post is mor'n a few paragraphs is that a deterrent? Does ya hate post that doan have no photos of imagery?
Mebbe ya noticed that I changed the background color, but so far, thas' all. I'se prolly gonna keep the template, cause it is real simple. But are there widgets or gizmos that oughta be used? eliminated? Font size? Colors? Ease of links?
Some folks come and never come back--a few wrote to say that din't care fer the Cracker -speak. (Aunty doan much care about traffic count--I'se more interested in a good exchange, but iffin' the dialect is a major irritant mebbe is could be moderated some.)
Reckon I oughta say that my idea ain't to build no New Improved Porch. Jes' wanna check to see iffin' some rearrangin' of the furniture will make a more hospitable place fer folks.
What does ya'll like best? Wish was changed most?
