The 2009 Blog Improvement Project is starting one week from now, and I am really looking forward to it. If I counted correctly, there are currently 89 people signed up for the project, which is way more than I expected when I first proposed it!
That said, I have to admit I’m a little nervous; that many participants creates some administrative questions I didn’t have before. So, rather than flounder away on my own, I thought I would pose a few of them to my fellow bloggers:
What’s the best way to do post linking? I know there is Mr. Linky, but that site doesn’t work great with WordPress. Are there any other linking sites people have used or can recommend?
How should I keep track of participants? I’ve been putzing with Yahoo Pipes, but can’t seem to get it to work well — suggestions on another way or a better reader I could use so people can easily follow participants?
Do you like wrap up posts? Dewey always did a weekly wrap up post for Weekly Geeks that I personally enjoyed reading. Do you think something like that would be interesting to read for the BIP?
The first topic, posted on January 5, 2009, is going to be goal setting, but as sort of a pre-blog project question: What other blogging topics would you like to see covered? Are there any blog related topics you think would be most helpful to work on right away in the new year?
