Thoughts on More Cowbell
Thanks to everyone who took the time to share their thoughts regarding SFDB and made suggestions as to how we can make it better. Here's what we're going to do as a result.
Time is going to be a major determinant in anything we do here because, quite frankly, I have so little of it. I'm hesitant to add anything to this already full plate I have in front of me so the chances of bringing back something like the "Reader's Favorites" are slim to none, no matter how much it would add to the blog. To give you an idea of what I'm working with, it took me a full 2 hours to complete this morning's Sift and Cooler. Granted, there was an unusually large amount of material to review, but still...and I still have this evening's Sift to do. That's a lot of time to devote to anything each day, let alone blogging.
I'm going to try to do a weekend preview type of thing on Fridays with links to the relevant sources of information, but considering Critical Miami sometimes doesn't post his until after noontime, I'm not quite sure when it will be posted. Keeping in mind, obviously, that in order for it to be helpful, it has to be time relevant.
I'm also going to take Tilefortlauderdale's suggestion and break out the foodie blogs from the rest of the herd. They'll have their own blogroll in the sidebar. I've thought about doing this in the past but never got around to it. Look for that to happen this weekend.
I have already started to add a little bit more to the Cooler stories and will try to keep that going per the several requests that were made. As far as any additional commentary goes, folks, I'm leaving that up to you. The stats tell me that the traffic is here so if you all want a blog that is active with comments and opinion and discourse, start commenting. SFDB has a number of regulars that jump in, but I know there's a whole lot more readers out there. Don't be shy, chime in.
And with that, we continue on. Thanks so much for your continued support and your loyal readership.
