Balancing blog content
There’s a fascinating thread of comments from readers at Matt Yglesias’s blog about finding an ideal balance in blog postings. I know you’ll be shocked to here this, but I tend to write long and tedious blog posts, so I offer all this without amendment to reform. (I have to communicate with discipline and coherence for a living; what’s the point of having my own blog if I have to be disciplined and coherent here too!) Still, it might be nice to take the the collective pulse of the southern gospel blog reading world on this issue, since it’s probably not a safe assumption that readers of a political blog have the same sense of things as readers of a blog about gospel music and culture. So consider this the place the tell me what to do and how to do it best. Short or long posts? Serious or marginal? Quirky or analytical? Snarky or deferential? Quick links or thoughtful reflections of whatever’s the latest issue or news? All, both, none, or something else entirely in between? I think it’s pretty clear I do a little of all this here and will continue to, but it’s probably a good idea to solicit feedback from time to time, though as I say, this is no guarantee of change.
