I have one question for all of you, about the format of BTT.
This meme is set up for everyone to post their answers on their own blogs and then come back here to comment with a link. This works fine, and it gets traffic to everyone’s site, and it certainly has been working all this time, which is all good.
However, our numbers each week are climbing–which I think is fabulous (thanks, everyone!)–and it was one thing to click back and forth between each week’s post and the responses when there were 10 or 20 each week, but lately we’re closer to 60. That’s a lot of clicking!
So, here’s the question:
How would you feel about leaving your responses–or at least brief versions of your responses–in the actual comments, so that all the answers would be in one place?
The advantage to this, I think, would be that we could have actual discussions in the comments. And yes, it would save all that back-and-forthing.
The disadvantage would be that there would be fewer visits to your individual site, and, well, comments are usually only so long . . . Although we could certainly put brief answers and then, “For more, visit my blog” kinds of notes to encourage people to come visit when you post a photo or want to delve into lengthy answers . . .
Ultimately–what do you THINK?
I’m happy either way, but I want all of you to be happy, too….
(And, um, for this question, obviously, the answers SHOULD be in the comments, because this one really should be a discussion.) (grin)
Edited to Add: Thanks for the input everyone. We’ll be leaving things exactly as they are! I just want everyone to be happy (grin).
