Title: Second Sphere Blog Group
Post by: Narric on January 06, 2014, 10:36:19 PM
Had an Idea that this might be a different ad tool.

A fair number of Members run their own blogs, myself include.

Perhaps if more of the Bloggers of the forum made it known they were members of the Forum on their Blogs, maybe it would give a greater sense of "unity" ?

There are a few Blog groups around, so it does work, to an extent.

Just an idea.

When I get around to starting a Blog (as per my New Year's Resolutions), I'd be happy to sign up for such a thing, if it's in place by then.

I technically have the start of it on my own blog. Its basically an Image Link that links back to a page like this one, that shows who is part of the group, and how to sign up.

Just something simple like this:

I'll probably edit the link to come here for now :) Might as well start somewhere ^_^

I'll also start the list in the OP.

I'm sure we could have a blog/2S link exchangey thing. On 2S we could host outbound links to all of the blogs whilst the blogs hold links the other way around. Or a link rotator could be used to show links to a random member of the 2S Blog group on all of the sites (so blogs may show other users blogs/2S, and 2S would be showing blogs).

I think I have a few blogs already on my reading list. I have:

The Reclusian (http://the-reclusiam.blogspot.co.uk/) by Thantos
Tempest's 40k Blog (http://tempests40kbunker.blogspot.co.uk/) by Tempest
The Power of Waaagh (http://waaaghpower.wordpress.com/) by WaaaghPower

I'm sure we could have a blog/2S link exchangey thing. On 2S we could host outbound links to all of the blogs whilst the blogs hold links the other way around. Or a link rotator could be used to show links to a random member of the 2S Blog group on all of the sites (so blogs may show other users blogs/2S, and 2S would be showing blogs).
Sounds cool, even if a little over complicated :P I think a link to a Group Directory would potentially be best.

Don't get me started on Google Analytics -_- I aparently get around 50hits per day, most of which goes to a single post. Since I posted it on October 23rd, this post (http://daemonfiregames.blogspot.com/2013/10/props-of-war-inscribed-scimitar-part-1.html) has had 873+views. whereas a Narrative Battle Report (http://daemonfiregames.blogspot.com/2013/11/for-crate-of-tea-kill-team-bat-rep.html), Hobby update (http://daemonfiregames.blogspot.com/2013/12/some-finished-exo-lords.html), and a now put down Monthly Bits Store Report/Review (http://daemonfiregames.blogspot.com/2013/11/range-review-november-2013.html) have less than 30 hits altogether....

If you want the image file I use Thantos, its here (http://sta.sh/0yn4an68lju) now.
