Blog fiasco still the same
July 20, 2012 in re-blogs
For those of you that have not been following Met Uysh’s ongoing battle with the sport24 blog editor and IT dept on our behalf, let me explain how I feel about this whole fiasco. I have put my last reply to MU in a post because it was becoming too long for a comment.
I’ve got tired of doing these guys jobs for them and I’m sad to say that my days of struggling here are numbered. There are only a few people that still post here, even though there is supposed to be spin off from sport24, there are few ”outside” comments, the blog eds don’t care and the IT guys are apathetic. I will leave my blog here and visit it fairly often, but I honestly see no point in posting here until, or rather IF, this platform gets its act together. Sitting and thinking through and writing a post takes time and effort and this platform is not worth the effort in its current format.
On LD we had readership from other LD communities but now that it has fragmented into separate communities with no central page it’s a waste of my time. To simply post the same post here as on my wordpress blog is extra effort that has no benefit. If people want to read what I write I think they will make the effort to link or follow my WP site and I will link to them. It might be mostly the same guys but there will be less aggravation.
I have started expanding my blogroll and if “members” advertise their blogs through facebook, twitter and friends, the group will expand by itself. There are about 25 people (Blogs) on the blogroll and if I can encourage even half of those to post and comment regularly there will be more action than this forum.
Any guys that would like to connect with a group of like minded sports rugby fans please feel free to visit my blog http://powachairblog.wordpress.com/ and give me a link address to add to the blogroll. It does not have to be a wordpress blog, the blog can be on blogspot or Tumblr or even if there are chaps that prefer to stay on sport24 for whatever reason and would like to link into the group let me know and I will add you to the blogroll too. The only drawback that I can see is that “outsiders” would have to sign in once on your 24 blog to comment but that is a requirement on most blog platforms.
Anybody that struggles to do the set up on wordpress can contact me firstname.lastname@example.org and I will help you or do it for you at no charge.
