Self-improvement is masturbation?

So I know y’all hate metablogging, but here it is anyway.  Wesleying is going through a transitional phase (contributors, feel free to lambaste me if you feel that’s a misnomer) and it seems to me that one of the major features of the blog is that it includes the community.  So here it is, your chance to give back.  

If you like the blog, you probably want to see it get better.  If you hate the blog, you probably want to see it get better.  So step up guys – we want to here what’s good and what’s not, what you hate and what you love.  I know you’ve seen these posts before, but this time we’re serious.  There is a definite possibility we might actually listen – but only if you can have the audacity to hope for a change where we all change our hopes to change.  Or something.  Think of it as Blogging 2.0.  Does that make any sense?  No it does not.  But think of it as that anyway.

    I agree with Sheek – why not? As for being professional, the thing I think Wesleyan is most lacking is sections. I guess that is the nature of a blog, but labels seem to me a poor way of organizing things, and it would be nice if there were a simple way to search just for info on events, or just campus news, or just random shit.

    yo we could afford $10 a year if we just asked students for their change or something. would bandwidth still be an issue? if we can get a proper domain name for this cheap, why not do it?

    Checking at GoDaddy.com I see that Wesleying.org ($8.99/yr), Wesleying.info ($2.99), and Wesleying.us ($9.99) are still available. You can use any of those domains and have all incoming forwarded to blogger at no additional cost.

    I think if the extent of our petition to the SBC is “we post stuff, and a lot of it is about Wesleyan, do you want to give us money?” then we would have no obligations. Idunno. At the same time, I don’t have a problem with .blogspot.com, and who is it that we’d like to look professional for?

    Oh no oh no oh no – please don’t do the thumbs up/down thing. I don’t like the idea of further nourishing egos or hurting anyone. There’s already enough of that through nasty comments and bloggers wavin around their e-penises. and it’s annoying.

    Nobody wanted to pay for the .net address, so we got rid of it. It’s really not that hard to type in the blogger address. I also really like the thumbs up/down thing, though I don’t know if that’s available on blogger

    Justin bashing and condoning aside, this stuff is really useful. I think 5:09 is an excellent point, and 5:33, we’ve discussed that – that is, how professional Wesleying ought to become, and whether accepting SBC money would make us “beholden.” Keep it coming!

    get an actual .com address, like wesleying.com, lose the blogger. it would be classier, could you ask for donations/get activities funding? or would that leave you too beholden to the man

    it would be cool if you had a little thumbs up/thumbs down thing in the corner of each post, so viewers could vote whether or not it was a good/useful post. it might add some democracy to the site and would directly give helpful feedback to the site. I’ve seen other blogs with it, but not sure if Blogger provides it.
