The good news
DaniWeb blogs are back in the Google News index, which means increased exposure for both DaniWeb and our team of blog posters (er, that's you folks.)
The bad news
We won't be there for long unless the qulaity of the blogs themselves changes.
Can Dani and I remind everyone that DaniWeb blogs are perhaps a little different to some other blogging systems out there.
If you want an outlet to talk about politics, the food you like, how you are feeling today yada yada yada, then go get posting on Blogger - DaniWeb blogs are not for you.
So who are DaniWeb blogs for?
Anyone who wants to talk about technology, in particular technology in the news and put their own spin, add their own opinion, to the story. Any kind of IT that is covered within the forums is also fair game in the blogs.
What we are really looking for here is quality content, thought provoking, well written content.
Not questions, not pleas for help, and not a short cut and paste of a new story from another feed either.
Now that we have, finally, got back into the Google News index with all the exposure that brings to DaniWeb, let's try and stay there. Poor quality, off-topic blogging is not the way forward: and we will be taking a firmer stance in the blogs as a result.
Er, sorry, didn't men that to come over quite as heavy handed as it has. But the blogs are important to DaniWeb, and important to me as well. I want to see both continue to grow, and this is a great opportunity to do just that. Let's make the most of it...
