After a post/comment from Kåre Enga UdonThani 🇹🇭 , I'm curious how members feel about blogging on WdC.

Blogging can be a fun way to share just about anything with the world. In this case, the rest of WdC.

Members of the site who have been around for a bit may remember "Blogville." This was an active community of bloggers who shared just as much of their writing craft as they did of their personal lives. We found support in our network of writers and friends. Blogville is not what it used to be and I treasure those memories!

The site has changed quite a bit in the years since Blogville has become more of a ghost town than a metropolis and so has blogging, both on here and on the web in general.

Here is my question...

Do you blog on WdC? Do you want to receive comments on your blog? Do you comment on others' blogs?
      YES, I blog. YES, I want comments. YES, I comment on other blogs.
      YES, I blog. YES, I want comments. NO, I don't comment on other blogs.
      YES, I blog. NO, I don't want comments. YES, I comment on other blogs.
      YES, I blog. NO, I don't want comments. NO, I don't comment on other blog.
      NO, I don't blog. YES, I comment on other blogs.
      I blog, but my blog is private...
      What is a blog?
      I blog, but I don't really worry about whether or not I'll get comments.
Lilli ☕️ 🧿 Yes, a group may be helpful for those who blog and want that sense of community. The poll was mostly to see who felt that way. Perhaps there were members out there who desired comments, felt they weren't getting them and didn't know how. Or, perhaps most people just didn't care? Just curious, is all. *Smile*
ruwth The feature to choose what comments show publicly on your blog might be helpful, especially if you are writing about a controversial or personally sensitive topic. I'm not sure it would be widely used but it could be something for the suggestion box?

stolenthrones I like that you blog to give your readers something to think about even if they don't have anything particularly profound to comment about it at the time. Interesting perspective and I appreciate the insight!

         I posted that last November...

The StoryMaster has a long to do list and, as you said, there is not a big demand for this feature. I might be the only one who wants it. *RollEyes*

How many reviews can you do?

There are millions (okay, maybe not millions) of reviews submitted every day on WdC. Many of them are very helpful, pointing out areas of our writing where we can improve not only that piece but apply that knowledge as we write new things.

However, many reviews are relatively short. Some are only a few sentences long, even if they offer valuable information. There are reviews that go into much more detail and are extremely long, but these are rare.

My question is this... do you WANT in-depth, constructive reviews of your writing?

By constructive, I mean that the review points out flaws but also exceptional qualities, and may also offer suggestions for improvement.

      No, I don't want any reviews at all.
      No, I want reviews that are short and to the point.
      Meh, I want reviews that touch on a few things but don't go into much detail.
      Yes, I want reviews that cover elements of style, storytelling, structure, etc.
      Yes, I want reviews that provide grammar and line edits.
      Yes, I want reviews that cover EVERYTHING.
      Other. (Please comment, review, or email me!)
I guess my answer wasn't quite a clear as I intended, sorry about that. Let me try again. Can there be too much? Can there be too little? Sure, but even a short review can be revealing and helpful, so length isn't the issue as much as what someone does with it. One really insightful comment is better than a page full of fluff. Long, super deep, and thoughtful reviews are great, but not everyone can do those.

Better? *Bigsmile*
♊️GeminiGem💎 Ah, gotcha. Thank you for the insight. I really appreciate the feedback. There is a method to my madness here. I promise! *Laugh*
