Blogging is not just a good thing, it is an excellent way for us to actually expand our traffic and Make the Internet a better place.
Now, we are currently trying to get a WebApps blog created for us (on BlogOverflow), and we want you to be part of it. Unlike previous discussions, we are re-defining how the blog will function for our community.
As clearly defined at the top, we are aiming to reach these goals with this new blog:
- Expand our traffic
- Make the Internet a better place
This blog will serve as a supporting role for our main site and is not intended to drain the audience of this site. Our current social media page(s) will also be supporting this new blog.
I am proposing to have the following types of topics:
- Popular (and answered) questions on the site
- Reviews of new applications
- News of popular web applications
We are not TechCrunch or any other technology news site. We are mainly trying to keep our scope to mainly based on the questions on this site.
Based on comments and being a blogger myself, I would suggest that we have:
- A minimum of two posts per month
- A maximum of two posts a week (to avoid spamming our readers too much information)
Even the StackExchange blog isn't updated that frequently. There will be no fixed date on the publication day, but the general workflow will be:
Have idea for post/Write post → Undergo review for accuracy, grammar and the like → Publish on suitable day (at least three days apart)
Everyone! Everyone on the site
must should contribute at least once in a while. :D
We can have an editorial team to review and serve as "backup bloggers". This would most likely consist of rather active members of the community.
On board so far

The underlying software is Wordpress and contains some features that are suitable for collaboration of posts. If you want to write a post, just actually begin writing on your dashboard, but do not publish it immediately. Someone from the editorial team will review, make amendments and publish on a more suitable date.
