And it’s our 3rd anniversary! (see last post for the stats on how many authors, views of posts etc).
Thank you very much to all of you who responded to my questions about whether we keep going and evolve or stop. I’m still not totally sure what changes we’re making but I’ve started with just retweeting people’s tweets about their newest blog posts rather than writing a post for each.
One change I need you to make is to mention @weeklyblogclub in your tweets about posts if you want your post to be included. When we started, I think the hashtag search results were in date order but, unfortunately, Twitter has gone down the Facebook route and seems to order them in ‘popularity’ order which means that latest tweets can get mixed in amongst tweets from months ago.
I will redesign the logo – unless someone else would like to…? I am looking at using a different WordPress template too. If any of you would like to suggest a [free] template and colours, please do!
I tried to set up a Weekly Blog Club MailChimp account – and then realised why I hadn’t previously as, at the second stage of set up, it insists on a full postal address. Since I don’t want to broadcast my home address and lack a work address, I can’t do this. It seems to have accepted a fabricated address for now – but do any of you have a work address that you would be prepared to let us use for our MailChimp account if needed?
Thank you very much for comments and favourable comments on the previous post What shall we do with Weekly Blog Club? – and thank you to all who have contributed and taken turns in looking after Weekly Blog Club up till now.
Let’s try new things! Let us know if you prefer something, or if you want to take a turn at looking after Weekly Blog Club.
Happy New Year!
PS I’ve set up a MailChimp account for Weekly Blog Club for those who miss the tweets about the summary posts and if we get subscribers, we’ll send out a brief weekly (or less) newsletter – possibly with just a sentence and a link to the relevant post on this blog. Subscribe via this link (and I apologise for the Recaptcha but the blog does attract spam).
