Allow us to pick your brains for a moment.
We (the news team) have been tossing around the idea of blogs for months now. After humming and hawing over it we (well, some of us more than others) decided the readers should at least get to weigh in on the matter.
For us, the community aspect of Tom’s is extremely important, particularly away from the forums. We love to hear your thoughts on the day to day events in the tech world and recently we’ve been trying to bring you guys closer to the news.
You may have noticed our efforts as of late: Tuan’s Question of the Day posts, which always get a massive response, Marcus’ active participation in the discussions and Jane’s “every article has to end with a question” style are just a few of our endeavors. Depending on the writer and the topic, our posts can be fairly opinionated, mostly because we like to encourage good vibes and friendly debates. What we want to know is if you’d like to see us take this further.
We were thinking something along the lines of weekly columns for each editor, published on different days (it’s early, so details are more vague than the predictions of a fraudulent clairvoyant). However, this isn’t something we want to pursue unless there’s a genuine interest. We’ll be lurking in the comments section to answer your questions over the coming days but it’s pretty straight forward. We want to hear what you think: Blogs, yay or nay?
Just to be clear, if you do want blogs, it'll be an addition to our news--nothing will be taken away.
Let us know and it shall be done (or not, obviously).
