Okay, so I’ve decided to move away from WordPress.com. I mentioned some of the difficulties that it was causing for a blog like this, so I’m going to give the roundup its own website.
I also see this as a bit of an opportunity to change Scottish Blogging Roundup’s name, as I’ve got the impression that the name hasn’t really caught on. It is pretty clunky, and I usually refer to it just as the ’roundup’ or ‘SBR’, while others call it still other things. ‘Scottish Blogging Roundup’ is just too many syllables and letters for us lazy interwebs folk.
So, are there any suggestions as to a new name? ‘Scotblogs’ has been suggested, but I’m not sure about that. It is a little bit close to the already existing (and excellent) Scottish Blogs.
Also, any ideas for new features? I’m thinking of doing roundups dedicated to certain kinds of blogs. For instance, some time before the election I will take a look at politicians’ blogs. Any ideas for other features? I think as the election nears we might go for having more than one roundup per week, as the amount of blogging will obviously increase and the news will be changing all the time. Please do suggest away in the comments!
Don’t forget also that the roundup benefits from your suggestions. If you send us a suggestion to be included in the roundup — even if it is your own — it will almost certainly be included. Also, suggestions for potential guest editors (even if it is yourself) are welcome.
