|The quality police|
Tuesday, 16 March 2010 15:42
In the quest for hits we are all guilty of focussing on quantity rather than quality, of churning out as many blog posts as we can without looking at the bigger picture, which is simply: if people come to your blog and find crap, they won't come back.
We want myDL to become known as a site for finding informative opinion and well-written pieces. When news breaks, we want people to want to come find out more about it here, from you. That is only going to happen if we all up the quality of our postings. It's like a team sport: if people come to the site and read one bad posting, it is unlikely they will assume everyone else's work is of a better quality.
From now on all posts that have not been proof-read, contain spelling or glaring grammatical errors or are in any other way confusing (or near impossible) to read, will be moved out of whatever category they're in and into the Lifestyle category. We would love to fix these things for you but in all honesty we do not have the time or capacity. Welcome to the digital age - the age of being your own sub-editor.
