Building up members

How do we get members to interact more on the blogs and post. Is this a
good method?

IV has grown rapidly and they utilize web 2.0 technologies. We need to
do the same.

Wordpress does not have this functionality we are using here, as far as
I can find.

Bob,
 
Agreed.  WORDPRESS is a bit behind the curve- but then I didn't know
where I was going when I started this.  Your method of leading people to blogs via email
may be a breakthrough.
 
Let's focus on  RSS functionality and your email posting for a start

I clicked on the little feeder icon, and it brought up Bloglines as the
first RSS feed (which I use) so I added it, and now we shall see if things
get fed ok...

RE: Building up members

The RSS should be just raw RSS 2.0. I'll assume that's this feed popped up because you are using bloglines as your news aggregator.
What I'm thinking of adding is the ability to pull in selected feeds of authors for reposting automatically and comments. This is a TBD and it depends on how authors on other sites have their RSS feeds set plus I need permission to in essence repost their writing via RSS on this site.

A couple of things, reposting, which is to repost your story on this site is amazingly easy. It should be a simply copy and paste of your original blog post. into the text box, no reformatting. The copy and paste commands should bring along your underlying XHTML tags.

Then, if you notice in the first right column, all of these blog articles have a little "b" by them, which means you can blog on that blog article by simply clicking.

To create a blog post you must register. If you're on this list, use the exact email if you register.

I have a poll on the front page asking for site feedback.

FYI,

www.hireamericansfirst.org allows members to enter articles into the rss feed from that site. click the "RSS" in upper right for info.

Building up members







When responding be sure to:



1.  Not change the subject line so you are commenting on someone else's
post and not starting a new topic



2.  Remove the message you are responding to in your new reply.   If
you do not do this then the entire content, including the email address
of the sender

     is posted onto the forum and you will duplicate the very comment
that you are replying to.  Go to: 
http://www.economicpopulist.org/?q=node/39

    to see what I mean.  I edited out one post already.    I don't
think I can completely predit (which I'm doing) the mail before
automatically reposting

    to catch all of this.  The list itself must kind of pay attention
that they are posting automatically to a blog.



Kim,



   Beyond trying to work out the bugs so this looks nice, automatically
enables discussion threads to be posted to a public forum and
automatically

   puts them into a searchable database, I'll look around to see which
else I can find to more integrate other websites so we can generate
more members

   and traffic to each other's main work and efforts.   



   Another thing to consider is using openID.
