There has been some good feedback from the other bloggers about the "teaser" copy reaching nusance levels, so I thought I'd create this topic where we can discuss how to best direct traffic to new posts on our Adopt-a-Seahawk! (AAS) pages without cluttering up the front page.
Here's what I recommend:
1. a short catchy title
2. hot link that title to your sub-page using the Link field
3. no more than 4-5 lines of copy with your "teaser" post (i.e. lenghth of paragraph above)
4. if you include a picture, it should be no more than 1.5 inches square (about the size of the graphic above)
5. feel free to also hot link the picture, and/or include a text link too.
I think if we all adhere to a set of simple guidelines, the site won't start looking like a NASCAR Taurus, and we'll be able to easily alert our fellow bloggers when there's new content on the AAS pages.
Now, please use the Comments section of this post to either agree, disagree, or add suggestions for better/different guildelines. As a true community site, everyone's input is valid, and we'll end up with a better collective product if everyone weighs in.
What do you think?
