Siderea's Recipe for Blogging
It's seems like I look for this post of siderea's about once a year, and I always wish more people would link to it.  So here it is, [soc/anthro] The Recipe, Or What you don't know about LJ/DW:

There's a recipe. It's a recipe for maximally useful-for-engendering-virtual-community-LJ/DW-style. I'm not sure I have it exactly down yet -- this is the alpha version -- but I'm pretty sure that, contrary to a lot of LJ/DW users think, it goes something like this:

Recommended Minimum Weekly Posts by Type:
0.5 diary entry
3 pointers
0.5 bleg
0.25 op ed

Here's what the post said:

"Bleg" -- a question put to your readership, such as "what computer should I buy?" or "where should I go when I visit Ulan Blaator?" or "what did you think of the ending of the Sopranos?"

I'm not even sure if this is a word, aside from this post. But now I think about blegging all the time.

Ah, I haven't run across that site in a while(?) yet(?)!

It looks like a bit of a replacement for worldchanging.org.
