So I’ve just published the poll for this week’s #SixWordStoryChallenge here – don’t forget to vote! But there’s one thing I haven’t done…
Eagle-eyed followers of the six word story challenge might notice that I haven’t got round to including a list of links to everyone’s blogs as part of the poll post. Mea culpa. I’m sorry, folks. It’s a lovely social thing to do, but it is kind of… well… time consuming to set up all those links. I’m starting to think the most important thing is to get the poll out on time, at a consistent time, so that people know when to look out for it and vote. And that would be preferable than a delayed post with a list of blog links on it.
So this week I’m going to mix things up a bit. Rather than adding the roll of honour to the poll post, I’m offering instead to reblog a post from everyone who has contributed a story this week. I don’t think this will take much longer, as actually the reblog button is a lot easier than copying and pasting URL’s, and I can spread it out over a few days, rather than having a frantic Thursday evening trying to get them all into that post.
So let’s see if that works. And tell me what you think. Do you notice a spike in the number of visitors to your site after Wonderwall/ I share a link on the poll post? Do you think the roll of honour is something we should try and continue? Or would you prefer a reblog, putting your blog in front of a potentially wider audience? Or doesn’t it matter either way? Let me know! (and if you haven’t already, go and vote!)
