Reader Participation?

Phae and I are considering opening this blog up to posting of articles by registered readers who’ve had three or more comments approved in the past. Is this a good, bad, or weird idea? We do have a number of people who have posted very good comments in the past and this change would make the blog much more interactive. Let us know what you think!

    I would love to participate. I think it would be a great idea to open things up. I am trying that on my own blog, and I love it when other people put up an article. It spices things up a lot.

    Interactive articles could really liven and open up people and topics. Sounds like a great idea.

    Is the norm, expectation and practice that those participating in interactive posting will be among the blog author(s)’ peers (“names” in the Pagan community, in your case) and close friends?

    Are you asking if it’s weird because you’re interested in explorations, fun, interaction and in people trying their personal best … and that you two are not necessarily beholden to (often left un-) said norm?

    That’s two votes in favor so far!

    Norms? We don’t need no stinking … No the norm will be civilized discourse, discussion, and debate from/with whoever posts it. RR trolls will be censored, but libertarian comments will be welcome.

    I’m asking “wierd” because I hate to give just two options for answers. And norms? We don’t…

    Understood. 🙂

    Are there going to be big flags to denote what you write and what other folks write? It’s a simple matter that I check in here to get your thoughts and not those of others, so I’d appreciate flags of some sort to indicate what’s yours and what isn’t.

    All of my posts have my name in blue below the title. All of my comments are in italics, like this one.
