    I was considering implementing the ability for each user of PF to have their own blog. Is this something that anyone would be interested in using? There would be a block on the homepage that would scroll the X most recent entries of all the bloggers and you would be able to read eachothers, search for specific users blogs etc.

    Let me know your thoughts, if anyone thinks they would use it, or if it's good/bad idea.

    A weblog, which is usually shortened to blog, is a type of website where entries are made (such as in a journal or diary), displayed in a reverse chronological order. Blogs often provide commentary or news on a particular subject, such as food, politics, or local news; some function as more personal online diaries. A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. Most blogs are primarily textual although many focus on photographs, videos or audio. The word blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.

    I'd do it. I'd probably use it daily since I have too keep tabs on the Packers training camp every day just about. I like the idea.

    although, you would get people that would say "im not posting on this subject, cuz i posted it on my pf.com blog HERE!(Link)" and that would get old.

    I think this is a great point. Blogs attached to this site run the risk of moving the discussion away from the forums where it should be, and onto each persons individual page.

    But seeing as you've already set them up, let me offer a suggestion. If possible, how about not allowing comments on each individual blog. That moves the discussion about a particular topic back to the forum for everyone to participate in. In addition, you could set up a new forum entitled "Packer Blogs" or what not. Then if someone reads so and so's blog and wants to discuss it, they can start a thread entitled "Discussion of Person X's recent blog"

    That way we could organize all the discussion about a certain blog under one forum so the users that don't or haven't read the blogs don't have to sift through all the threads on the main forum.

    What do you think?

    Good suggestion Matt, I will do something like this...

    Wait and see if anyone ever even uses the blogs, if discussion becomes rampant in them, I will disable the ability to comment and make a note that if people wish to discuss them to take it to the forums.

    I made one, it was deleted though :( I am so discouraged by that I can't merit the strength to create another. The world is ending, walls are closing!!
