If you could improve Blogger in any one area, what would it be? I have a few ideas on that subject and it appears that Blogger does also.
The Blogger Wish List page asks us to vote on a feature suggestion. How they came up with the six suggestions on this list, I do not know. But I have seen some of them harped about in zillions of comments spread across many posts.
Of the six suggestions, I really have a passion for two of them. I also have suggestions for what is obviously absent. Could it be that by the omission of certain discussions might suggest that they are not entertaining them? That I do not know either.
No. 1 - I want to show excerpts of my posts, with links to the full text.
This is, and should be, top priority for Blogger.
True excerpts will be "what you see, is all you get". Excerpts will cut down on duplicate content -- and thereby reducing the amount of Supplemental Pages in the Google index. This is a win-win for both Blogger and Google Search.
No. 2 - I want to be able to upload other files to my blog besides images.
The other four items on the list did not interest me much. The item for Recommending a Blog of Note for instance, who actually cares? I do not frequent the pages that they are "noted" on.
Or suggest a new feature
This was a no-brainer. I had two.
- Provide a setting to Enable/Disable the Nofollow attribute in Comments.
- Provide for "in-post" comment forms
Vote now and get noticed
Vote now. It is easy to do and will only take you a couple of seconds.
Spread the word about the Wish List and let's see if we can get them to notice. It is worth a shot. I will be stickying this post to my sidebar in plain view in the hope that others will notice.
If you create a new post with your vote(s)and/or suggestions and link to this post, I will notice it. I will link back to your voting post by listing it here. Alternatively, you could drop me a comment below and let me know how you voted.
And yes, I voted for more than one suggestion too! =)
I hope nobody sees that =) above and suggests smilies. Yuck!
