    CF User Blogs - Feedback Needed

    I wanted to get some feedback on the User Blogs that we have on CF. I know they haven't really ever been hyped or pushed but if people are intersted, I have some upgrades I can do to help integrate them into the site a lot more. I don't want to go to the effort if people don't really care though.

    Let me know what you think of the Blogs and if it's something you'd use if it was integrated a little more and had more features.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    I wouldn't use the features.

    Use your time to work on the idea I PM'd you about.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Yeah...blogs are just ok.

    Enhancing CF PMs would be better IMO. :)

    That is why I did not start. Plus I have nothing important to say.

    I hate blogs and nearly everything about them unless it's written by somebody important. I know of no such people. To me it's narcisistic(sp).

    Dear blog,

    Today I woke up kinda late and rushed around trying to get to work, my wife yelled at me. I got to work late and my boss yelled at me. Then I screwed up my project and his boss yelled at me. I went to the gym and my trainer yelled at me. Once I got back to work my boss yelled at me again. Then I got home and my wife and kids yelled at me some more. Then I gave them all benedryl at dinner, they are sleeping now. Thank you for being my only friend mr Blog. I love you.

    --Me.
