As a new blogger on DIY.StackExchange.COM, it has become apparent that the blog reader base isn't as prevalent as on maybe some of the other sites.
It would be very beneficial to some of the smaller sites (and maybe the bigger sites) to add a "This week in the blogosphere..." section to the weekly newsletter. Proposals include:
- List of blog posts with their titles hyperlinked
- Same as above but an excerpt is taken from the blog post.. one or two lines.
I think this would help draw attention to the sites and build a stronger user base.
