More visibility for other local bloggers

blogosphere poster We’re going to experiment with aggregating some posts from some local bloggers right into our Locally Grown blog. 

We’ve been aggregating (into our right sidebar) the most recent headlines from a select group of nine local bloggers for many months.  This is an experiment to ratchet that up a bit by aggregating the entire post, giving it the same visibility as our posts, with their names attached.

For now, we’ll leave the comments option on these posts turned off. If you’d like to comment, follow the link to their blog. The headline/title of the post is a permalink for their post, so just click it and attach a comment there.

The dates of the posts won’t match up exactly with the originals, and there may be some glitches with images. We’ll assign the posts to a category called “aggregated posts.”

And let us know what you think of the experiment by attaching comments here.

    I like the idea, Griff! It seems like a generous but still mutually beneficial thing for Locally Grown to do: greater variety for your site, greater visibility for local bloggers.

    Thx, Bill. There are glitches with the plugin but we’re trying to get the developer to fix ’em.
