So I guess that's a no then.
Fair enough, the problem is that I have to look in their profiles to see if they have a blog, then add it to my favourites if I like it.
If it was linked to ASF, I'd see something like;
Under a blogs tab.
Just an added resource.
Well actually its a yes...Originally Posted by ducati916
I think the best place for a link to someones blog is in their signature, which is where you have 'Multa renascentur quae iam cecidere, cadentque Quae nunc sunt in honore'.
Ok, my mistake.
I also respectfully request that those members who choose to link to their blog from their signature include a return link to ASF somewhere on their blog.
It would definitely be appreciated.
Duc, your link wasn't live so I fixed it. It is now clickable.
I'll add ASF...........
Thanks. Appreciated.Originally Posted by ducati916
Hey Duc, thats your blog at the top!Originally Posted by ducati916
This could be a good idea. Topics of interest that are covered in detail on users' blogs will likely stimulate discussion topics back in the forum. The linking back to ASF from all blogs makes sense. It is a hub for the exchange our of thoughts and ideas.
Sure you could have Options blogs [enzo] Fundamental blogs, Gann blogs, Mechnaical or Systems blogs etc.
The method currently used is ok, but you have to find a poster that you like and then find if they have a blog.
If the blogs were linked under a tab at the menu bar, you would have something like;
Or simply just a straight list of blogs by author, without topic
Anyway, just an idea.
I think JB kinda, sorta, is hinting that bloggs are in competition with ASF . While an excellent vehicle in their own right, bloggs have limited means for continued discussion, as opposed to here on ASF. I read your latest blog & agree and all, so why not have the same post here for wider discussion?. It's only a copy and paste.

Sure, I appreciate that fact, but I like many don't have time, nor the interest to follow every thread on ASF..........but, if I could have a quick sqizz at members blogs that are all listed under an index of some description, there may well be a blog that is of great interest, from an author, on a thread that I don't happen to read for whatever reason.
Blogs can be quite verbose. I would think that cutting and pasting entire blogs into threads on ASF could be a conversation killer.
Personally I think there is no need for a blogs section. Surely if you spend a bit of time on ASF you will come across some blogs in peoples' signatures.
Discussion only! Posts may be factually incorrect due to ignorance, taken out of context, misinterpreted, or just opinionated discussion.
The main reason I started a blog was because some sites don't accept image uploads - I needed to store the images somewhere. Then I found that it was useful record for my own purposes, although I don't post full blown systems on my blog, just ideas.
I don't see the need for a blogs section on ASF. If someone wants more info on a post or insight on a poster then they can check the posters blog.
I started a blog. Don't know why, I thought I was missing out on something. I'm sure one day, when they run out of space on the Internet, I will volunteer my blog to be the first thing to be removed!
Your link didn't work...all fixed nowOriginally Posted by Fleeta
1. How do you find out who has a blog?
2. Can you put your blog address in your signature?
If you are referring to the ASF blogs, the answers are as follows:
1. When you enter the ASF blogs section at the top left you will see a box called 'Blog Statistics'. Click on the number next to 'Total Blogs', this will take you to the list of ASF blogs. (See attachment 1)
2. You can, but there's no need. For those with an ASF blog, there is a link at the top right of every one of your posts that says 'Blog Entries' that takes people straight to your blog. (See attachment 2) Although if you have a private blog, people will not be able to access it.
Hope that answers your questions.
