Thanks to an email from Matt (no url supplied) I’m playing around with a new little widget on my sidebar here at ProBlogger called Skribit.
The idea is that it’s a tool for gathering and prioritizing the topics that readers (ie YOU) want a blogger (ie ME) to write about on a blog.
You’ll see over on the sidebar that there’s already some topics. One suggestion is to write about ‘Why are you using Skribit’ which was asked by the team at Skribit by default. I’m now answering that question and can then link it to this post.
There are a couple of other questions already added by my Twitter Followers.
The idea now is that YOU the readers can add your topics/questions and then vote up the ones that others have added to help me work out which are the main ones that you want addressed.
While I’ve been testing it all of 5 minutes I love the concept behind this tool as it gives bloggers great feedback on what’s on the mind of their readers and the readers control to prioritize their needs.
I’d love to see readers start to add their questions so we can test it out!
update: seems that when you link an answer as being answered it disappears from the list. Not sure where the links appear.
