As I’ve mentioned before, I’m getting ready to create a new website for The Deadly Bloggers. We’ll be moving to WordPress soon. However there is one big difference between what we have now and what I’d like to have in the future.
The “directory” is actually (on this website) a LinkList. Whenever I find a new blogger to add, I go into the list, edit and add new URL.
What I want for the new site is to have individual bloggers list their blogs by completing a form. Each blogger would have their own listing (in an individual post). And I’d like to feature more information than simply the link, with a thumbnail of their latest post.
The type of information I’m thinking about including –
- Name of Blog
- URL of Blog
- Blog logo (if relevant)
- Category: Education, Personal, Literature, Art, Professional, Sport, Fashion, Health, Technology, Politics, Adult, Craft, Entertainment, Organisation, Business … (more)
- Summary of blog (146 characters perhaps)
- Social Media links – G+, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc
- Blogging platform: Blogger, WordPress, TypePad, Tumblr, Posterous, other
- Contact name
