: Re: Start Article of the Week today?
(2009-01-06 17:14) [#5570]
I seem to have painted myself into a corner as a cynic, which I don't want to be, but can't prevent it.
I like the "Article of the Week" idea, I just doubt that it is sustainable over a 3 year period. That's 150 articles to be proud of.
Personally I would have trouble creating 6 original pages over 3 years. So I estimate my personal writing productivity as low in this context. Mining the back catalogue by highlighting previously created pages is going to be a major source of material. This will also give us a chance to dust them off and update them just before putting them in the "Article of the Week".
The cautious side of me is prompted by the number of Go periodicals that have stuttered in their periodicity, indicating the challenge of attracting contributions. Nordisk GoBlad, Suji magazine, The Magic of Go web site, Korean times column. Thinking about the AGA & BGA journals, I wonder if they too have an uphill task to find articles.
My psychology is to under-promise and over-deliver. An approach for Eeyores. To push ahead, setting out a visionary tent that will bring in the crowds, is a positive, confident way forward. An approach for Tiggers.
So, no objection, go for it. It just takes quite a lot of Eeyores to add up to one Tigger.
