The platform this blog is on is Blogspot. It is an extremely easy format to use but, as many of you know, it has some real drawbacks. Therefore we are going to overhaul the blog. Here's some things I have thought we need:
- less touchy spam filter
- a "most read" counter
- a "lightbox" link so you'd have a window that hovers over the page you are on so you can e-mail us (without opening a new window or leaving the site)
- a documents area
A big question is...the name. Beth Bakeman started the blog when school closures were occurring so hence the "save." And even though in some ways I feel we are trying to "save" Seattle Schools, we don't want it to sound like a crisis mode. So, what might be a good name?
One caveat is that this discussion is NOT about the writing. I say this upfront because I don't want to digress off into a discussion of what we write and how we write it. Charlie and I have our styles and they aren't going to change.
Any suggestions you have about the look and use of the blog would be appreciated.
