Sunday Salon: Thoughts?
Maxine of Petrona posted some thoughtful comments the other day about the Salon--where it's going, whether it works. Her post has attracted a large number of comments already. Jacob Russell posted his own thoughts over at his Barking Dog blog. They raise interesting questions, and I'm hoping their posts continue to inspire discussion about the Salon. As a small response I just added an addendum to my introduction to the Salon over at the main site. I wrote:
Addendum, May 2008: 1. The Salon's membership has grown so large that it's no longer possible for any one Salonist to read all of the Salon posts every week, much less comment on them meaningfully. Salonists should not feel any pressure to do so. Please feel free to skim around, to read what appeals, to visit the blogs that are of interest and forgo the rest. 2. Salonists should feel free also not to post some weeks if they haven't the time to read.
And I'm going to add a link to this post also so that people will be able to comment here.
In short, I invite further discussion about the Salon: whether it's working, and more specifically, whether there are any concrete changes that could be made to make it work better. So if you have any thoughts, please feel free to discuss them in the comments to this post.
