An Experiment: An Open Blog

I am going to try something. It is based upon The Economist's decision to publish all of their letters to the editor in a blog.

I have created a blog called "Your Views." Anyone can post there.

To post at Your Views, just send an email with the title of the post as the subject to: yourview1.post@blogger.com. That's all there is to it.

You can send HTML. For more details, see: How is HTML handled in Mail-to-Blogger? [I'll put something more permanent in the sidebar, instructions, links, etc. and perhaps do more with the site design if this catches on, if not...].

Don't forget to sign the email if you want people to know who you are. That's the only identifying information that appears - the emails post automatically - all I see is what you see.

It will be moderated, but only as absolutely necessary and only as I can - I don't have time to do it properly. I'd like to to evolve on its own as much as possible anyway, though keep in mind that economics is an overarching theme. But as I said, it's open. Comments are also open for all posts at the site.

We'll see how this goes.

[Update: There are two three four five entries so far from people willing to give this a try - they'd be pleased to hear your comments. Anyone else have something to say? Just send an email with your thoughts... One more note: If there are problems with the formatting after the post arrives, I'll try to fix it.]
