readers will notice something new and different across all our sites
Currently, some of the posts you see on the local Streetsblog sites —
New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Capitol Hill — actually originated
on a different Streetsblog site and are being syndicated.
Starting today, you’ll see a little icon, like the one pictured at
right, to let you know where the post was first published.
Why is this important to you as a reader? Well, when you click on the
post now, you will be taken to the originating site. Same goes for
clicking to view or contribute to comments.
The best part of this is that all comments will now be collected in
one place. If you’re reading the New York site and want to comment on
one of Elana Schor’s Streetsblog Capitol Hill pieces about federal
policy, for instance, you’ll be doing so in the same place as readers of
the LA and SF blogs.
In addition, all of the Streetsblog Network posts, which I write
daily, will originate on the Streetsblog.net site — where you’ll
also find links to nearly 400
independent member blogs around the country.
We hope that this will help to make the conversation among our
commenters even richer and more rewarding.
We want your feedback on the new system. So please, if you have any
questions, suggestions or complaints, you can leave them — for everyone —
in the comments.
