Thoughts on SBC- Stagnant

SBC seems to have become stagnant. I have not put a counter on the site to see how often anyone is still visiting, but I know that advertisers still want to participate in a link exchange regularly.

When this blog was first set up, there was quite a bit of interest and quite a bit of people that had interesting thoughts about sex or blogging related to sex. It was a useful resource for many because of the issues that were posted over time.

I know that we are all still thinking about sex. What's up? Have people found other useful venues such as forums or yahoo groups? Were people offended by a prior decision to remove non-contributing members? I have heard that some people choose not to read because of that decision.

What would make this site more interesting and vibrant to you?
Do you want an extensive blogroll of sex blogs?
Do you want open membership that is not actually listed on the website so you can write easily?
I'm not as committed to fancy websites as someone like AlexSuze- I have other things going in my life. But I do like SBC as a group project.

That means the question needs answered- what's not working, and what should change so that sex bloggers come here as a general resource.

I sent this post to as many people as I thought my be interested by email. I wanted it seen, and I don't think that SBC is being looked at much right now. I personally tend to focus on where we are right now, and what can be done for improvement. What needs to be done to revitalize SBC NOW. That may include addressing mistakes in the past. This was one comment that came back.

"I was a member of the site, then dropped because someone determined I didn't post "often enough." Needless to say, SBC fell off my radar after that. Asking me now why it's no longer vibrant might be better answered by those who made it less-inclusive than before."

I get all of the SBC posts via RSS, but I've had nothing to post recently, no questions to be asked.

I am available to answer questions if people ask though.

I follow SBC via RSS, and have found it a useful resource in the past.

I think it's the kind of thing that's there when you need it only. Maybe because there's so many rpevious posts, questions are answered there??? It also may be that bloggers come and go. Many of those I used to read aren't around anymore, and I'm certainly not prolific at all at the minute.

Maybe getting new people on board would be a good thing.

I liked that you asked the question BTW! Thanks

I agree: I think it doesnt have to be totally DYNAMIC (posting every day) to be uber-usefui. I read the posts when I see them, ask when I have a question, and answer when I can.

This is a great blog in that it does EXACTLY what it needs to do.
