I've been thinking of ways to continually add content to the blog, and the most recent idea is to have a recurring series of posts detailing DIY "bloopers". The general idea is for users to submit "mistakes" they've made while improving their homes, and posting 5-10 of them in a monthly/bi-monthly series.

There are a few issues to resolve, before this can be done...

  • Is this even a good idea?
  • Will it get enough participation?
  • How will users submit their stories?
  • How will we choose the best submissions?
  • Can we offer a gift to the folks who submit stories that are used?

We also need a name for this series, but maybe I'll open a new meta question for that.

I love this!

"You're Doing it Wrong"


The chat room seems like a good way to submit stories.

Or maybe we could track them in trello.

  • I'd like to have a way to vote on the best stories, so it doesn't fall to a single person to pick the best.

    @Tester101 Hmm, maybe meta, each submission as it's own answer...

  • That's what I was thinking, ask a question on meta and allow folks to add their stories as answers. Then delete the stories that have been used.
