I’m going to experiment with the approach for a while.
When I mentioned in a post a little while ago that I was thinking of going to a Q & A approach (a la the Ask Dave Taylor blog (and it was cool that Dave left a comment about that post)), I wasn’t as surprised by the number of negative reactions I got as I was by the most common reason that people gave me not to go that route – that I’d find the format too confining.
Maybe I will, but my initial thought was that it would actually be a less confining approach for me and I wanted to shake things up at DennisKennedy.Blog and try a different approach. I think that the Q & A approach will make it a bit easier for me to write more focused posts and maybe more posts, giving me the ability to cover more topics. I suspect that I’ll do a mixture of types of posts before I decide whether to adopt the new format completely.
Just to remind people: although I welcome questions from my readers and think that the Q & A approach will generate more of them, the question-and-answer format is simply a writing device where in most cases I’ll be writing both the questions and the answers.
Later, I may see what people think of the new format using the cool new Web 2.0 survey tool called Quimble that Tom Mighell just alerted me to.
