Re-introduce the LJ Spotlight !!
Short, concise description of the idea
The LJ Spotlight featured four Communities and/or Journals which were note-worthy, thus publicising them to everyone's Home Page.
Full description of the idea
This used to be an excellent way of gaining an extra few thousand readers in a very short space of time - my own journal benefited from this on three or four occasions !!
I understand this feature, or something similar, is only available to Russian-speaking journal users, whereas we English-speakers only have four Communities featured on the 'LiveJournal Today' feature !! Personal journals that may well be amazingly interesting don't get a look in !!
Alternatively, the 'Live Journal Today' feature could be easily expanded to include interesting personal journals as well as Communities...
- 1. Particularly interesting personal Journals get exposure and publicity among the LJ community, thus increasing their traffic and their friend-count.
- 2. Every one gets a chance to find out about interesting journals that they may never get to hear about otherwise.
- 3. Other people get to recommend, and spread the word about a journal that they have found to be interesting to read on a regular basis.
- Actually, no drawbacks with this one - it's all good, providing the journal owner has been contacted and has agreed to be featured of course !!
