Clearing Out the LeanBlog Backlog

Sometimes, I have a collection of news stories or links that I either don’t have time to blog about, assume you don’t have time to read about, or don’t really merit a full blog post. So my “WIP” of “draft” posts or links I’ve set aside grows.

I’ll try to do this more often — clearing out the backlog. What do you think of this type of post? Better to do a post like this on Mondays? Fridays? Saturday?

Who can say “LeanBlog backlog” ten times fast?

    Hi Mark
    I have a regular series in which I post tidbits like this. I call it “News From You” because I get a lot of tips of interest from visitors (in addition to what I find) that similarly, don’t or can’t justify a singular entry. It’s good for announcements, brief press release mentions, opportunities, related news articles and even some arcane funny things reflecting my personal interests (readers like to know more about the blogger). I usually post it on Friday, a light way to end the week; people peruse it all weekend because being lengthy, it takes awhile to go through it. It is easily my most popular series. In fact, if I go three weeks without posting it, I get email about it.

    From a lean standpoint, the best way to compile it as they come up (daily), saving it to a WIP entry in ScribeFire (a firefox add on you’ll love if you’re not using it already).

    That’s an interesting posting by Intuit, I’ve come across them looking for tangentially lean related people, but this is far more explicit.

    Time to do some investigating, thanks for the post.
