Sticky Posts

Sticky posts are a great idea on blogs and news sites, so why are they still so hard to do? Not to (overly) toot my own horn, but you could do this back in 1999 with my old GrokSoup blogging tool. Crazy.

  1. Maybe I’m just not seeing things properly, but what’s the benefit of sticky posts? I thought the whole point of blogging was to have a stream of consciousness (or unconsciousness, as the case may be) with newer material pushing down older material. Doesn’t sticky posts kind of ruin that whole thing?

  2. Yup, that’s true, but I think it’s also a little overly orthodox. While stream of consciousness is the default/preferred mode of blogging, it’s nice to blur the line with news sites and have the option of highlighting a story now and then.
