Ideas Required for New Weekly Feature

Thursdays are now free, with the Grammar and Punctuation feature coming to its natural end.
Currently, the day is being used to share a variety of interesting guest posts spanning different topics and genres.

From May onwards, we could start a new feature. A few of us have been bandying about some interesting ideas in the comment section of this post.

Would urge more people to join in the discussion, give more ideas, or feedback and suggestion on the existing ones.

Some ideas that have already been suggested are –

  1. Photo Feature (this seems to be the most favoured one as of now) – We have two suggestions for this feature.
    One is that every week, there would be a new theme. Members can share old or new pictures on that theme or their interpretation of it. (This would be quite similar to Daily Post’s WPC but the difference being that we’ll throw in additional restrictions or challenges to make it fun)
    Second idea is that we can do a photo post on people. Similar to Humans of New York and its various off-shoots. Members would be free to share photographs of people around them. It may or may not be accompanied by a written story. You could either take new pictures (with prior permission, of course) or share old ones along with a personal story of how that person (whether a kind deed of a stranger or a major influence of a known friend or relative) impacted your life.
    This feature may even inspire others to share their stories and could become a great starting point for more participation and conversations, on this forum.
  2. World Personalities – similar to Author Story. To ensure peace and harmony on this forum, we’ll have to keep the subject of Politics off limits. 😀 Focus should be on personalities from the world of Music, Sports, Art & Architecture, Business and Economics, Subjects like Mathematics, Philosophy, Religion, Astronomy etc.
  3. Travel Articles – Could be general articles on travel, or a specific place, or a travel review. One need not be a travel blogger to attempt this. Personal stories of a family vacation are welcome too.

All of these posts could be shared on your own blog, but since it is for a weekly feature for this forum, it would be nice if you would ‘Reblog’. that would also increase the visibility of this forum. Else, if you decide to post it on your blog, that’s fine too. But it would be nice to do it a couple of days later.

So the above is what has already been discussed.

Any one who I’ve missed tagging is also welcome to join, please.

I request you all to join in and come up with new and interesting ideas for the feature or share your suggestions in this thread, so we can all take part in the discussion at one place.

Once we have a general consensus and can come to 2 or 3 most favoured ones, we can then take a poll to see which one to run the feature with.

What do you think? What will work and what won’t? Do share your thoughts.
