PhotoBloggers all over the world are creating amazing stories every day. We are averaging about 150 stories per day now, that is almost 5,000 stories monthly! As a community of storytellers and photographers, we want these stories to be discovered. Afterall, Photoblog's purpose is to connect your stories with an audience.
Currently, tags are mandatory but they are not enough to discover all these wonderful stories. For example, @emilysmayy asked about Cuba in the forums. How can we let her and others easily discover things? Things that we want to discover and things that we didn't know we had an interest in.
Another solution is to show all posts under a given set of tags (Cuba, havana...etc) in one place. In version 2.0, we can aggregate tags into a single feed. So, Cuba section will show posts tagged with Havana, Varadero ...etc.
Do you want to become a Section moderator?
Sections could be anything; portraits, england, asia, japan...etc. We should allow moderators to manage tags for their sections. Maybe also allow adding tags to posts if the author missed something. Similar to Wikipedia's effort to self-govern and categorize things. Any thoughts on this?
How do you currently discover things in PhotoBlog, do you search or just stumble upon them?
