Since we re-booted the site you good people have made 1,079 posts and 18,821 comments so we’ve built up a good head of steam I think. During the rebuilding of the site a lot of techie challenges we’ve encountered are due to the somewhat quirky foundations on which this site was built. We are a strange hybrid of social network, blog, online forum/message board and online magazine (reviews we write sometimes get cited in artists publicity!). We have doggedly stuck to the ‘blog & comment’ format which is one of the reasons it’s difficult to implement some of features you want as it’s a bit unorthodox nowadays, but to me it’s crucial to the DNA of the site and separates us from a mere ‘forum’. I was a relative latecomer to The Word site, I think I started posting mid 2009 so I’m a bit unclear as to the early days, did it start as a blog written by the staff which you commented on? Has anyone on here been blogging on the Word site right from the off?
