We should have it so that users need to leave an email address for replies to their comments. This would encourage more commenting in the blogs.
the image uploading is WAY to complicated for the end user, need to adapt some of the features or remove them to make it much more obvious.
We really should limit the amount of posts that show up in the mainpage - of course there should be some sort of archiving function for each category as well so that the category sections dont get full to. Perhaps we could do it by date with a timestamp or something, even still what if a category gets more than a 100 entries in a month? Perhaps we could pageinate the listings in the monthy archive so that there is proper spiderability.
I am not even sure If I want to have the external links now that we have the post specific links - but for now we should keep them and be able to edit them. Perhaps that we be a good place to list other REW blogs.
We will find out when I make this post.
We should be able to show or hide the blog categories in the blogs. By default the categories should be set to show but there should be an option in the category manager to "hide" a category.

We need to have the ability to post unique links on each post made in our blogs - these links should be able to be added during the post, or added later and we need to be able to edit them whenever we want. To add a link, there should be a text field for title, url and description.
Just met with Terry Light and Jay Griffin - it as really nice to see some of the more mentionables in our little real estate web community out at the worlds premier conference for search engine marketers. For those of you not familiar with the event, SES stands for Search Engine Strategies and the conference in San Jose is the most touted of all SES's - why? Because we get to go party at Googleplex that's why! I got a chance to run some of my new search engine marketing ideas by some of t...
I need to remember to give Auliya the user and pass of the admin for the REW directory so that she can audit the links - anyone not in complience with the terms of submission will be removed. I really should remember to update that thing with a link check script and some unique content - oh yeah and RSS listings.
I have to make sure we have RSS feeds available for the REW blogs - i wonder what other cool features for syndication I should pack into this thing.
