The blog has more than 600 entries. Additionally, there are well over 17,000 comments. Not surprisingly, some threads, though long and interesting, are old. Some of my readers are not likely going to post in those old threads -- for fear that no one will see them (except me). As an aside, I get an email any time someone posts a comment at CreditMattersBlog.com. I have a LOT of email. Anyhow, one of my readers made a suggestion this morning. I think it's a good one.
From here on out, I am going to create an "open topic/off topic" thread. I'll do that on Monday morning. The blog entry can be used for just about anything. As always, no attacks on each other will be permitted. Otherwise, almost anything goes. You can talk about anything. Importantly, though, you can use the thread to talk about credit issues that have not been addressed at my blog. Or you can talk about stuff that I have written about -- stuff that might have been written about months ago (where you might not want to post in the old thread).
I have no idea how many of my readers want this feature. It could be that none of my readers are interested in this kind of thing. Tell you what. I'm going to give this a whirl. If very few people post in it, I will assume that it's not something my readers want. If that's the case, don't be surprised if I discontinue it. If, however, I see that the thread is active, I will keep bumping the thread to the top of the blog each Monday.
We'll see how it turns out.
Thanks for reading. Thanks for supporting the blog. And thanks for sharing.
