No one in the TeleRead community has spoken up in the wake of our post saying we’d swap “Morning Links” for “TeleRead Links.”
Does this mean we made our case—thus, no objections? Or that link-oriented posts just do not matter as much as our news and commentary exploring topics in depth?
My own theory is that TeleRead regulars are a sophisticated bunch and get news headlines anyway through Google News and elsewhere.
What they do care about most, I suspect, is detailed and authoritative analysis of the important and the interesting. That’s exactly what the TeleRead crew—all of them passionate e-bookers for years—can provide.
But who needs theory? Just tell us, directly, what you’re thinking. Should we keep up the link act or focus more on other posts? Meanwhile I’ll skip links today and tomorrow and—if no one really cares—forever.
The traffic angle: As noted earlier, other kinds of posts draw many more readers.
