I added a cool feature to my blog which enables my readers to rate the posts. The feature is provided by a startup called Outbrain. After you read each post, you are kindly requested to rate it using a 1-5 star rating system. The goal is:
- Allow me to focus my posts on topics which my readers find more relevant.
- Allow you to give something back by marking the more interesting posts for future readers.
There's also one more interesting goal, but that's something we will hopefully see in the future: find more content according to your preferences. As a reader, by highlighting the relevant posts I can tell the system what are my interests and the system can suggest more posts in relevant topics which were marked as interesting.
Outbrain is still in Beta and there are many features in the works. If you're reading this through RSS or e-mail, you will not see the Outbrain ranking system. You're more than welcome to click on the post link, go to the full post in my blog and rank it there. I'll appreciate it.
Finally, if you have any feedback on the ranking or any comment, please drop me a line, either by mail or as a comment to this post.
