In our blog, we hope that you, the reader, will not stay only a reader! Instead, you can contribute in several ways (mostly as a prosumer, according to Jönson and Örnebring, 2011):
1) We will have a like-button on every post. Furthermore, you can share our blog on your own Facebook or Twitter page. By this, you can communicate with us in a quite simple and non-demanding way.
2) We encourage you to comment our posts. Comments can both be in the form of posting questions and/or writing other comments. We will then try to answer the questions and re-comment the comments. As such, the blogs are not seen as a product, but rather a process (Bruns, 2008): The post is not an end, but rather as a start for discussion.
3) We will make posts where we present examples of interactivity. We will then ask you guys to evaluate these examples from a number of parameters. These parameters could for instance be whether you feel that the interactivity adds value to your experience. By this, the success of the interactivity is not just evaluated by us, but we reach out to the crowds. By this, we also hope that the credibility of the blog increases.
4) We encourage people to give us examples of interactivity, which they would like us to look into. Also, if they have other relevant material, for instance new academic knowledge or other related blogs and articles, they could inform us about it. This will not limit our search for new material to the 3 people who started the blog, but instead, we use all our readers’ knowledge.
5) We will have a forum, where you can post whatever you like, as long as it is related to interactivity and journalism. This will give a possibility to go into stuff, we did not touch on the main site and as such, ensure that we do not make high gate-keeping controls but rather are open for our readers suggestions.
We hope that you will use some of these possibilities – together, we are better!
