Suggestion: Preview related posts from blog.daml.com

We currently promote new blog posts from the forum.

But it would be nice if we could do the converse, and show related posts at the bottom of the blog (in an iframe?) - that way, people reading articles can see any feedback that has been given by the community. It might also drive people to sign up to the forum if they have any burning questions/comments!

As an easier first step maybe just a link at the end of such posts saying “Any questions or comment? Discuss on the DAML forum.”? Probably could be done in a few minutes for someone with edit access to the blog. Not as nice as seeing the full discussion inline but much less effort.

Using the forum as a discussion area for blog posts and putting a link to the blog post that promotes a tweet sounds like a very good idea. :slightly_smiling_face:

@andreolf and @nemanja are working on something like this and thus far have it supporting other posts on the blog itself.

Not sure how automatic/manual this would be to include links to the forum but worth considering.

oof, that’s going to be either super simple or super hard

This does sound like a good idea, @andreolf is already linking most blog posts from the forum so having a link from the blog to the forum post would be nice.

I guess what I’m getting at here is that it’s a good way to engage the audience. If you look at articles on sites like ars technica, you’ll see at the bottom there is a link ‘reader comments’, and articles tend to get a lot of feedback. That one, as of 9 hours after publication, had 400+ comments. Of course the audience is broader, but still, seems like an untapped potential!
