Blog Question: By Subject or By Blogger?

In case you haven't noticed (and I'm guessing most of you haven't) we're being a little more aggressive about cross posting with our blogs these days.

That means if you're scrolling down Jane Well's Funny Business blog, you could see a post that takes you to our Pony blog. Or you might find a discussion about tech stocks from a CNBC guest listed in Jim Goldman's Tech Check blog.

Some of our bloggers aren't fans of this practice: It's one thing to house or link to another blog post, much different thing to feature an entry that sends readers to another blog altogether. But it's becoming a fairly standard practice in the industry, especially among blogs that are in the same family. Go to Gawker, click on a tech related item, and you could very well end up on Valley Wag.

The idea is that it is better for the readers who are searching by subject. CNBC blog posts related tomedia appear here. Others related to sports issues appear here. Of course if readers are searching by author/blogger, that system isn't so great.

We're trying to get the best of both worlds with the current system, but either way it probably isn't perfect. Would love to hear what you folks think.
