Thanks to my guest hosts

Now that I've got my legs back under me, let me extend a warm and hearty thanks to all of my guest bloggers from this past week. I think they did a great job, and it helped me to enjoy my time off more knowing that the site was in such capable hands. This was an experiment for me, and it's one that I'm filing under "Success". I expect to do this again in the future when travel plans do not allow for regular time online.

I'm very interested to know what you thought of this. Should I do it again? Would fewer guest hosts be better, or did this format work for you? Should I solicit nominations for future guest hosts? Please leave a comment or drop me a note (kuff - at - offthekuff - dot - com) and let me know. Thanks very much.

I think the biggest, most notable difference we saw was the local/state coverage just wasn't the same. Not good or bad in its own right ... just different. It was still fun from a guest-blogger perspective. I'm a little tempted to suggest that any future guest-blogging have a net cast out for some big-name blogger to fill in - either a current/former political candidate, or someone like a Dwight Silverman or Tim Fleck from the "real" news turf.

BTW - you're up for nomination at the Chronicle's Ultimate Houston. Time to shamelessly promote yourself.

So long as you don't go abandoning us every other week, I think the guest blogger thing was nice.
