As hobo says, I sent him here from MilesBuzz to make this suggestion after he suggested it there.

And I like it.

For all the reasons hobo says:

Let's talk about the bloggers here, not on their blogs.

Let's decide how useful the info is and where it came from here, not there.

Let's talk about and expand upon their suggestions here, not there.

Most of the info posted in blogs comes from FlyerTalk in the first place, so it only seems natural and fitting that it come BACK here to be discussed. @:-)^

Open to ideas in terms of structure, but I am thinking just a Points and Miles Blogger forum with threads for blogs or blog posts makes good sense. Keep it loose.

The ONLY downside I could see is that if, for example, a blogger posts about a manufactured spend topic, it might duplicate a thread in manufactured spending about the same topic. But that is easily solved by posters placing a link to that conversation.

In fact, it might even become a fun pastime: find and link to the thread that the blogger data-mined his or her blog post from! ^
