I am enjoying this experience tremendously, as I am sure all the newbie editors are as well. I have noticed that there are many entries by members where either the entire text (or nearly) of a story appears to have been highlighted, with little or no comment, and other stories in which only a snippet has been highlighted- but it is an interesting snippet, a good story- but without comment by the NP member. Following the links or looking for the member's blog lets me know that these people can really write well, but are not doing it for the NP pieces.
Also there is the matter of people quoting from their own blogs and sites. I think they might be caught in a dilemma, at least those who are not plugging a product or spamming. The authors don't want to give NP an exclusive, and don't know how else to get attention for their original work. Even if the stories are based on some others, many of these self-referential entries link to good material. Thoughts?
How do we get people to write more of their own take on stories?
