Rate me

Now you can rate the posts on Traveling Hypothesis. You don’t have to say who you are or have anything meaningful to add to the posts to give some feedback and anonymously let others know what you think of what’s written there.

But what to rate on? Quality of the writing? How entertaining it was? How much you agree or disagree? I don’t think it matters much. Perhaps this will be a gut reaction; something akin to “I really just hated this, it was a waste of time. And you really ought to proofread more!” or, and this is much more likley of course, “Wow, this was great. After I am done sending the link to all my friends I am going to bookmark this so I’ll never lose this incredible insight.” Yeah, that’s much more likely!

Meanwhile, please let me, and others, know what you think with a simple click on the little squares at the bottom of each post. Five is good, one is not so good. (I can make it out of three or 10 or whatever, so let me know by leaving a comment what you think would work.) Come on, don’t be shy!

    A scale of 1 -10 leaves some more room for helpful criticism. I would have given your desert story a 9 on that scale not a 4. I just wanted to leave room for improvement. And I want to review the baudolino post because I had to go to amazon and read a synopsis to understand what on earth you were talking about. But leaving a 1 out of 5 seemed overly harsh. I just found it confusing in the name of not giving away plot. I did, however, almost buy a copy of baudolino I saw at a used book store on Khao Sarn, so it was memorable.

    Thanks. I don’t intend my book reviews to be reviews, but rather comments inspired by the books. I’ll be more careful about that. Thanks.

    why on earth let people rate you? there’s enough criticism in the world. isn’t the point of a blog to share your ideas and to let people comment if they like? that seems more constructive. i guess i’m just too insecure to ask for people to rate me.
