GooseGrade – Let Readers Edit Your Blog



gooseGrade If there is any grammatical, spelling etc mistake in the blog post which you have written, you will receive suggestions from your friends or readers through email or IM. Then you can edit the post and correct them. GooseGrade aims to take this to a new level by letting your blog readers correct them instead of mailing you about it.

You will have to insert a few lines of code to your blog template to activate this service. This will add a GooseGrade rating stamp to your posts and users can click that when they want to correct you. The correction mode will then open and users can make a recommendation or highlight things that need correction and send it our way. The posts GooseGrade value which starts at 100 will drop and will only increase after the correction has been accepted or rejected.

The blog owner will get notification for each correction, he can then decide whether he wants to correct it or not. This can of course lead to some more spamming but to counter that, GooseGrade will let you rate the crowd, each user will get an accuracy rating based on whether there suggestions are accepted or not.

To know more about this service, watch this video here. The service does look interesting but the success of it will depend upon the type of users you have or how much of a spamming can this counter. The service will be launched in Private beta very soon. What do you think about it ?

    Madhur,
    To be honest, I cannot really see the point of Goosegrade, that’s what spell checker is for.
    But this is just my opinion.
    I will be interested to read anyone elses opinion.
    Regards.
    Jeff
