I announced last week that I’ve partnered with Matt Chevy to do a redesign of this blog. This week, I’m sharing 3 separate posts to get your feedback and ideas about how I can make it as valuable to you as possible. Monday’s post focused on the content you’re after and want more of – if you missed it, you can read the post and weigh in with your feedback. Thanks to everyone that’s shared comments so far in this process!
I’m happy to take on the role of conversation starter, sharing news or case studies or ideas that are interesting and letting all of you run with it. And that’s just what happens here most of the time: there are around 500 posts and over 3,700 comments! Clearly there’s a lot more going on than just blog posts and I want to be sure that the redesign creates valuable ways to elevate and highlight the conversations and contributions from everyone visiting this space.
There are two focus areas below and some options for answers – please note there’s an “other” listed for both as I’m sure there are things I haven’t thought to include and hope you’ll feel open to listing them!
Focus: Content that’s conversation worthy
What helps or inspires you to dive into a conversation or share your own knowledge/experience after you read a post?
- Questions included at the end
- Seeing comments from others
- Direct/personal invitations
- Options to comment via other methods (Twitter, etc.)
Focus: Finding and following conversations
How would you like to be able to find conversations or follow them either on the blog or using other platforms tools?
- Recent comments highlighted in sidebar
- Popular conversations highlighted in sidebar
- Subscribe to comments
- Options for sharing comment/post via social media
Please share your responses in the comments – that way others can respond/reply to your feedback as well as leave their own. Matt and I will be both be responding, asking questions, and participating as well! Please share your ideas and feedback!
