We’ve been around for more than three and a half years on this site and 15 months on our old blog, altogether almost 5 years. So far, you seem to like our content, going by the number of hits and visitors and we appreciate your loyalty. We’re very pleased and proud that you think we’re doing a good job, but I don’t believe we should rest on our laurels because therein lies the road to apathy and discontent.
What do you think of changing the dynamic on the site, adding a few elements to enhance your experience and enjoyment by shaking things up a little to give you more of what you like, with an overlay of a new flavour? I hate it when things get stale, like a romance that’s been around for 25 years where the couple no longer has different moves and one partner is bored. I firmly believe that if you don’t constantly improve and offer new content you eventually become a part of yesteryear.
As some of you know, I decided for many reasons to stop the weekly production of the Friday Guys for the time being, and the Hot Tub boyz are shivering waiting for their turn. Kidding!! While this post is in no way my attempt to to find something to replace the Friday Guys (how can I ever replace them? – I’m already crying in my beer and it’s only 7.00 A.M. as I’m writing this). I’m seriously looking to get an infusion of ideas from you, our supporters over the years as well as new regulars, about what you would like to see on the site in addition to our current offerings.
We recently reintroduced flash reviews (200 words for books that are 7K or less) as a result of a suggestion from Stuart, and I hope you like them. But beyond that, what else would you like to see in terms of new content? Would you like news briefs abut what’s going on in the GBLTQ world? Realistically we would need a new person to do this so we would be looking for a volunteer with the right background to write the column. There is no free lunch here. Would you like brief movie recommendations of what’s currently playing, in terms of new releases in addition to our current reviews of gay movies? If you do, that means we would have to find real people who love movies and are willing to write at least one recommendation a week. BTW if you know of any good gay movies let me know as I’m trying to build up my collection. Would you like a new columnist who writes on a specific topic? If so, what? These are just suggestions as I’m more interested in your ideas. Sorry Ethan, no porn.
Your input is important to us, each and every one of you, as you are the reason we have been so successful. So get those little grey cells working and let’s hear from you.
