First of all, I’d like to thank a number of individuals who sent Toby and me feedback regarding the SPD site. (We’ve even already made changes because of it!)
For example, we now have a link beneath each photograph on the site as it wasn’t fair to assume that folks knew to click on the images to launch into the new site. Now, there is a link that reads “Visit my site” so it’s perfectly clear.
We have received a number of comments asking for a “target=_ blank” request. Toby Joe still feels that this isn’t a good idea. I’m still open to suggestions. Do folks LIKE it when their sites open a new browser window? Or would you rather it open in the same window? Let us know if you care at all.
Also, we are still trying to work out how many and how often. We have a number of new sign ups after yesterday’s launch. Which is really exciting, but I need to figure out if we should up the number of times the site updates. I am wary of upping the number of people, I already think that 21 is a bit much considering, for some, you could toast a bagel, smother it with cream cheese, eat it and poop it out in the time it takes for the page to load. I’m still not sure what we’re going to do about this.
That’s all for now. Sometimes, it helps if I spell it out on here. I’m “taking notes out loud”, if you will.
