While trying to throw together a review and a recap for a fantastic episode, not to mention planning filler to publish during the week long hiatus, I’m also getting around to some business that’s been on the to do list for a while, but will be worked on soon.
While I’m constantly tweaking the site, I’ve already told the hubby/technical adminstrator its time for some improvements. There are just some things about the site’s template I’m not happy with. Sure, I’m told that what sells sites is content quality, and we won’t be losing that, but I’m all about the user friendly interface. After all, part of that comes from my day job.
Here’s my goal:
- Better access to the archives. Let’s face it, the search interface is a joke. I’m hoping that when you click on a category, a list of articles and a description will display. There are too many good articles with great analysis getting buried here. We’ll see if we can pull that off.
- More opportunity for user interaction. How will I do that? No idea. Any suggestions?
- Fixing the template so that when you click on an article, it doesn’t get buried under the “Latest Articles,” “Follow Us,” and “Latest Comments” section. You should only see the article in the middle section and nothing else.
- A section that lists all the new entries of interest to other blogs as well as my other blogs. “TV For The Rest of Us” will get a relaunch soon, and it will have postings about other TV shows at least three times a week. It will that is if I have time to fix it!
So, how are we doing? You enjoying the site? What more on this site would you like to see? Do you like the polls? Do you like the video clips? Do the lengthy recaps entertain or annoy you? Is the perfect balance in the type of articles being achieved here?
Be candid, and you can post in comments or just send me a message in the “Contact Us” section. Or go ahead, say nothing. That means I’ll end up doing what my mad scientist brain comes up with.
