As we ramp our efforts to turn our audience into a community, I've been thinking a lot about the possibilities of where our users come in to our content, other than as the audience. We want to be able to give you some say - directly or indirectly - as to what content goes up. This could come in a number of ways:
- general feedback - we'd love to hear from you about who you are, what you want to see more of (design and content), and what you don't really use on our site. Are there things we can do differently? Let us know that too.
- questions - we often get emails from users who would like help with a specific task on their list. Though we unfortunately can't connect you to the very resources you're looking for (like funders - sorry!), I definitely would like to see if we can answer your questions somehow in a meaningful and effective manner.
- topics you'd like to read more about - if there are topics you're interested about but haven't come across on our site, tell us - especially if you have a particular case or situation in mind.
As I've put it to AJ before in one of our morning chats, it would be fun to do a few "Ask SoJo!" posts, knowing that you have very real questions that sometimes need answers that aren't as obvious. And we want to make it as easier for you to access those answers -- since you have enough finding to do.
We'd generally like to take the feedback and questions and see if we can write an article or two for each of your questions or interests, because we'd like to share those lessons created and learned with everyone in the community. In your best interests, we would keep it confidential and anonymous unless you request otherwise.
Use the form or comment on this post below, or drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'm looking forward to hearing from all of you!
