OlyBlog is a place where people can express themselves and communicate. It's a place to share concerns and perspectives that are all too often underrepresented, or even misrepresented or completely unrepresented, in the mainstream media. I would like to think it's a safe place, where people can share openly and honestly without fear of being attacked for their ideas, opinions or beliefs.
So I hope OlyBlog sticks around. I hope that OlyBlog is accessible. I hope it's accessible to the widest array of voices possible. With that thought in mind, is it possible that improvements or changes could be made to make OlyBlog better? Maybe not - that is, maybe it's set up pretty hunky dory. Maybe it's set up pretty much just right as-is.
But, maybe it could be better. What are your thoughts? If you think there is room for improvement, then what would help to make it better? What if that Berd guy wasn't around!? Would quicker page-load times help? Is OlyBlog inclusive enough? Is it intimidating? Difficult to enter the discussion? Are there features you would like to see? Specific problems?
I am interested in hearing constructive criticism and suggestions about the blog from any and all users. Which is not to indicate I have any power in actually changing things around here. But maybe the man behind the curtain will listen if we act nice.
What are some of your thoughts about OlyBlog?
