After some crazy stuff that happened recently with my podcast hosting, the time has never seemed more clear to start working on a redesign of our main website. (The connection between the two being that I will eventually host the podcast on the new site instead of Libsyn.)
I had a phone meeting with my "tech guy" on Friday and he gave me an outline of what we could do to improve everyone's experience with our site and how much it will cost.
He's giving me a fantastic deal, but with Spirit Blade 3 prepping for production and the costs associated with it still not crystal clear, we'll likely need to proceed slowly in phases on the website.
In the next couple of weeks I'll be meeting with my designer to talk about the basics of the new site, so movement is already starting and I'll try to keep you all updated.
In fact, I hope to present some of what we talk about with you guys to get your feedback. While it won't be possible to please everybody, I'm hoping the new site will be something YOU guys like. (Otherwise, what's the point, right?)
I'm also considering a Kick-starter event and have already started dreaming up some cool and unique rewards for getting involved. More on that soon.
Anyway, I'm planning to use this thread as the main point of interaction with you guys regarding the new website design, so check back here often and leave any thoughts you might have. I know some of you have some great ideas, and I'd love to hear them! (I'd love to hear the bad ideas, too, for that matter!)
Both my tech guy and designer are really excited about working on this project and I'm excited to see it get started! Stay tuned for more soon!
