AroundPhoenixville.com ideas for 2008

With things a bit slow as of late, I have had some time to think about what I want to do with both this blog and its sister site, BridgeAndMain.com. Here is what I have come up with, please let me know if you have any input or other ideas on how to make the site even better for '08.


  1. Make BridgeAndMain.com more of a resource for the community rather than a way to (ineffectively) market web design work. My thought is that it would become a full featured site used to promote the town. I am already using it for a number of the links you see at the top of the page. I am thinking of adding a message board area as well as finally getting to work on 'The Area'. More on this in a bit. Finally, the home page would serve as an overview of the different sections, so for those of you who liked having a place to see what events are coming up in the next week or so, this would be the place!

  2. With regards to 'The Area', over the next several weeks I am planning to add business listings to this section. Here, you will be able to get a listing of area businesses, broken down by category. You will be able to search for companies and there will be a way for users to create an account that will allow you to vote on and comment about the listings. The idea is that people will be able to use this area to learn about companies they may not have known about.

Well, that's about it in a nutshell. My hope is to start rolling these out over the next several weeks but we'll see how that goes. In the mean time, keep checking in, I am sure there will be something worthwhile to report any day now! :)

I like the changes you propose and truly appreciate your work keeping us informed about our town. Thanks! One comment, can you be sure the links back and forth between the two sites are visible. Maybe add to the right sidebars of both sites.

I have an RSS feed set up for your blogs, I check them everyday.

Keep up the great work.
Peace.

are you referring to a link between the blog and B&M? If so, I will be incorporating the same header across both sites so they appear integrated. Similar to what is in place now but perhaps with a few more buttons.

Thanks for reading!
