Suggestions Needed!By Emily • Sep 1st, 2007 • Category: Article, Features
I have been running this site for 11 years now (oh wow…) and even though my layout has changed a few times, my format has remained pretty much the same. I pick some shoujo manga from my collection that I like, and I write about it.
My original goal was to just spread my love for shoujo manga, have fun talking about it, and maybe provide some inspiration/ideas for the people who do the translating (preferably licensing companies, but fan groups as well) of things that I think would be great for them to work on.
I still have this goal, and don’t want to change that, but I am also looking for ways I can improve this site, make it better or more enjoyable, and maybe increase traffic, too.
So I am looking for some suggestions from my visitors about what I can do to improve this site. Are there features I can offer that would make this better? A different way of arranging the site (like changed navigation), other topics I can write articles about?
The two things I CAN’T do are translate manga (I am not fluent enough for that) or provide manga/scanlation downloads. I have wanted to keep this site as legit/legal as possible. I know this is a wacky idea, considering all the sites that DO host scanlations and post manga for online reading, and how much traffic adding those would probably generate. But I am old, and I guess I am old school in my thinking ^_^; As it is, I already include lots of cover art, and those shoujo wallpapers, which aren’t used with permission. What other things can I offer? Hmmm.
Oh well, any suggestions you can offer would be appreciated. Please reply in the comments section below.
