I asked this on our Twitter feed, but I'll ask it here as well. My goal is to have each component of our show have a unique voice.
Our main pillar, of course, is the weekly show. That is where we put our main energy and effort. No changes there, only improvements or minor revisions where necessary. In many ways, our shows today are no different than they were 2 or 3 years ago. The formula works, why screw around with it?
Our secondary content is now the Daily 5s, which I think have worked out very well. The consistent input from you, the audience, is all the result I need. By anchoring them on the show page, the goal was to have a drive to visit the site and that also seems to have worked out.
Our ugly duckling, in many ways, is our Twitter feed. Now you've heard me slam Twitter often, but as a supplement and not a main way of communication, I have seen value in it in many spaces. In light of that, I'd like to utilize what is a free communication tool to, you guessed it, communicate. By keeping it as an accessory and not foundational, when the time comes that it burns out we can drop it quick and not hurt anything important.
As always, I look to you guys for the direction on this. What would you like to see coming from our feed? Do you miss Lando's random questioning of the universe? What feeds do you read, and why? Let us know.
As ever, our audience helps steer the ship so shape the course baby!
